Yea, me.

You CAN NOT USE 2 i7 CPU's IN A DUAL LGA1366 MOTHERBOARD, IT WILL NOT WORK.

The CPU must have 2 QPI links in order to work in a dual CPU/LGA1366 motherboard, only the 55xx series Xeon's will work.

It sure sounds like me but I sure as hell didn't email that rag . They must have read my forum posts and decided to write about it themselves.
