Looking for rare (nonexistent?) Core 2 Duo motherboard

  1. I have a Full Tower case, and my system is already built with a Core 2 Duo E6600. I had ordered another E6600 for a client who backed out, and now I'm stuck with the bill.

    Instead of building another system with the leftover CPU, I am thinking about using it in my existing system IF I can find a dual-processor motherboard which supports Core 2 Duo processors.

    I have looked all over, and most of the mobos are for Xeon CPU's. Please let me know if you are aware of a motherboard which fits the bill.

    Thank you

    I have not heard of any dual cpu boards that support C2D processors. I checked around and all I found were server boards also.

    There is no such motherboard.

    Core are consumer products and are designed to be single-socket only. You have to get Xeons for two or more sockets.
