    FSB 1333 CPU in a 1066 q965 chipset mobo


      Even if Intel compatibility tables do not show "mixed" FSB/CPU options ... !!!

      What results can I have upgrading with a Core 2 or Quad 1333 FSB CPU ??? (Reason to ask: Old FSB 1066 CPU's out of sale or price).

      Will the FSB 1333 CPU work at 1066 ok... just a litle bit slower in FSB transfer rate actions ? or a lot slower for everithing ?

      For example with a "new" Intel® Procesador Core™ 2 Duo E8400 (Boxed, FC-LGA4, "Wolfdale").

      Or a Intel® Procesador Core™ 2 Quad Q9400 (Boxed, FC-LGA4, "Yorkfield").

      Will ir work for example with a Intel® procesador Pentium® E6500 (Boxed, FC-LGA4, "Wolfdale-3M") 1066 FSB low dual core technology ? (not vPro comliant)

      I have a ACER Veriton 7900Pro PC with 965 express chipset (FQ965M Mobo), 1066 FSB and vPro compliant, BIOS R03-A4.

      I found a E6750 CPU (FSB 1333) inserted ... not working now for overheat resons (fan stoped !).
