I have a lot of "old" computers and been wondering if anyone has made a board or some other way of using multiple cpu's or bunching a lot of different ram together and that way making a homebuilt "super computer. I mean there's a lot of hardware lying around :thumbup2:

I have never seen a board that supports different ram types (ddr, ddr2, ddr3) at the same time, that or different socket cpu's.

 

The most sockets I have seen on one board in person was 4 example: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/server-motherboards/server-board-s4600lh-s4600lt.html

 

That board supports these cpus: http://ark.intel.com/products/series/64581/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-4600-Product-Family

 

Another example of 4 socket board: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C600/X9QRi-F_.cfm

 

Question: what would you need extra cpu power for?

Ive heard of people taking lots of computers and networking them together and basically doing it that way, using a linux Hybrid. I would have no clue on where to start doing that though, would take a level of expertise and knowledge way above me.
