I never had one for P4's, but I've had several Dual P3 CPU motherboards made by SuperMicro.  Personally, I've found their stuff reliable (probably bought 20-25 of their boards over the years and only one was DOA and non have died later if they worked out of the box.

Can't get a dual-processor P4 motherboard. The P4 wasn't designed to work in MP systems. Intel released the Xeon for that purpose.

Yes, that's correct - P4s are not dual capable.  You need Xeons to run dual CPUs.

dinorama,
                 I would love to see a Dual P4 Motherboard ... but there is no such Motherboard that supports the Standard Pentium4 on Dual Sockets on a Single Motherboard. The reason being Intel has not tested or released any Chipsets that Supports the Dual P4s. You may find Intel Chipsets on Motherboards that support dual P4 Xeon Processors, but never a P4.

If you are stilll looking for one, probably its a waste of time.... instead you can sell one processor and get a great motherboard that supports a single 478 socket P4 HT motherboard.

But New things come everyday.. so if you come across anything like this,  please do let us know.

Good Luck.

Cheers
Sinu
