Mobo for a Intel Q8400 Tags: Homebuilt Intel Systems Product Last response: July 1, 2010 11:46 PM in Systems Share lowbudgetgamer2 June 30, 2010 10:13:48 PM I recently snagged a cheap Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Yorkfield 2.66GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor with out bothering to check if my old Asus P5WD2-E Premium mobo would support it. Sadly it won't and I'm in a bit of a pickle now as being a CPU NewEgg won't refund it. So I'm looking for a Mobo... or maby there is some bios software that will make it work? Both being 775 sockets and all. Looking for a good Mobo for: PSU: OCZ 700W StealthXStream CPU: Intel Q8400 RAM: 2gb COrsair XMS (800) x2 , 1gb COrsair XMS (800) x2 GPU: ATI 5770 I'd obviously prefer a software solution but a Mobo around $100 would work as well! Prefer to buy from NewEgg.com cheaper = better... also a good mobo for overclocking & Crossfire would be nice =-) Thanks!
