    Dual socket motherboard for 12 core Snow Leopard 10.6.8

    I've been looking but can't seem to find any info on this. Are there any dual socket motherboards compatible with snow leopard? I know it's old but it's the only OS that I like, and is fully stable with my software. In 2019 the single socket just wouldn't cut it.
