    ab9 pro cpu compatibility list

    http://www.abit.com.tw/cpu-support-l...ab9_series.htm

    This appears to be an updated compatibility list for the current range of LGA775 processors. I currently own an ab9_pro MOBO and am looking to u/g the processor. However, I was under the impression that quad-core and fsb1333 were not possible on this board. I am not entirely sure where I got this from, I could have made it up...

    Given that this list is accurate, I am torn between the E6850 and the Q6600. Please could you comfirm that both of these cpus will operate on this board and in particular that the E6850 will run on a 1333fsb and not 1066fsb.

    Cheers.

    I do think all the cpus in this list will work.
    Didn't hear about any problems with quad core and 333 FSB.
    The only new feature of the bios 19 (recently released) is the support of 333 cpus.
    I guess there will not be much room left for overclocking with quad core but it has to work.
    Should definitly be not a problem with dual core as I hit 470MHz FSB stable with my E6300.
    So upgrade your bios to version 19 with your "old" cpu, clear cmos, install new cpu and enjoy!

    they recently released BIOS 19 which adds the 1333mhz FSB to make it compatible with the newer CPU's so u will need to upgrade to use them fella. Im running the new bios with no probs, although not with a 1333fsb CPU

    *and perhaps I should have read the post above which already covers bios 19
