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?

I will be using them on a ASUS Z8NA-D6 motherboard.

I'm looking forward to hear from you.

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! :hello:

Wow thanks!

I'm going to use the computer for 3D rendering and as my main computer.

I'm using SolidWorks and Rhino (Maxwell and Vray as renders).

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?
