    On the CPU support list the older Xeon's are listed but not the newer 22nm Ivybridge Xeon's. Hoping somebody here will give me a definite answer, don't want to order the CPU if it won't work :p.

    Didn't get any response from Gigabyte and thought what the hell i'll just order it and try it :p. Anyway arrived today and it works fine :). Performs around i7 3820 / i7 2600K level but runs really cool / quiet, using stock cooler and it's fine even during Intel burn test. Awesome chip.

    I think when 2 cores are being stressed they run @ 3.7Ghz when all 4 cores are being stressed they run @ 3.5Ghz.

    @ 3.5Ghz it's ridiculously quick..
