Novuake a c 114 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS February 8, 2013 6:46:50 PM No, unfortunately it does not support the I7-3930K. ONly server CPUs are supported. I am assuming this is due to the server CPU having a lower TDP(power requirement) than a desktop part.

OK what is the exact equivalent to the 3770? Hmm? neon neophyte a b V Motherboard February 8, 2013 7:23:17 PM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... technically the sever processor is 100mhz slower, but whatever. close enough to make the point. 3770s could very easily be ran in dual sockets if intel would just allow it. most certainly the slower desktop processors could be, but they still arent allowed. jbovio February 18, 2013 2:09:38 PM thx guyz , rly helpful nowikovs12 February 23, 2013 8:47:20 PM Hi guys, Can you run the ASUS Z9PE-D8, with just one xeon chip?
