1333 FSB compatibility

by markhagness / July 27, 2007 12:00 PM PDT

I'm getting the 5 new pieces, motherboard, (Asus Commando) FSB 1066
upgradeable to FSB 1333 with bios rev. 1404 flash. Intel Core2 E6750
1333 FSB, graphics card, Corsair 620 watt power supply and ram. I have
a socket 478 board so this is my first LGA 775 build. Buying parts one at a time. Got the powersupply & motherboard. Do I have to buy a
cheapo throw-away cpu to get the bios flashed for 1333 FSB support first or will it post with the E6750 saving me the cost of buying older cpu just to get new cpu to work? God that's a mouthful of nonsense!!!
