GA-965P-S3 can a version 1.0 run a 1333 FSB CPU?

On the Gigabyte site it says the 3.0revision can run 1333FSB CPUs but the 1.0 version says nothing about 1333FSB. As the chipsets are the same does anyone know if I can run a core duo 6750 in it?

unfortunately rev 1.0 cant officially run 1333mhz because of a slight hardware difference, you can always try but chances are it wont work.

sorry man, i'm in the same boat as you if it makes you feel any better :p

Thanks, I've got a processor so I might try it but I have to see if that voids my chance of returning it to Frys. I could try a E4500 which overclocked might be as good.

I have a similar problem. I've been buying my parts 1 at a time and stupidly bought my MB last year but didn't buy my processor (waiting for prices to come down). I got a GA-965P-DS3 (rev.1) which is a good board but now it looks like I can't buy any of the E6X50 processors. It seems like a waste of money to buy an E6600 right now so I'm probably looking at an E6320 or E4500.

Sometimes these MB will support the new processors unofficially. I think both the 1.0 and 3.3 versions use the same bios so I might give it a try. If not my son will get the 6750 with the free ECS motherboard it came with and I'll overclock my current core 2 duo E4300
