You wrote this earlier ( and the Crucial scan confirms the motherboard )ASRock N68C-S UCC with DDR2 1066 DDR3 1600 Dual channel written next to it.
They are not compatible.DDR2 so im guessing that wont be usable with this m/board
I doubt that you would see much of a difference.will it be more efficient and cooling the i5 rather than the stock cooler
If you select a CPU with 1155 connections then the m/board that you select to go with it must also have an 1155 socketdoes this still mean that i have to have a m/board with a 1150 socket?
We have been in the process of changing the board servers and some posts have gone missing.the post that i posted on the 3rd of October doesn't seem to have a link for me anymore?
