Two separate MBUS modules (like the SM51).  As far as Sun is concerned, 
you can't use double-CPU modules, or Hypersparcs in an SS[12]000(E).  
That mostly has to do with its use of the XDBUS; the bus presented to 
the CPU isn't MBUS, but it's handled just fine by Sun CPUs that have an 
MXCC on them.

That being said, I've never tried something like an SM512; it might 
work. And. if it does, it'll probably end up creating too much heat.
