Intel Xeon Quad-Core E5410

im building a new computer and someone recommended that i should get an Intel Xeon Quad-Core E5410 with a gigabyte GA-x48T-DQ6 motherboard...

when i ordered these parts the person at the computer place said that the mother board i wanted didnt support the E5410.

i just want to know if this is true or not

any help in this regard is much appreciated.

(oh and the other parts im getting to build this computer are: Gigabyte 1GB GF9600GT video card, Corsair Twin 3x2048-1333C9G 2GB DDR3 ram)

More about intel xeon quad core e5410
  1. intel xeon is socket 771

    ga x48t dq6 is socket 775
  2. so it is not compatible
  3. so it wont work then..?

    should i opt to get the intel xeon quad-core x3350 instead?

    whats the main difference between the e5410 and the x3350 if there are any major?
  4. thx btw th_username for clearing that up
  5. Don't bother with a Xeon, just get a regular Q9XXX processor (like the Q9450). Unless you want an unlocked multiplier and are prepared to pay for it, then go for the QX9650. All of those CPUs are Socket 775.
  6. I would suggest a Q6600 and overclock it or a Q9450 or a Q9300 (less cache). A quad is a bit more future proof ... particulaly if you OC it.

    The 5140 is also a doul core ... not cheap either ... and slow (2.33).

    Why bother with a Zeon unless your sure it will run in that mobo properly ... yes I did see a few LGA775 quad Zeon's going cheaper than their Q counterparts a few weeks ago ... and they are supposed to be superior silicon ... whether they overclock better is not confirmed either.

    Your money might be better spent on an E8400 ... a decently fast dual core.


    An ATI 4850 graphics card would be better value for money.

    Use the search threads options here at THG ... there is tons of useful stuff at your fingertips.

    Here are a few:

  7. The main difference between the Intel Xeon E/Q3xxxx series and Q/E5xxx series is the fact that the Q/E5 series can run 2 chips per a northbridge(typically on northbridge per motherboard).

    But since this is on an X48 mobo (single socket), that isn't really an issue :)
  9. Yeah but he asked whats the difference between them so I was just explaining.

    Yes your right, X48 is a single socket and a monster performance board.
  10. thanks you guys have been so much help
