Q9650 memory compatability question Tags: CPUs DDR3 Motherboards Memory Last response: March 1, 2013 1:47 PM in CPUs Share tomjoad39 March 1, 2013 9:57:33 AM Hi. I am currently using an Intel q9650 Cpu with a motherboard that only supports DDR2 memory. If I upgrade a little to a motherboard that supports DDR3, will the 9650 be compatable with the DDR3 memory?
