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.

If you check Intel's site for the E3-1230's capabilities, it is a single-socket CPU just like every other LGA1155 CPU in existence since the LGA1155 pinout lacks the whole QPI bus needed for multi-socket.
