You may need to check intel site.
Their you will able to find is the board is compatible or not?
Sorry, there is only a i5 and i7 compatibility reported. But I ready that the P55 will be compatible, without graphics. So I think the board should work with a i3. But if anyone tried this sucessfully, please report. Thanks.
The i3 has built in graphics, you will not be able to use this chip as the DP55WG doesn't have the required connections from the CPU to VGA/DVI connectors on the motherboard. The i3 requires an H55 chipset as far as I know, so the DP55WG is no good with this CPU.
You either to send back the i3 and exchange for an i5 or return the motherboard and get a board that does support the i3.
Really you should check very carefully before purchase.
Now on the DP55WG page the i3 is selcted as compatible with the board. I installed now the hardware, but I am unable to install Windows 7.
I want to use a Rocketraid pci-e adapter, but after installing the driver and a few minutes of installing W7 i get following error: Windows cannot install required files... I feel like 20 years back in DOS times and IRQ conflicts. With the same hardware and a Gigabyte AM3 board I didn't got any problems, and now this...
