Looks like a mis-match. And the REAL answer shall be from the maker of the machien. Otherwise you can only hope someone tried it in YOUR machine.
Hello, I was recently thinking of getting an intel T9600 2.8GHz mobile cpu for my msi gx600(PM965 CHIPSET.)My current cpu is the intel T8300 2.4ghz. I know that my chipset is only compatible with cpus with 800mhz FSB, and the T9600 has 1066mhz FSB. Everyone says that the motherboard should downscale the FSB to 800mhz, and I have read on intel forms that the T9600 WILL fit and work in a PM965 CHIPSET. Will I notice any decreases in GHz speed because of FSB downscaling, or will the it stay at the default 2.8Ghz?
