  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    Almost all X58 motherboards support i7 Xeon CPUs,however always check the manufacture's CPU support list and the latest BIOS.
  2. I've seen in many review sites that X58 motherboards show errors(fails to boot properly) when more than 1GB of memory is added.Is this true?
  3. No that's not true.
