Question Dual P4 2.8Ghz compatable motherboard?

Does anyone know if it is possible to run two Intel P4 2.8Ghz Northwood Processors with 800mhz FSBs on a single motherboard? A friend is thinking of giving me his processor and I have one exactly the same and was wondering if I could swap out my motherboard (ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe) with a dual processor supported board?

However it is possible to run dual pentium 4's

This was done by some university students (or a processor, something like that) with a custom motherboard.

However for you, impossible

nope. Can't be done at this time. But, you should tell him you want it anyway. Then you could get some really good 478 cooling and try to overclock the piss outta the 2.8GHz. If you fry the CPU, don't worry, you've got another one!!!
