SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRL-3F-O ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
If I use two E52600 processors, I will have 8 processors available. How can I be sure to use all? SBS 2008 at this time and SQL 2008 and Exchange are the primary programs in use all day. There is also a custom biz app written in ASP.NET and C# that drives the interface on the client machines via IE9.
Question is, is there anything special I need to make sure my tech does when setting us up so that all cores are getting used?
And ram, is there some majic about 2 channels? What is the trick for ram configuration? And DDR2 or DDR3? Should I start a second question on the ram portion? There will be 4 slots each for cpu's ram? And I need to use same amount of ram for both cpu's, right? What about channels for ram?
