    Asus P5B Deluxe and Q9400 Processor compatibility


    Hi Everyone,

    I currently use a P5B Deluxe motherboard: http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=bswT66IBSb2rEWNa

    At the moment I have an E6600 Core 2 Duo plugged in (1066 MHz FSB), and my computer has been running very well for a couple of years.

    I am currently looking at upgrading to a Core 2 Quad now that prices have come down due to the release of the i3/i5/i7 processors.

    I particularly like the Q9400 Core 2 Quad and above, such processors have a FSB of 1333MHz, and the ASUS site only lists Beta support for such a high FSB under the CPU Support List.

    If you have experience with the Asus P5B Deluxe and a 1333MHz FSB processor can you please share your experience with me. I am particularly interested in stability.

    Thanks for your time.

    Kind Regards,

    Davo
