Does Xeon X3210 work with the GA-965P-DS3 rev. 3.3

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.

  2. Anyone got any idea about this? Gigabte GA-965P-DS3 Rev 3.3
  3. It should work without a problem. Its just a kentsfield. I wouldnt pick one up not unless you are getting a good deal on one. You can get a q6600 GO for less or the next Xeon up the X3220.
  4. Thanks for your reply someguy, http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=718552 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
