So I am going to try converting a Shuttle HOT-613 (Single) into a Shuttle HOT-613 (Dual) by adding a CPU socket and VRM socket since it has the open spaces available on the motherboard. It appears I just need to remove the solder from the holes, then mount the two sockets. I have the connectors (new socket 8 CPU socket, and a VRM socket available I can desolder from a scrap board).
Does anyone have a good high-resolution picture available of the HOT-613 DUAL motherboard? Preferably I would like to see both CPU sockets unpopulated to confirm if I need to add or remove capacitors, and any surrounding areas that I may need to add components to. I know the 2nd CPU socket is missing some SMD capacitors, but those might be taken care of by adding the VRM module -- if not I'll need to see which ones I need to add, if it mirrors the first CPU socket or not. Capacitors on socket #1 that appear to be missing on socket #2 are labeled C226 (16V? / 22uF Tantalum).
Here are some pictures of my HOT-613 (Single) for comparison..
