Hi all,


I'm aware of only the Supermicro X9DAX family of motherboards that


  1. is dual Xeon E5/E5v2
  2. has 16 dimms (not 8)
  3. can overclock the bclk
  4. can force ram speed and timings


I'm aware of workstation mobos like the ASUS Z9PE-D8 which can do all except it only has 8 dimms. I need 16 slots. The ASUS Z9PE-D16 does not meet criteria 3 and 4 (server board vs workstation board).


The Supermicro X9DAX is non-standard size and also pretty expensive.


Does anyone know of another motherboard meeting all criteria above? How about only criteria 1-3?
