Ok Guys & gals I have a question for you, which im sure somebody in here can give me the answer. First let me just state that I am a mainframe guy with tons of knowledge regarding IBM hardware,utilities,code etc. Having said that I'm lacking pc technical knowledge as it is not a factor in the mainframe data center protocol. So the intel CPU listed below is sold as a server CPU! Why couldnt it be used or could it as a pc processor? If so whats the difference between the difference between the two?
Server cpus require ecc ram, either registered or non-registered. Depends on the motherboard. I don't know if 1155 server cpus will run with desktops; a few old xeons ran on desktops, but the new cpus may not.
not all 1155 mobos will support it, but given the right ram there's no reason why it won't work. But there's nothing in it from a performance point of view, perhaps a little lower voltage, perhaps the ability to a little faster. And greater cost.
