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

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?
