Tri/quad socket am3+ mobo ?

is there such i thing ? i know you can get multi socket mobo's for server CPU's, what about desktop CPU's ? more specifically am3+, also is it true that standard versions of windows dont support multi cpu's ? saw on a forum that you need some sort of server version

one with FOUR sockets? Are you TRYING to make a central heating unit? I have owned scrap servers with four intel sockets, but no AMD. and because of having four sockets, the motherboard wasnt ATX.

Just going off the top of my head, I don't think AMD was ever really popular for server CPUs / multi socket motherboards, so if you find one, it's like a unicorn from my knowledge. I think you're talking about windows enterprise, but I've seen people with dual CPU configurations run WIN7 PRO before.

Those do exist.. Just not AMD, to my knowledge Heck, there are even 8 CPU motherboards.

I use mine. PC stays under 70 degrees anywhere in the system. Pretty good for over 400W TDP

yeah. well my h80i transfers the heat with the room a bit too easely, so I have a cool cpu (50-60) but a heated up house.   if I want it to be cooler I just open the window :P

In reno nevada, one does not simply "open a window" to make it cooler.

Most new desktops have more power now than this.

I am sorry, I couldnt do it. the sockets arent in straight lines with each other.

Fair enough :). This model came with an expansion board to add 4 more CPUs for a octa CPU solution.
