  1. According to the CPU support list, no: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_2011/P9X79_LE/#CPUS

    You can try it if you like, and it may work, but it's kind of an"at your own risk" sort of thing.
  2. These gigabyte boards support the e5-2650, but may require ecc ram; check the ram recommendations carefully: http://www.gigabyte.us/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?v=AE72F6F9D4ADD0D7AC6B234F544E3B263DB8C4AF85FFA34B4609958B3150E330&s=Socket 2011&cs=Intel X79.I would email gigabyte tech support and see if the 2660 will run. http://www.gigabyte.us/support-downloads/support-downloads.aspx
