hello i am new here as yoy may have already gathered but i already have 1 issue i need help with
i have a xfx 780i motherboard and a q9650 when i try and boot i get either ff or it will post to 20 (these are post codes im referring to) i tried with a celeron 420 and the exact same thing has happened, this may be a stupid question but this mean the motherboard needs replacing or the processor ?
What about the Q9550? If it shows the Q9550 as compatible, the Q9650 should be.
The green font is the link to XFX 780i's compatible CPUs, it shows the 780i is compatible with the QX6850, QX9650, QX6800, QX6800, and a few others, but not the Q9650 or the Q9550, that's why I suggested redend look for a BIOS update. He said his board would not POST with the Q9650.
Since he has a $300 CPU, he may want to get a BIOS update, if available, or buy a compatible motherboard. Or sell the Q9650..................
well to be honest ive had nothing but problems with this board, i was looking at the xfx 750i or teh evga 780i supreme board as they both list it as compatible, however for a short time i did manage to get the q9650 working on the xfx 780i
