Ordered 8 (!) X5670's from a reseller that thought these were just useless Server parts.

Paid $90 each. U mad?

I love the X58 platform so much. I have been running a renderfarm on this platform for 6 years now and have never run into hardware failure. My total machine count is now 8.

So what's the consensus on the best "bang for your buck" dual socket mobo? Seems like there are a lot of supermicro boards on ebay, but they need BIOS updates before the x5600 westmere chips work. Is there a better option in the ATX form factor?

That supermicro and one from gigabyte are the only ones that fit your needs.
Flashing the bios is the easy part...just buy a cheap e55xx quad.

Most people that you find with. Dual xeons are probably running an hp workstation or a derivate.

Yeah I saw that article with the guy that retrofitted the HP motherboard and had to do all that drilling and rewiring. Really trying to avoid those kind of holdups.

I have an Asus ZN8A in an Antec case dual x5650. Not a bad board.
Had to buy a OEM server workstation sound card for 25$ but even that works good.
post #3708 of 13379
Wish I had that board
post #3709 of 13379
That is a server board, not really a workstation board. Only supports 95W cpu's, it uses the 5500 chipset , workstations will use the 5520 chipset....but u probably did a good deal on it smile.gif

I'd like to be added to this club. Upgraded from an i7 950. Best $150 I've ever spent considering inflation and how much the 950 cost when I got it. And here I thought I was going to have to get one of those new new cpus, upgrade the mobo and possibly RAM...HA
