Dazed&confused about S5520HC/SC motherboards

I'm currently in search for motherboard compatible with https://ark.intel.com/products/47920/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5670-12M-Cache-2_93-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QP... Xeon X5670. I finally put my eye on https://ark.intel.com/products/36599/Intel-Server-Board-S5520HC S5520HC - there are plenty of good deals on ebay..but when I decided to double-check compatibility with X5670 I found out it supports https://ark.intel.com/products/47920/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5670-12M-Cache-2_93-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QP... @compatibility S5520SC, not HC. Which is sad cause there's not so many of them on ebay. I can't even tell what's the difference between them - here's comparsion on intel's site and everything seems to be the https://ark.intel.com/compare/36600,36599 same

Can somebody shed light on this?

Hi Grindelwaldus,

 

 

The Intel® Server Board S5520HC supports the https://ark.intel.com/products/47920/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5670-12M-Cache-2_93-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QP... Intel® Xeon® Processor X5670

 

 

The board is not included as compatible with the processor because this board was sold included with the https://ark.intel.com/products/48654/Intel-Server-System-SC5650HCBRPR Intel® Server System SC5650HCBRPR.

 

 

Both boards are very similar, the S5520HC includes more numbers of PCIe lanes, this board is considered as Server board while the S5520SC as Workstation.

 

 

It is possible to compare both boards on the link below: https://ark.intel.com/compare/36600,36599 Compare Intel® Products

 

 

I hope my answers solve your questions.

 

 

Regards,
