65nm CPU fsb 1066 with a 1333/1600 fsb mobo?

I was looking at picking up a q6600 kentsfield 65nm Quad Core, which has an FSB of 1066, along with this motherboard:

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

It's a great deal right now and has what I am looking for, however, the FSB supported reads 1333/1600. I almost ordered it and then stopped.

Will this chip and mobo work together?

If not, any other suggestions for a great, comparable motherboard for the same price that will work with this processor?

  3. Doesnt matter.... I'm running FSB 1800 on a 1600 Mainboard. 1066 means that its just 266 quadpumped (266x4). They will work.
  4. The 1333/1600 fsb on the mobo specs are the max fsb it can handle. I've got a Q6600 running on a Asus P5Q Deluxe and it's fine, even oc'ed it to 3.0 ghz with no problems.
