Yup, try finding one that has all the bells and whistles someone would want in a consumer grade motherboard that is not a crippled MATX board. Then you have to luck into a good performing 1356 CPU. It's easier to find and put together workstation versions of Xeon CPU's. Unless you get lucky or make a lot of compromises, Socket 1356 is a waste of time and money, IMHO.lexluthermiester, LGA1356 is a server platform indeed. However, there are several Chinese manufacturers which make desktop personal use motherboards for LGA1156, 1366, 1356, 2011 and other obsolete Xeon CPUs which were decommissioned from data centers, etc.
