Not officially but before my QX6800 I had a Q6700 (G0 only). Ran fine at 2.88Ghz (288x10).
Temps aren't an issue here either. I used a water cooling kit once, dropped about 10C but still couldn't get past 3.25. Could be my CPU of course but don't forget that these are extremely old boards with outdated VRM designs.
More W8 testing:
Apparently my Readyboost cache glitched and that was what caused the long startup time. Reformatted the USB stick and setup the cache again, still although the startup time decreased I "feel" it's a little bit longer than with W7. Memory usage is lower though, and I love that.
