    as OMGWTFBBQ!!! as that may be... those CPUs wont go on that board :p

    plus the sensible voice in my head says bang for buck would probably swing in favour of a shitload of 2x00 SB chips [and parts to turn them into PCs]

    Why not just buy a data centre or a section in a data centre and fill it with blade systems.

    All joking aside I do have a spare eight-core X7560 sitting in my desk drawer right now. It's so big, every now and then I get it out to scare the lads into writing faster :lol:

    James you tease! :p :lol: lol Looking forward to some reviews on these and the 10 core bad boys later in the year, if you want any longer-term testing done I have spare data centre space ;)

    It's already been reviewed (I linked to it in my last post), but we haven't been able to review the 10-core version yet as they're pretty rare so getting hold of a system is proving a challenge.

    Perhaps once Computex is out of the way I'll have time to chase up Intel again, and maybe borrow some more time on one of its clusters too :D
