EVGA Classified SR-2


“The Mother of All Mother Boards”

That is what they call the scariest motherboard I have ever seen, I have built the infamous Intel SkullTrail and that monster was a beast, but this is just another creature. Running dual Intel Xeon processors, 12 Dimms for up to 48 GB DDR3 Ram, Two Sata III, Two USB 3.0, and a very big board. Every once in a while there is a piece of hardware which just blows you out of the water, the last one for me was the Skulltrail and I got it after a long time, and not the Classified SR-2 from EVGA. They really outdid themselves, has twin LGA1366 sockets, providing the foundation for a colossal 12-core, 24-threaded monster box, and it’s worth noting that Intel’s Core i7-980X isn’t supported. This board is so big they had to make use of the new acronym, HPTX, which is bigger the ATX boards which are the usual size in computers. It can be yours for about $600 and that doesn’t include the extremely expensive Intel Xeons that you have to get the heart beating in this beast, but if your looking for something that can eat up all you can throw at it then this is where you start.
