  1. Check with Abit, they should give you the best answer
  2. One solution is get a P35 mobo, another solution is get a dual core cpu.
  3. The answer to this question is probably but it may report it as a C2D6600 untill it get's a bio's upgrade if and I say IF Abit dose one. I have had my Kentsfield Quad falsely reported as a dual core and then one day it jus started showing up as a 4 core on my start up screen. This was about a week after a bio's upgrade, and I have no idea why. Not saying that it isint alittle buggy on occasion but im having pretty good luck with my ASUS p-35 series P5K vanilla at about 130 to 140
    on the Egg. It allway's start's and run's. BA
  4. I can find no mention to quad support....also a 3 phase voltage regulator is just bare minimum for a Q6600(based on the fact that intels 3 phase boards say Q6600 MAX)

    no support from Abit(not even x6800...maybe the voltage system again)....sorry...but P35 boards are cheap :) so get one :p
  5. you need the chipset and bios edition info
