    Default GA-8I915ME lack of compatibility with Intel Quad q8400 BIG problem !

    Hello

    I have GA-8I915ME and i have bought new Intel quad Q8400 processor which isn't supported with this mobo. It's vary strange because Q8300 is supported. I have F6 latest BIOS and when I run a computer with a processor Q8400 computer will not start. I can't even enter to the BIOS.

    - So my it is any solution to run this motherboard with this porcessor ?
    - Is any unofficial version of BIOS supporting Intel q8400 ??

    PLEASE HELP

    you could try to contract gigabyte support and ask them for a bios with support for q8400.

    You are still gonna have trouble flashing the bios unless you have a older cpu that will boot the system up in order to flash the bios.

    Contacting gigabyte support is about the only way I know if you could get support for that cpu in that motherboard.

    Yes I have got old CPU . I cant even make a complaint because box with processor was opened and they don't want this CPU back.
    I think that gigabyte doesn't help me because motherboard is not under warranty. :(

    Maybe in the forum is any unofficial BIOS to this mobo ? Im searching but cant find .
