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.
