Greetings,

I am planning to build a semi workstation for the purposes of chess analysis.

My current plan is to have dual xeon e5 2670 (8 cores, 2.6ghz) on Asus Z9pa-D8 motherboard.

I have not yet planned the other components. I already have two hack builds (1. i54460 on Ga Z97 HD3 and 2. i7 6700k on ga z170 d3h). i was wondering if I could use this new one as a hack as well.

Have people had success with duel xeon builds so far?
I had seen a thread a while ego for whom it had worked but I believe the mobo was supermicro. Asus would do as well?

It isnt absolutely necessary that I run Sierra or any MacOS on the new build but it would be nice if I could.

Requesting your thoughts and opinions

Thanks
