hi to all,

 

i am thinking to upgrade my old intel celeron g530 sandy bridge socket 1155 with an intel xeon e3 1220 or e3 1225 sandy bridge but according to the follow site those cpu's are not supported for my asus p8h61m-le motherboard (scroll down for xeon supported cpu's)

 

http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/P8H61-M_LE.html

 

certainly i can find an i3 but the xeon have four physical cores and is a much better cpu 

 

thanks

Some Xeon's are supported on that motherboard, although there is a confusing statement that "some features" may not work - https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H61M_LE/HelpDesk_CPU/

 

The board will take up to a Core i7-3770K, a 4 core, 8 thread CPU.  Really there is little advantage to the Xeon processors over the Core branded equivalent. They support ECC memory, probably not relevant to most desktop users.  https://ark.intel.com/compare/65729,65523,65719

hi dear jonuk76 and thanks so much for the reply

 

yes, i agree with you and it is not clear what are those missing functions from a xeon cpu

 

although the intel xeon e3 2220 is support ddr3 ecc but according to this site i can use non ecc modules as well since my motherboard's chipset support only non ecc ram

 

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1605666-ram-ecc-and-non-ecc-un-buffered-ram-on-xeon-core-i7-cpus

 

i still believe that a xeon cpu is a better choice for multimedia, sound edit, video edit and rendering even if an i3 seems to run faster...

Yes Xeons will work with non-ECC modules.  You aren't limited to an i3. As I said you can get an i5 or an i7 if you want to use a quad core processor.

those xeon's i am interested are all ready four cores while i3 is two cores with hyperthreading

 

i will try to search for more if those xeon's can be installed on my motherboard unless if another member knows few things more

 

thanks my friend
