65nm CPU fsb 1066 with a 1333/1600 fsb mobo? Tags: Motherboards Product Last response: November 11, 2008 6:01 AM in Motherboards Share dannyaa November 11, 2008 5:06:49 AM 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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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? Thanks!

They will work. aeiouandxyz November 11, 2008 6:01:57 AM The 1333/1600 fsb on the mobo specs are the max fsb it can handle.
