Motherboard for Intel Xeon ES?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an Intel QA88 Engineering Sample, and I am wondering what motherboard I should use for it. I was thinking maybe a Sabertooth X79, Rampage IV Gene, or Rampage IV Extreme. I have seen people use other engineering sample xeons on these boards, but not yet a QA88 (E5-2650) ES. The processor has B0 stepping.
Here is some data on it:

I have one of these exact procs. Posting and running perfectly on an asrock extreme 4

I can try on my R IV E if you'd like. Just let me know

Good news. QA88 on RIVE BIOS 1202. Personally, confirmed working.

Just popped it on and it POSTed right up
