Can I run E6550 on a P5N32-SLI Deluxe?

Need to revive my old MB for a few hours, so I can get all data off a RAID 0 before I upgrade to a new MB.
WIll this CPU work?

  1. Yeah, I'm aware of that. But I read in some other forums that it ***is*** possible to run CPUs other than the official support list.
    I'm trying to avoid a complicated RAID reconstruct....

    If anyone has a working old P5N32-SLI Deluxe that is willing to help me with this, please contact me.
  2. If you already have both the CPU and motherboard, then you lose nothing giving it a try. Just don't expect it to work perfectly, if at all.
  3. Is there no risk of damaging the E6550? It's coming off a working PC....
  4. Probably not as it most likely won't even power up. You can buy a compatible CPU for $10-$20.
