E7 on regular 2011 boards?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried running E7 Xeons on regular Dual Socket 2011 boards that support E5?

Looking at things like E7-4890v2, but I don't have the funds for the huge quad socket boards. I assume it won't work, but if anyone has experience, please let me know.

Thank you, I did some research and realized my foolishness. It seems there are some decent Dual Socket 2011-1 boards, but all of them cost around three times as much as the old 2011. RIP my cheap dreams.
