Anyone ever made a mini-ITX board that supports Xeons?

Either current, or gens past (this is not a gaming rig)

I'd like to build something small and for fun, with some Xeons I have around, but I've yet to find a board that specifically states support for Xeons.

Anyone know of anything? I'll likely (if I can find one) be picking this up from eBay, so used/last gen (or older) is fine.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

There are lots of itx server boards, that suppot xeons, there pretty rare and not super cheap though.

 

Your not gonna find a dual xeon itx board if you want that.

 

 

What socket?

I know a dual Xeon won't fit in an ITX build.

As to the socket, I've got from LGA 1156 and up, and if need be, I'll buy a used Xeon. Again, this is justa  fun build, so it doesn't have to be SOTA.

You'll easily find them if you're willing to go with the 1150 socket. Otherwise, probably not super common.

dual sided? That would be one weird looking system. You could also use daughter boards, but whats the use case.

There are lots of 115x itx xeon/server boards out there, I had one for 1155 from intel, but it has since died.

Why

Why? As in "Why are you doing this?" 

Because I build oddball systems for fun, it's a hobby of mine.

 

If it's any other "Why?" then you'll have to explain as I don't understand your question

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

SuperMicro makes a bunch just look up their website, they have some socket type and some are directly soldered on.

 

Thought about putting one in my mITX build.

ever thought of messing with low power ITX boards from asrock (and recently also gigabyte)? you can build domething with all new components for less than 300$, and they make for decent media boxes.

Come to think of it, I've got some Opterons around as well, maybe an Opteron mITX build could be suitably oddball...

RGB water-cooled mITX Opteron....yeah, that could be fun to put together :)

I haven't. For my streaming media I have a NAS (well, several) so that part is covered,

But I will look into asrock's site and see what they offer.

Setting up a big cluster is always a good excluse to get lots of computers.

Heh, plus they have hidden hardware set to spy on you (or so the newspaper's claim)

The price is a rather large issue with that.

But since I"m looking for the impossible, what about a mITX that supports Opterons?

I could go even more obscure!
