    Default Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9750 supported?

    Hello All,

    I have a GA-EP45-UD3R motherboard. I believe it is Rev. 1.1, but it may be 1.0. I am inheriting an Intel Core 2 Extreme CPU. It is the QX9750, but it's not listed on the CPU Support list. There is not much information on this CPU, but from what I can find, it is an LGA775 CPU with a 1600 MHz FSB. It appears to be very similar to the QX9650 which I can find on the CPU Support list.

    Would this CPU be supported on my motherboard? Obviously, I do not want to risk damage to the motherboard or the CPU, so any information would be appreciated. Would any of you try it out or would this be too risky???

    Thanks,
    -Mel

    The CPU is officially supported:
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - CPU Support List - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.1)
    If I were you I would not get that CPU though, since you can buy a Q9650 or Q9550 for much less and easily overclock them to the QX9770s speed. The Q9650s are also better overall overclockers since they're all based on the newer E0 stepping.
    It takes less than a minute to make the overclocking settings in the BIOS and for a low overclock like that you don't need to do much testing or any tweaking at all.

    Nickel020,

    Where is the QX9750 listed? I'm afraid I don't see it.

    Where did you find it?

    Mmm ok so it isnt actually listed,but i would be very very suprised if it didnt work with the board.I think it even works with 333mhz p35's.
    If you are in any doubt my offer is still open.
    Seriously tho its a v expensive cpu or was .
    I suppose u could contact Gig directly.I couuldnt resist trying it out tho,if I had the board and cpu.

    It will work fine, just like Xenon cpus, not supported because since socket 939 days motherboard companies cannot support server processors.

    Anyway it will work just like the other cpu's in the similar family that are on the list.
    New Q9650, Gigabyte UD3P, 4GB OCZ Platinum, Asus TOP 4850, Antec TP3 550W, Vista 64 SP1/XP SP3.
