I have done quite a bit of research just now, Q9XXX isn't supported but people have had it be recognized and running stable, however it seems overlocking it is out of the question with my board. Something about the power being crippled =(
How soon till dual cores become phased out? Perhaps I will go for the E8600? I do want this upgrade to last.
