will the Xeon W3520 work in my X58 motherboard?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi so recently i acquired a cheap X58 motherboard that was tested working for $20 lol. though it has no CPU i want to find a cheap CPU to put in here and call it a day. i dont know what bios version this one is running so i have no idea if i can put an e5640 or an X5650 in here. instead i want to get a cheap Xeon the W3520 costs only $6 shipped on ebay right now and i heard around that the w3520 is identical to a i7 920 does this mean that the w3520 will natively work in an X58 motherboard? once i get it to post i will update the BIOS then replace the CPU with an X5650 if the new bios supports them. i dont want to buy a $40 i7 920 just for flashing the bios... and since i saw how the W3520 is essentially the same as a i7 920 im wondering if it will work. thanks guys.

my motherboard i got was the ASUS P6T

Looks like it will from another thread on this forum.

Apparently any FCLGA1366 processor will work in a normal 1366 slot. Some motherboards may not recognize the chip, but it should still work fine.

im getting the W3520 because it is dirt cheap. $6 for a CPU lolol. also i need a cheap chip so i can flash the BIOS to the latest version then plop an X5650 in there and overclock to around 3.3GHz and call it a day.

FCLGA is the full name for Intel LGA parts. Flip Chip is the way the CPU is connected to it's PCB.
