Thank you for your responses I really appreciate the help.
Just one more thing, so it would be safe to test even if the processor is faulty in anyway without damaging my motherboard?
My reason being I currently have a E8400 processor on this board and once tested the Q6600 processor I would like to build a second PC for my sister to use for school and to play around with. I just need to make sure that my motherboard is safe so I wouldn't have to go buy a new board again. Thank You guys...!!!
