    Default CPU Upgrade

    I have Asus P6X58D-E with i7-940 and I just acquired a Xeon W3580. This processor should work with my board right? The supported CPU list on Asus site only list i7 processors for this board.

    Thanks

    Yes!
    You may need a bios update first though.........

    NICE!
    I think I had a W3520 in my old EVGAX58, watch make sure the auto voltage is normal. If I recall the Zeon's clock higher than normal CPU'S, I never had an Asus X58 but have had other Asus board so you should be very happy!! Enjoy!
