    Dual Proccessor Mainboards ?

    Hello guys, I wonder if any of you could advise\help me decide on a new board? Point me in the right direction ? I have 2 x 933 PIII(SECC) and 2 x 1.4 PIII(FCPGA) obviously I'd rather have the bigger chips on one board, but the 933's will do fine too. My problem is that I seem to be unable to find any boards that can take any more than 2 x1gig processors, and even at that I can only seem to fine Tyan boards, which I have never used or dealt with. so.................3 questions? who makes good dual pro boards? CAN I get a board to take more than 2 x 1Ghz ? Where can I find out more about them? Thankx in advance for ANY help anyone can offer, CHEERS!!

    If you don't mind shelling out a few pennies the latest Computer Shopper has a section on dual processor systems.

    It got a basic introduction and then reviews of boards and specs etc.

    all the boards review take 2Ghz plus and I think Tyan came out top though pretty pricey....

    Supermicro do some P3 tualatin boards with Via chipsets or serverworks chipsets. The serverworks chipset boards are proberbly expensive £400 upwards.
    Here is the link;

    Failing that you could always try Ebay. I got a 370DDE mobo off there. The box was still sealed and had never been used. Got the board for £95 same board from Scan at the time, £350.00.

    There are a few dual proc mobo's on ebay at the moment.
    Have a look

    Hey theres already a Thread!

    I was going to post a new thread till I found this one - I know nothing about dual proccesor setups - Im bidding on an old Tyan Tiger dual mobo (Slot 1) on Ebay - now do the processors have to be the same? or will a 233 and a 266 co-exist?

    Sorry as I said I know nothing
