P9x79 e ws compatability

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I thought I would ask here and see what everyone thinks I have a new p9x79 e ws from asus and its list of supported chips is kinda slim is there any reason that a intel E5-2689 would not work in it? The chip would be retail not ES thumb.gif I think it should work but want some other peoples opinions before I toss that much money away.
