Tags: CPUs Xeon Workstations Motherboards Last response: November 12, 2012 3:28 AM in CPUs Share charlesp2 November 2, 2012 8:37:46 PM Hello, DYING to know - Is DUAL Xeon E3-1230 possible? I mean running two of those chips on ONE Xeon motherboard? And if possible, what motherboard do you guys suggest? I'm looking for a workstation for renderings, and two of these running in one system would be awesome! If so I will order now! Thanks for the info guys.
