EVGA X58 Xeon

I have worked with several X58 boards before but they were all ASUS which does not require any soldering to get a Xeon to work. I picked up an EVGA X58 SLI micro and was wondering if I have to short it. The reason to short it is to disable the second QPI link which X56x0 xeons have, the W series xeons do not have 2 QPI links, so should I be gtg without soldering?
