the ws/b does:
Newegg.com - ASUS L1N64-SLI WS/B Dual 1207(F) NVIDIA nForce 680a SLI SSI CEB Server Motherboard - Server Motherboards
350 bucks...ouch.

and nosir, i wasn't running my ram but at like 875ish for the superpi crown.
you should be able to recapture the lead pretty easily...
i have no problem losing it to an esteemed fellow overclocker such as yourself.

at least i think thats how it was

but i know quad opties are 1207.. i just needa see if i can shove them on this board


*edit*

this just in!!! got tired of the 8800gts... and i'm reverting back to an EVGA 8800gtx

glad to hop back on a card thats held its weight for over a year
sry to tell u this, but AMD scrapped the idea of having two Phenoms on one mobo back in Q4 2007. This was all over the internetz at the time, where were u?

Actually, I was reading a review of the Barcellonas yesterday which said that they would be backward-compatible with the 1207 boards (with a possible BIOS update), but that the new features wouldn't work.
