Compatibility of Processors and Motherboards, Yet Again Lol

So I want to know if a ASUS Sabertooth X79 and an AMD-8350 Eight-Core processor are compatible and if that was any good to begin with or should I stick with an ASUS Sabertooth X79 and an Intel Core i5-3820 Quad-Core processor? Will have 16GB Gskill Trident X 2400Mhz Ram and an EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 780 if that will matter.

    that mother board is for Intel CPU , the SandyBridge - e

    will not work with AMD
  2. Umm the ASUS Sabertooth X79 is an LGA 2011 socket which is intel so no, not even close. The AMD requires a motherboard with an AM3+ socket and the Intel 3820 is an i7. It performs roughly at par with the 8350 in most areas so you wouldn't see a dramatic difference anyway, better sticking with your same motherboard and just getting a new intel...can't believe i just said that considering i just bought a AMD FX 6350
  3. Reading the specs of that board, it does not support 2400 DDR3. Only up to 1866.

    As it is Intel cpus with intel motherboards. Amd cpus with amd motherboards. Each requiring the correct sockets with the board.
    And to quote SNA3, that board will only support the SB -E i7/Xeon cpus.
