Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all,

struggling to find a decent 2x socket 1366 mobo with pcie slots

im using 2x xeon w3690

been looking at ebay and the best price vs performance mobo that I could find thus far that also looks good is the z800

here is a link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-HP-Z800-Workstation-Motherboard-Systemboard-Dual-LGA-1366-576202-001-/230658365549

anyone ever used this board or see any problems I may occur? I have built several pcs before but never on the xeon side of things.

That motherboard is great in theory, however it uses a lot of proprietary power connectors. It is possible to get it working with a regular power supply but it takes a good deal of modding. The mounting holes are non standard as well so it will also take some mods to make it fit in a case.

This is your best shot, the EVGA gaming motherboards are no where to be found unfortunately.
