More about difference server boards desktop
  1. Server motherboards have essentially the same components as regular motherboards but with different features and benefits.

    The difference mainly relies on the CPU. Server mobos only hold server CPUs = Xeons / Opertons. The other stuff (exception of Q-B line of Intel) = The Core ix, Pentium, Celeron, Phenom, Athlons, etc.
  2. The short answer: ECC buffered RAM and dual processor support.

    The more detailed answer: Server motherboards are designed from top to bottom to support a much greater workload from multiple users. Better board circuitry, faster bus speeds. That's not to say you have to use server hardware for a multi-user system. I recently built a server to support ~8-10 users, all moving files around constantly and running memory intense applications, using an Asus Rampage board, an i7-990x Extreme CPU and 24GB DDR3 RAM. It's never had so much as a hiccup in performance. However, be certain that the servers that run Facebook and Google are far more robust as they have to handle heavy traffic constantly.

    I hope this answers your question.
