Need advice in upgrading my WS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello everyone

i have right now 2 xeon x5675 3.07ghz
48 gb ram ecc
gtx titan
and a supermicro motherboard

i work in 3d vfx and i am considering changing my motherboard as i cannot put any extra card.

i saw that asus has the Z9PE-D8 WS
The thing is that i cant find anything on google about compatibility between my CPU and that mobo.
Do you have any idea if it will work, considering i want to keep the rest of my setup.

If not do you have any advice on which motherboard i could get?

thank you for your help

I would tell you to check the offical CPU support list... but it leads no where: https://www.asus.com/support/Search-Result/?keyword=Z9PE-D8%20WS

Your issue is that the current mobo only has a single x16 PCIe slot?

Does it have any other PCIe slots... especially open back ones? PCIe is upward/downward compatible so you can use any PCIe slot as long as bandwidth is not an issue.
Once again...

smile.gif thanks for answering i am more of an "artist" i would say than a tec guy.
i just know that i could eventually put my titan as well as a tesla and a quadro on those asus motherboard
which i can t do physically in my current mobo that i can tell you
As well i heard that my mobo is a server mobo and i should get a WS mobo

i just looked at my mobo, the GPU is in a small slot while i have 3 longer white slot empty...

thanks again


EDIT: i found this link with supported CPU
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/list.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&s=42&m=Z9PE-D8%20WS&os=&hashedid=RZPEclJRfocDAjTX

i guess it is a no go for me then frown.gif

A server mobo would generally have more features than a WS mobo... they usually has additional remote management ports and/or additional storage controllers.
