    Default Do Xeons work with x58 Motherboards?

    Hello everyone!
    My first post here

    ok, so I want to try a Xeon CPU
    after some searching, i have found this:
    Newegg.com - Intel Xeon E5620 Westmere 2.4GHz 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processor BX80614E5620
    a Xeon 5620

    Now my question is, will this CPU work with normal x58 motherboards?

    I'm currently considering this motherboard:
    Newegg.com - ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    will it work?
    If not, is there any x58 motherboards that this Xeon will work with?

    if the Xeon 5620 will not work with x58s, with the Xeon 3*** series work?

    thank you

    Only certain boards will support the 5xxx Xeons, you'll have to google around using the Xeon series you are looking at and the motherboard name you are thinking of getting.

    Most all will work fine with the 3xxx Xeons, but you may need a 920 to update the BIOS first on some.

    can you maybe recommend a board for the 5xxx series?
