Hi Paulr2006,

It will depend on the form factor. In the tech guide, it lists validated CPUs according to form factor. Check that first. The best CPU in any system but the USFF is an Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q9650/3.00GHz, 12M, 1333FSB.

Thanks for the reply, It's the small form factor desktop. Will check out the list thanks. So the quad will run on this Motherboard? Thanks, Paul.
