All Octanes can do dual processors, BUT....

You need a specific motherboard to be able to take certain processors.

This page....


covers everything.

The 030-1467 mainboard (the newer one that takes everything) is fairly
hard to come by, Kurt and I have been looking for them for a while. Your
best bet would be to try to find a R12k 270MHz processor machine, that is
one sure way to get a 1467 (that's what I did). tecomputers had one on
eBay not long ago (I bought it now for $399).

Where are you located?
