What chipset do I need in order to use intel Active Management Technology (part of vPro technology)?

Is it supported by X58? Wikipedia says only about Q57 but it's LGA 1156 sockets and also I would prefer using some better chipset.

For the vPro 2010 platform, the chipsets are Intel Q57, QS57, OR QM57 Express Chipset. You can find processor and chipset details in this paper:

Hey Michele welcome to the Super User community. You don't need to append your name onto answers. A good place to put that is on your profile page. Just FYI ;) – KronoS Feb 2 '11 at 22:15

It appears that vPro is only usable on Q57 based chips, which means you can't use 9xx series i7's, only 8xx series.
