Intel's Xeon Shows Its Stuff in 7 Motherboards

SuperMicro X6DA8-G2 (I7525), Continued

Eight memory sockets allow for a maximum memory equipment of 32 GB.

When DDR2-400 is used, eight two GB DIMMs can be deployed in order to provide 16 GB RAM.

A total of eight fan headers using the advanced 4-pin headers are available on the X6DA8-G2.

The two CPU and six system fan headers can be monitored and controlled by the motherboard.

Using the 6700PXH bridge, this board offers a second physical x16 connector, running in x4 mode.

Both x16 slots (one running x16 mode, the other one running x4) have been placed in order to allow for NVIDIA's SLI mode to be used.
