Tags: New Build Processors Motherboards Compatibility Systems Last response: June 10, 2009 5:15 PM in Systems Share kafka7 June 10, 2009 3:21:50 PM I'm building a new system and was just making sure that the following processor/motherboard combo will be compatible. I was also wondering if there were any things I needed to watch out for. Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz, with 6MB L2 cache. Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX More about : processor motherboard compatibility hundredislandsboy a b V Motherboard June 10, 2009 3:39:02 PM Yes. very compatible. The Nortbridge cooler on that motherboard doesn't look too big and will fit an Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro because you'll want to run that e8400 at least to 3. Ghz. kafka7 June 10, 2009 3:55:40 PM What about the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX? If it can fit the same fan, I guess I'll get the fan as well?
