|I have a ASUS P5QC. Currently looking to upgrade my CPU to a Quad Core and RAM to DDR3. Get varying specs when searching on exactly what speed my mobo will support. I'm technical enough to build a sys as I built this one about a yr and a half ago, though 'not' technical enough to setup OC correctly other than using the default 10.5 per thats in the bios options. |
Anyways what speed will this mobo support? Do I need to go w/a Quad core 1333 FSB and DDR3 1333 on this mobo? Installed New DDR3 RAM but bios only gives options for 1066, 1600 and 1800 for speeds. 1333 isn't listed, so guesing perhaps it's because the old E6300 Intel CPU is 1066? Ugh sry for being such a 'nooblet' lol but I'm old school when it comes to tech and trying to 'relearn' everything :) Also any suggestions on OC my current cpu which is at 2.8GHZ are greatly appreciated!
TYVM for any help/suggestions!
FYI: Currently looking at Intel Core 2 Quad Q9505 Processor BX80580Q9505 - 2.83GHz, 6MB Cache, 1333MHz FSB, Yorkfield, Quad-Core, Retail, Socket 775 for the CPU.
