Default Dual cpu for eight core bulldozer

Anyone know of a good mother board that can support two bulldozers (eight core) on one motherboard?

Actually I think I might want to go dual with these,
Supermicro AMD Opteron 6272 2.10 GHz Processor Socket G34 LGA-1944 16 Core 16MB Cache - SuperMicro - PSO-6272-210-16M6400

Sorry double post.

You are better with the 6174s for folding, and the Asus KGPE-D16 is a great board. Tyan and Supermicro make some too.

you would need a server motherboard

asus kgpe-16

I tried to order those 6272's a few months back and ncix couldn't get them for me.
Also, the bulldozer opterons (6200's) are no great hell, magny-cours (6100's) are still the way to go.

And, You would probably need to pickup a 6128 chip in order to flash your board's bios so it could accept 6200 series opterons too. (AFAIK it won't come with the latest bios that has 6200 chip supprt).

as previously noted, it would be best to just pickup some 6168's or 6174's whatever your budget can handle.

You guys know where I can get them cheaper then 800+? I tried ebay and might have found a pair of used ones, should I go for it or? This would be my first folding rig so think I should just go with the two eight core or aim for two of the 12 core for around $700 a pair?

Also, never buy these from china, taiwan and such right?
