    But you can't plug a Core i7 into a nehalem EP server board if I'm not mistaken ;>

    That remains to be seen, once we've had time to set up the various comparison systems its definitely something we're going to try out.

    Ohh James I have Neh-EP Supermicro pics for you - I'll dig them out and update this is necessary (servers aren't my forte). They had some interesting things with linking up X58s to get multi-multi-PCI-E!

    i really doubt these will sell anywhere near the core i7 920 price.....although having a server CPU in your desktop is pretty cool to show off with

    I'm guessing you'd still need ECC DDR3 if you plug it into the x58 desktop motherboards, no?

    Uh.. good point. Yea, I'd think so, and a BIOS update most likely.

    Not in the case of the MSI X58 Eclipse we tried, it worked like a charm with bog standard DDR3 so it would appear the memory controller has profiles for both unbuffered and registered ECC DDR3 :hip:
