Was wondering if it would be possible to build a gaming PC using the Asus Z9PE-D8 WS LGA2011 Xeon/ Intel C602/ Quad CrossfireX & Quad SLI/ A&2GbE/ EEB Workstation Motherboard and use 2 Intel - Core i7 3970X Core i7 Extreme Edition 3970X? I know the MB says a Xeon but the socket is the same for the Extreme Edition CPU.

I doubt it since it's a chipset designed for the Xeon.

You'll have to use dual Xeons....the i7 is crippled so it won't work in SMP mode on a dual proc board.
