I'm aware of only the Supermicro X9DAX family of motherboards that
- is dual Xeon E5/E5v2
- has 16 dimms (not 8)
- can overclock the bclk
- can force ram speed and timings
I know of motherboards 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?
