Does Xeon X3210 work with the GA-965P-DS3 rev. 3.3 Tags: CPUs Xeon Last response: June 8, 2008 5:30 PM in CPUs Share m4infr4me June 8, 2008 1:08:06 PM Hi there. I have spent a good hour surfing around asking about this on various sites, but I can't seem to get a clear answer. Does the X3210 work in the GA-965P-DS3 rev. 3.3 ? Most people seem to say it works in the GA-965P-DS3 generally, and some say it dosn't, any experts want to put an end to my quest? =) I think some people are getting confused about revisions, I know r1 most likely wont work. My bios version is F12 (latest) by the way. Thanks in advance, mainframe.

You can get a q6600 GO for less or the next Xeon up the X3220. m4infr4me June 8, 2008 5:01:00 PM Thanks for your reply someguy, http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProdu... is the Item I'm looking at. Would you choose that or the Q6600, considering I have £20 store discount so I can get them for give or take exactly the same price. Shadow703793 a b à CPUs June 8, 2008 5:12:54 PM I would choose the Q6600, how ever XEON CPUs are (suppose) to be of higher bin than their counter parts so you may may not get a higher OC. JDocs June 8, 2008 5:30:50 PM If its a LGA775 Xeon its just a Core 2 binned as a Xeon thanks to the higher quality silicon. It should run with a bit lower volts but other than that they are almost identical. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
