When Asus/Nvidia dont support it!

I recently purchased a Q9550 with the idea of popping it into my P5n32-e sli mobo - after all its a socket 775 mobo and a socket 775 CPU - but lo and behold, even though asus' website states "Support Intel® next generation 45nm Multi-core CPU" it doesnt support the Q9550 - at least its not on its supported CPU lists.

Damn you!

I would love to consider if there was any recourse to make Asus/Nvidia pay for an updated board - not because i need the money - but because it would teach Asus/Nvidia to watch what they marketed.

Bastards.

Edit: Haha oh shit - i just saw the thread title. Im not sure what i was thinking. Good for a laugh anyway.

Lazzarus2nd, an nVidia 680i board will not support 45nm quad core CPUs. You need to get a 780 or 790 board. The 680i supports only the dual-cores so they weren't actually lying.
