I'm constantly surprised how the desktop x86 market, even a decade on from 775 platform is still being tinkered & hacked with...Actually I believe it should work - If speaking about compatability with 771 chips you could be right about it but the L3360 is a true 775 Xeon, no modding required for it to work.
You will run across issues with doing a mod to use 771's in a 775 board, that fact but I know my REX for example will run it all day long even though it will only work with the 3xxx series Xeons and nothing else with the mod.
As long as the chip is a true 775 chip chances are good it will work.
However there is a caveat - Not all 775 chips work in all 775 boards "As is". Some boards with one BIOS file/later file will run later chips but not older ones, if you flash in an older BIOS file then it works with the older chips but not the newer ones.
Ran into that with my DFI P965-S Dark and had two files for each to flash the BIOS chip with based on what I was wanting to run.
Wonder if this scene, albeit with more modern platforms will still be active a decade or more from now...
