Default v4 compatible dual socket boards

Building a high end CAD rig...

I've decided on the Intel Xeon E5-1650 v4 Broadwell 3.6 GHz LGA 2011-3 for the speed,

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...9SIA66K4MK0593

but I'd like a dual socket board (in case I decide I want crazy future upgrades). I was going to settle on the SUPERMICRO MBD-X10DRI-T-O Extended ATX

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...82E16813182934

but just one thing- is it compatible with a Xeon v4? I'm not sure-can't find anything to verify on the web-since newegg does say that the ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS EEB (https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...9SIABDC4AZ5419) is compatible with both v3 and v4- the Supermicro only says v3.

I think I'd rather go with Supermicro than Asus.

1650 is a single processor CPU. You will need a Xeon 2*** CPU to run dual socket.

You also only have listed a 6 core processor that's a grand. Something like my 7800x would run circles around it in a single processor environment. This is one of the "cheaper" dual socket compatible processors that isn't a low power variant.

This is the only V4 they have listed with a base clock of 3.0GHz, but it's a 12 core and 3 grand.

On the desktop side of things 2500 bucks will get you an 18 core unlocked CPU.

Now depending on what CAD software you're using it might be more dependent on GPU rather CPU. Check on that before spending a ton of Xeon processors.

This is my dream of designing (and god willing) building a space plane. So I'll need to simulate hypersonics in a virtual wind tunnel. That will take both speed plus lots of cores. Budget is around $8000 not including the software. I'll start out with free software and later perhaps move on to Siemens NX Unigraphics.

Precision will be important so I'll need to go the Xeon route with ECC memory. P5000 Quadro graphics card (but I might want SLI for future upgrades)

For the best price to speed to cores perhaps 2 X Intel Xeon E5-2640 V4 with 2.4 ghz. and 10 cores would be best

What motherboard would you recommend for this? I'd prefer to go with air cooling, but not all the Supermicros will accomodate a Noctua cooler. So I'm willing to consider liquid cooling.

To be safe I'll probably have to go with the 2 X Xeon E5-2689 v4 10-Core 3.1GHz turbo 3.8 (approx. $4500) and for the motherboard the ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011-3 ($750).

So with the P5000 ($2550 CAD), 64 GB of ram, 512 gb nvm ssd, psu, and coolers I'm looking at about 10 grand.
