p5n32-e SLI what cpu to get
« on: June 17, 2009, 04:52:24 pm »
Ok boys, need some help and stumbled upon my own stupidity in finding something suitable...

Went to the computershop i usually visit and had a friendly chat there, but i THINK i gave that guy the wrong motherboard name as he was looking through hardware sections and told me my only chance to upgrade was a Q-6700 processor... FROM an E6600 dual 2.4ghz

but i think something went wrong with the 32 i mentioned.. or forgot to mention..
i'm dazed and confused now (wasn't i always) as to the what's and the where's....

so.. the search continues for the P5N32-e SLI  motherboard to cradle a new processor..

i think .. for research only .. that i might have sayd to the guy p5nE- sli... could someone double check that please, as i'm pretty sure my board can handle more then "just" a q6700..... (and that one's unavailable) (i'd like to look in the q8-series processors.. as aiming for the 9000 series is too rich for my budget.

Sorry and thank you for making you work where my brainpaste ends...

Woof ~ WOof

ehr.. current bios is at 1403 i think it was.. flashed it before and am not too worried about flashing it again.. the Bios Pete... the bios!

Your board with a list of Processors it can take and what Bios they need.

Core 2 Quad Q6700 (2.66GHz,1066FSB,L2:2X4MB,rev.G0,4 cores)

Core 2 Extreme QX6850(revG0,3.00GHz,1333FSB,L2:2X4MB)

Core 2 Duo E8600 (3.33GHz,1333FSB,L2:6MB,65W,rev.E0)

Those are the Highest, so basically anything will go......With a Bios Flash :handbag:
