Mobo for a Intel Q8400
Jun 30, 2010, 10:13 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 =-)

The ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo should meet your requirements:
I don't know if it's a good overclocker. Socket 775 motherboards are getting harder to find.

^+1... that motherboard is the best LGA 775 you can currently buy. IMO
Can't find your answer ? Ask !
