Will an Intel Xeon E3-1240 v2 work with my FoxConn 2ABF motherboard? (Socket 1155, H61 chipset)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting to upgrade to an i7-3770 for a while now, but I came across an auction for a Xeon E3-1240 v2 instead, and since it was 50 dollars cheaper for almost the same specs, I went for it. But now, searching online, I'm getting mixed signals as to if this CPU will work with my motherboard. This isn't a custom built PC, mainly a regular OEM desktop I've been upgrading for the fun of it.

The other threads I've seen claim that the Xeon CPU SHOULD work with the H61 chipset, but it depends on the BIOS support of the motherboard. Can anyone help me verify whether or not I'm out of luck with my motherboard? It's a FoxConn 2ABF running AMI BIOS v. 8.14.

Literally everything else about my system is compatible with the CPU.

The Xeon actually did work with my motherboard, and it supported my RAM and all my other goodies too.
