I am currently using a Intel DG41TX motherboard. It throws a beep code for memory error with the Q6600, but boots to the OS fine with a E4400. I have no idea why it is not working.
There's really not enough information here to determine anything. The Q6600 is a higher TDP processor. What is the power supply that you are attempting this with?
730 W Raidmax Powersupply. It provides enough power, as it powered the E4400 with a GTX 660.
What memory are you using?
Hynix 4GB 1333Mhz PC3-10600U 9-10-B0
Try removing two of the DIMMs (second DIMM in each channel) and see if this makes a difference (in theory it shouldn't)...
It's only one DIMM. The Memory is in the DIMM-1 slot.
Try moving it to the other slot...
Do you have the latest available BIOS installed? If not, use the E4400 to install the latest and then try again.
Did you purchase this processor new (in a sealed box) or used?
Same result, this CPU was purchased recently used on Ebay.
You may have a defective processor...
I am going to return it now. Thank you very much for your help.
