There is a good chance they will work, the biggest issue is whether the specific motherboards BIOS has the CPUs microcode in it or not, and therefore recognise or not the CPU.
Thanks, the good chance could be or not ! and I have only 1xx Euros for one shot !
Do you think that the Intel Q965 chipset has the capacity to work with 1333 FSB, even if it started in design with 1066 ?. It's just a matter of BIOS microcode ?.
About the degradation in performance ... any idea ? (30% I have read in ... a Tom's HW Web ... and that's a lot less power).
even if the q965 doesn't go up to 1333, the CPU will scale down, about degradation of performance i couldn't tell you with any certainty. so in does kinda come down to teh microcode..
