The i7 series processors are really desktop processors. As you likely know, server processors are the Xeon series. The WX58BP workstation board supports both Xeon and i7 series processors. The WX58BP workstation board does support the i7-950 processor. See the Intel® Workstation Board WX58BP Tested processor list for more information. However, the WX58BP only supports 16 GB maximum total system memory.
Thanks John, as I said in my original post the WX58BP is almost the same motherboard than DX58SO, also it has the same limitations.
I was playing around Intel's site and figured out there is no Workstation or Desktop board supporting the 24 GB of RAM, and it has no sence to me buying a Server boar. At least for the purposes I need the computer.
I'm thinking about resigning 8 GB of RAM by buying the DX58SO or moving to another motherboards manufacturer. Gigabyte is the other option I'm considering.
GA-X58A-UD3R (Rev 2.0) or GA-X58A-UD5 (Rev 2.0). Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
