As long as the motherboard manufacturer followed Intel's specification when designing the motherboard, it will work with Gulftown CPUs. Intel specifically stated that all LGA1366 motherboards will be compatible with Gulftown CPUs.

Note : for the new member it's more complicate, I do it for correct my name for Marked One ( stalker ) so MarkedOne , I have first the intention to ask to delete MarkOne . My other intention was to reset my post at 0 at the same time. it's seams that I was thinking they was PPD

But finally they will change markone for MarkedOne and erase the new one.. to also comply with the rules 1 account only.

So the Old man will still laugh at it. so Mark Done for real

What???????????

ok back on the topic .. what was the topic...... ya folding.. I buy a 860 instead of a 920 at the time.. I'm folding bigadv with it now.. but my other bigadv that I'm building now is a 920.. the 920 have more affinity with folding than a 860... more easy to OC and no worry if 6 gb work fine on them.

until I see some 860 running on 3 sticks of ram, for me a 860 need 8 gb for bigadv, all true that I don't see why it can't run on 3 sticks , anyway I can't recommend something I don't know

Safe to say that was a little off topic.

On topic, one advantage 860 has over 920 is that it runs cooler which I guess might help in OCing.

Phil I don't talk to you anymore.. you make me spent on 8 gb for nothing , You know the money spent on unnecessary stuff make me not buy more PPD


very good know ...very good... but let be honest, aside of lowering folding cost it's not the best practice... we loose the dual channel

( but did we care of it in our case Phil )

It's what I was thing before. but the memory controller of the 860 is different, and it make it a less good OCer than the 920.. at least for a dummy of Ocing like me .... the 920 came with a price in heat.. my 860 run on air... will not put my 920 on air for fold.. and it's my personal thinking too , I'm really don't like run CPU hot. I stay away from the upper range limit of the spec . chicken may be .

When overclocked, the 860 generally doesn't run cooler than a 920 at the same speed.

3.0 recommend me this foxconn in a similar tread question.. look to me like something solid to for a Folding Rigs. if don't need gizmo an a quality board that can OC this can be a good value , will have take it too if I was not so much after Asus gizmo
