          Hello LyndonLiu,

           

          what you may want to do is consult with your system builder if they have a BIOS version with explicit support for your processor for you to guarantee the processor must work with your system.

           

          If this is not the case, you may need to first see if the processor is properly working. For this matter, please proceed testing your processor on a known supported motherboard.
