did it ever occur to you to just google it? i know it sounds retarded but you would have your answer you could also look up Z77 mobos from various vendors and check the CPU list that would ahve told you as well.


long story short yes it will work.

voltages have not changed very much since p55 >.> dafuq. Sometimes it isn't the chipset that changes voltages/settings but the mobo manufacturer. For example try using a Gig x58 board and a DFI x58 board and tell me if you notice a difference. :laugh:


by vt-d and t hose, he means the virtualisation technology...

get your fact strait bud buddy.

According to Intel, the following Desktop Boards support Intel VT with Directed I/O:

Chipset Desktop Board
Z77 DZ77GA-70K, DZ77BH-55K, DZ77GA-70K
H77 DH77KC, DH77EB, DH77DF
B75 DB75EN
Q67 DQ67EP; DQ67OW; DQ67SW
Q57 DQ57TM; DQ57TML
Q45 DQ45CB; DQ45EK
Q35 DQ35JO; DQ35MP

and the list go on.

i7-2600 on a asus maximus-iv extrem-z NO GO for VT-D ( mean i can't use directpath to pass HD Controller or Video card Driectly to VM's under esxi.

How interesting since the gene-z utilizing the exact same Z68 chipset does support VT-d. How weird is that it's like the chipset has nothing to do with it. VT-d is activated via the BIOS and there are very few 1155 boards that do support it most of which are available through Intel and Asus. If you want me to be more specific ALL AMD 970 and 990 boards added it with the release of the new processors, but boards as old as the 890 series support it with a BIOS update. Again VT-d has absolutely nothing to do with the chipset so go ahead and remove the foot from your mouth and stop contradicting people with little to no research into the matter.

i will removed the foot from my mouth , when intel / amd and ASUS will start freekin documenting if they support or not those technologies. i ad this extreme-iv motherboard as a gaming machine, i wanted to convert to VM box. how could i know asus would not include the option in the bios?

yes of course research yes easy ! try searching ... there 1 thousand google link , no certainty . i was not about to go and buy 6 motherboard just to try it.

forum use to be a good place to ask about these thing , as not everybody publish their experiment to the web. but NOoOOoOOoOOo do not dare ask anything ,, GOOGLE IT!!!

forums used to be a nice place now you should just close em, cause you can google anyways.

Why is everyone being such a dick to the OP? Damn guys, being a dick to people asking questions isn't what TPU is about. May aswell start hanging out at Hard if you people are going to start acting like that here for no reason.

Yeah I agree. Lately some people here have been very disrespectful and at times even hurtful, I need not mention any names as you know who you are. Maybe it is because the world is all fucked up I do not know. But looking at some of the posts here I wonder why...

GOOGLE is not always the best place to find things when you are confused and have no idea what you are looking at. Some people think they know so much and that you should be just as smart as they are! And when you are not you get treated like shit.
@op. I hope that you get the answers you need. I for one do not even know what you are looking for as I am NOT that smart. :ohwell:

As I know it the CPU takes care of the VT and the MB has nothing to do with it but I could be wrong.

It did. Plenty of documentation available on anything from google, to the motherboard manufacturers site, to random reviews of said boards. A simple google search does pull up all the info he needed I know because I googled it to find his answer.

I remember when intelligent questions were asked on this forum instead of simply googled things. I also know the OP knows better he isn't dumb he has plenty of intelligent posts throughout the forums...



As for the VT-d it is of the I/O ports and requires certain boards to work...It is a BIOS flag as much as a CPU flag.

Virtualization also depend of the BIOS itself, but todays it's not a concern as most modern BIOS support it... Very often the mobo's user guide specifies that.

This was more a concern on laptops as many had hardware VT support but it was diabled in BIOS without the ability to enable

In order to do Client Hyper-V on windows 8 you need SLAT support in full. Other wise you can't use the built in windows hypervisor and you will need to use something like vmware or virtualbox.

did it ever occur to you to just google it? i know it sounds retarded but you would have your answer you could also look up Z77 mobos from various vendors and check the CPU list that would ahve told you as well.


long story short yes it will work.

still i did the work for him really isnt that hard to google it

google the CPU does it have VT-d or w.e if yes now check mobo you want does it support it yes? awesome

as for his original question it really only took a google search lol

Normally im not a douche but seriously the initial links took 5 seconds of googling. The phrase help those that help themselves comes to mind.

the Virtualization question was a valid one as even if a CPU supports it the mobo might not but as you can see in the OP all he was asking was sandy bridge on socket z77

example

Google : z77 support sandy bridge?
scroll down you will find

which is a reviewer testing a 2600k on z77 kinda says it all took less then 10 seconds to find that answer.

I don't mind helping people but it sure would be nice if they actually put in a little effort first. Most of the time people tend to be lazy and expect someone else to do the leg work which as you can guess gets real old real quick when 100s do it on a daily basis.
