Intel's Nehalem has a lot of potential for overclocking which has been well exploited in the mass market thus far but the one place that we're severely lacking in options is the dual socket Xeon Nehalems. I know that ASUS does not currently have or plan to have such a dual socket board but I'd like to express an interest in having one in case the idea can gain traction.
I have a workstation using the Z8NA-D6 which is a nice board (especially for its size) but I feel somewhat limited. My memory only runs at 1066 even though the memory I had available when I built this can run up to 1600. The processors are running cool and sipping a tiny amount of voltage, well under what EPS can supply but I have no option to make them run faster.
At this point the only option I have is the EVGA SR-2 which has a ton of features that I don't need and a price tag of $600. I know I'm not the only one who would like to see an alternative. In my mind it doesn't even have to differ from a server board that much. Possibly two PCI-E slots for SLI but I don't see a need for the 7 slots that the SR-2 has. Heck, I'd be happy with my D6 if it could overclock with a modded BIOS. I don't even care if I have to void the warranty to do so.
ASUS makes the MARS which are arguably the most overkill cards on the planet but we don't have a motherboard to put them in.
