  1. I do not believe they made a dual LGA775 board but LGA771 for Xeon is a different story.
  2. The Q9550 can't be used with more than 1 in a board, you need either a special platform like the Skulltrail, or a server/workstation set up. Regular desktop chips aren't designed to communicate with each other like the Xeon line is, so none of the consumer desktop boards have more than 1 socket because the processors can't be used.
  3. send both 9550s to me and i will put all four dies on one cpu and send the finished chip back to you, now because the board does not officially support the modified chip it will look like only 1 9550 is in use but it will infact be two

    Can you recommend a server/workstation set up? The skulltrails wont work from what I've found

    You cannot use 2 Q9550 in one motherboard because they are not designed to communicate with each other.

    Since socket 775 CPUs are not designed to communicate with each other there are no motherboards designed to use two Q9550s.

    Do you think there's a way to do it? Are you gonna open the processor's seal ?
  7. andrern, no, there isn't a way to do it. xaira is pulling your leg and it came off in his hand.
