Has anyone tried to run a Q6600 on a P5NSLI motherboard. I read online that people are but it is not listed on the Asus site Cpu list for the board. But the new Pernyn are , Go figure. The board supports the PCG05A standard. If you tried it and it works let me know. Thanks

I found the following at the ASUS support site, you can find it here.

"There is no BIOS support and that is probably because of voltage regulation/chipset problems with this board and the quad 45nm processors. According to the people I talk to at Asus, the 680i and earlier chipset mainboards will not support 45nm quad core processors".

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
