Okay so I am planning to build my first Desktop PC and I was googling for as many tips and suggestions I can find, and I was happy with my finding and ordered the parts. Later I found out that the FSB speed of my interl Core 2 Duo CPU was 1066mhz but my motherboards FSB was 1600/1333MHz.


CPU= http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115059

Motherboard= http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128359


My question is will it still work? and will it damage the parts if I put it together and boot it up. ??? PLease help as the products have shipped and if its not compatible I would like to exchange them ASAP!

Hey mate, welcome :)

If you look carefully at the manufacturer's support page for the motherboard, it will have a "CPU Support List".

For that particular motherboard, it's here: http://www.gigabyte....?ProductID=2916

The E7600 is not on the list as it's very new. It's possible that a future BIOS update may address that, currently it won't work.

Just for future reference, though, you'll notice that the FSB on a motherboard is usually advertised as a maximum. Go ahead and scroll down the CPU support list to the bottom - WHOA! - it supports a 533MHz FSB??!! Pretty flexible motherboard. :)

Cheers

Thanks troy,


Just sent a email out to gigabyte inquiring about it. Do you think E7500 would be a good replacement for this processor??
