It is very likely that you need update the Bios in order to have it see the Intel® Core™ i7-970. If you are in the US here is a site that you can go to and some some resellers in your area. http://inteltechpros.com/
Give them a call to check if they have one of the early 1st generation Intel® Core™ processor in stock before you head over.
