    Question Could dual Xeon run each on 4pin EPS Cable?

    PSU came with single 8pin(2x4 split) EPS cable. Motherboard comes with 2x8pin connectors. Do you guys see a problem if I split the 1x8pin into 2x4pin from the PSU and power each CPU with only 4pin. I believe the max 4pin draw was around 190watts vs e2697v3 shows max TDP of 145W so...

    Question Is LGA2011-3 Mobo backwards compatible with LGA2011-1 CPU?

    Hi there, I'm looking to upgrade my current server to an E7-8850 v2 and need a new motherboard for it. I looked on CPU World and it lists the socket as LGA2011-1. I've tried around for a motherboard, but I can't find any LGA2011-1, only LGA2011-3. Is it ok to buy a v3 motherboard and use this CPU?
