Will a Q6600 work on an Intel D975XBX (Bad Axe 1)?

25 April 2007 - 02:43 PM

I've been searching around and it looks like this board may support the Q6600, but not officially. I think there could be some power issues, but it's unclear to me. I have a 305 rev board.

Early reviews of the quad core used the BX rather than the BX2, but I'm not sure if these boards had been modded to make them work.

As the Q6600 has dropped quite a bit, I'd like to consider it as I have a Bad Axe 1, but don't want to have to fork out for a new BX2 as this would impact the cost/performance gain.

I do quite a bit of multi-threaded, math intensive work, so I can make use of the extra cores. If I can't get a definate answer, I'll just buy a high end core 2 duo instead.

FS: P5LD2-VM (V2.0 Green) + case

Hello All,

I what to sell this MB and Case as I want a system with more memory. I've already brought a bad axe to replace it.

The MB was an open box return, it is missing the I/O shield but everything works fine. This motherboard is proving difficult to find, hence the reason I went for an openbox. Got the system fully working with 10.4.9 with a nVidia 7600GT and 4 GB of memory and can throw in a image of the install if needed.

The case is an Lian-Li PC-V300 in Black. It's a uATX, hence the neeed to sell as the bad axe is std ATX

Case and MB $160 + shipping.

I live near Portland, Oregon and would prefer to sell locally.

Cheers,

Gimboid
