HD (?) SUPERMICRO X7DBR-i - LGA771 Motherboard

I just ordered this for a pair of Xeons I have.



Not going to post the link because some miserable queer (BigFuzzyArchon) will accuse me of spamming referral links.

Regardless of the seemingly outrageous List Price, this was the best deal I could find on a dual 771 motherboard

edit: consumer depot has it for the same price, but my shipping would have been $39.53

By far the cheapest dual 771 I've ever seen.

A word of warning to others, though. It's a non-standard I/O layout since it's designed for certain supermicro 1U chassis. Plus, you'd have to find compatible risers to use all the expansion slots. Either way, you'd be looking at case mods if you don't run it naked.

The slot layout is a bit different from the pic above, too.

At some point this morning, they reset their available stock to 3

Only 3 left in stock--order soon.
I'm going to cancel my order, I was hoping to build with existing components but it doesn't seem like this board will be very accomodating.

edit: may be too late to cancel, I don't see the option on my order page.

Forgive my ignorance but what would you use this for? Can it be used for general purpose computing or is it specialized for some other use?

tried to cancel my order but its already on the way. I have 2 really old 2u chassis (they are actually from the Gaia render farm used for Final Fantasy ) I can customize to make this work, but i dont really want to spend the money on a power supply

damn impulse buy
