Yeah, I know that.  But before I even get that far, simply going from
a single CPU in slot 0 to CPUs in slots 0 and 1 (both in the front),
the CPU in slot 1 isn't seen by the BIOS.  This is on the K570.

On the K370, I get a little further: the system sees CPUs 0, 1, and 2.
But when I put the last one into slot 3, the box refuses to turn on!

Am I doing something stupid here?
