    Default Is it Possible??

    Newbie question and i may sound stupid.

    Can you build a Hackint0sh with not only one..but two Intel® Core™ i7-2600S Processors (8M Cache, 2.80 GHz)

    Is there such a MOBO that could do it?

    I something powerful for film editing and 3D graphics.
    Any advice for building the mother of all mother editing systems?

    Default No, I don't think it is...

    Questions are never stupid, only answers. With that in mind, I'll proceed cautiously.

    No, none of the new Sandybridge motherboards I've seen come equipped with two LGA-1155 sockets. I don't think these processors are equipped to be doubled up like that. It's funny, however, that you chose the i7-2600S as opposed to the i7-2600 or i7-2600K. Both of those have the same archetecture, but both run at 3.4GHz instead of 2.8. They wouldn't be 21% faster as the speed difference suggests, but
    the benchmarks I've seen show they would do the tasks you seem to be interested in faster.

    It's also funny since the i7-2600S isn't yet available at the retail level. I know this because I have been waiting for one to finish a small system I'm building. The main job for this little guy will be to do something similar to what you're after (maybe) - that is, compressing very large HD AVI files down to tiny .MP4s. I don't know what the issue is at Intel, but they're not releasing and there is no word yet as to when they will.

    My reason for sticking with the S-chip has to do with another feature this guy will be called upon to do, namely, to park itself from time to time under my big flat panel TV and serve up movies stored at my desktop in the den. I need something small, fast, cool and quiet and a system built around the new i7-2600S should fit the bill. Here's what I'm doing:

    M350 Universal Mini-ITX Case
    w/PicoPSU-90 (90watt) 7 102W AC power adapter
    ASUS P8H67I motherboard
    Intel i7-2600S (as mentioned)
    Dynatron K129 passive CPU cooler
    G Skill (2x4GB) SO-DIMM DDR3 DRAM
    Crucial C300 256GB SSD
    Windows 7 Pro

    I know this is outside the Apple world, but I thought it might help.
