Tags: CPUs Xeon Processors Last response: March 5, 2011 1:00 PM in CPUs Share fretsch March 5, 2011 11:50:54 AM Hello, is it possible to use 2 x W3565 CPUS's in a dual setup, or will it only work in a single processor configuration? More about : xeon 3565 dual fretsch March 5, 2011 11:58:59 AM I will be using them on a ASUS Z8NA-D6 motherboard. I'm looking forward to hear from you. warmon6 a b à CPUs March 5, 2011 12:17:55 PM for that cpu, it can only work in a single cpu configuration. For a cpu your wanting, you'll need to look for one that has 2 QPI links or it says "Max CPU Configuration 2" For example like this http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=47925 Another easy way to identify cpu's for dual and single configurations by there name (unless intel change something that i dont know of) W= Single cpu configuration (workstation) E= Dual configuration L= Dual configuration (low power cpu's) X= high end dual configuration. So for example the W3565 cpu can only be in a single cpu configuration. Hope this helps and welcome to Tom's hardware forums! Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Do you think that a dual E5620 will be a good choice? I'm also looking at a singe i7 970. What would you prefer? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
