Most LGA 1366 Xeons support multiple CPUs.

 

Pretty much all workstation branded Xeons will support multiple CPUs.

 

I think most of the LGA 2011/2011-3 Xeons support it as well.

I believe the higher end LGA 1150 Xeons do as well.

You may want to check sales of hardware from datacenters.

 

for example see specialized forums like webhostingtalk.com , companies often try to sell hardware they no longer want (usually due to high electricity costs for performance, or going out of lease, etc)

 

See for example, which imho is a decent deal if you're in US:  http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1736703

We have the following used server hardware available for sale:
 

Supermicro 4-Bay, Dual E5-2670v1, 2 x 480GB SSD, ECC REG DDR3, IPMI, Rail Kit.

Good shape, fully functional, recent pulls, some typical minor scratches/dings from pallet stacking and installations.

Available locations, RAM installed, and current available quantities:
Dallas, TX - Quantity (22) w/128GB RAM
Los Angeles, CA - Quantity (9) w/128GB RAM
Las Vegas, NV - Quantity (7) w/128GB RAM
Buffalo, NY - Quantity (5) w/256GB RAM and (2) w/128GB RAM


$950 on 128 GB systems
$1350 on 256GB systems


NOTE: This is a fair price compared to current going rates for components parted out on Ebay.

FREE PICKUP, or exact cost shipping, or transfer to your account at same Data Centers.

These are a mixture of X9DRW-3F, X9DRI-LN4F+, and X9DRW-IF
128GB typically have 16x8GB chips, while 256GB are usually 16x8GB + 8x16GB chips.
Most RAM is 10600R, a mixture of PC3 and PC3L, a handful may have 12800R.
Most have (2) 2.5" trays with the SSDs, and (2) unused 3.5" trays.
Most of the SSD drives are about 2-years old, as we swapped those in and removed the SATA drives on these.

If you are to buy multi CPU, just make sure to get the same CPU. If you get 2 different kind, there are compatibility rules, but they're so strict you're better off getting the same CPU instead of mixing and matching.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

dont know old Xeons, but newer ones with names that start with E[number] show their multi socket support with the second number in the name. For example, E5 1680 supports 1 CPU per board, while E7 8870 supports 8 CPUs per board.

How old? Craft computing on YouTube just reviewed a 36 core dual "X79" that kicks ass for multithread editing rendering.

With intel it's super easy for Sandy-E and newer...  E5-2XXX is all capable of 2+ CPU systems... the 2 means 2 DMI links; 4XXX=4 CPU capable... and as @asand1 pointed out CraftComputing recently did a video on this via a "Dual X79" Huanan board from china.
