3930k is not designed to work in dual cpu configurations. you will need a workstation intel cpu for that. not desktop.

No, unfortunately it does not support the I7-3930K. ONly server CPUs are supported. I am assuming this is due to the server CPU having a lower TDP(power requirement) than a desktop part.

its not tdp. the ivybridge 4 core processors are an example of why it isnt. 3770 wont work in dual cpu configurations whereas there is an exact equivilent, tdp and all, to the 3770 for servers.

it is just how intel operates.

OK what is the exact equivalent to the 3770? Hmm?

Hi guys,

Can you run the ASUS Z9PE-D8, with just one xeon chip? Leaving the other socket empty?

Thanks
