let us know what happens.

that chart was for a old sandy xeon and you miss one of the reasons why I do not want a 3570 , I loath intergrated graphics LOL smile.gif
also the 3570 has less L3 Cache 6mb vs 8mb on the xeon , and finally no hyperthreading on the I5 3570 where the xeons do support HT

Lets look at one more thing , Price the 3570k is $240 bucks vs The xeon 280 so for 40 bucks more I get the proformance of a I7 3770 for less cash . Kinda hard to sell a 3570K whould You not agree ? biggrin.gif

but you will need to upgrade to the larest bios to fully support a xeon , I already flashed mine using a I3 sandy
here is a offical list of supported cpus

hmmmm,,think i wait to see what your thoughts are of the xeon...

the 3d power in the gigabyte bios is something new..never saw that before....

my cat chewed a wire loose on my 880ga board, sent it in and told them what happen,,,they fixed it at no charge..so i am very happy with their repair facility, even after telling them i had a hungry cat
