    DX58SO + Xeon E5540=?


      I'm planning to replace my core i7 920 with Xeon E5540 for webhosting needs

      but I see that this xeon requires 6 channel ddr3 rams and has 2x5.86gt/s qpi unlike the i7 920 which requires only 3 channel ddr3 rams and has only 1x4.8gt/s qpi.

      besides, DX58SO has only 4 ram slots, is E5540 not recommended for this board? I need a clarification for this
