    I dont see why that's not possible, as intel chips infest the p5k series boards now, and nvidia is getting no action here.

    You mean 3 mb of cache?cause it says 12 mb so i am guessing 4 core 3 mb for each?or 3 cores and 4 mb each?

    Obviously the ones with Intel's newest chipset: the P35.

    The mobo you linked to uses the older nForce 650i chipset, and will not support Intel's new 45nm Penryn processors.

    The whole Asus P5K line of products uses the new Intel P35 chipset, they support the Penryn.

    Someone reviewed the penryns and they weren't that much of a big leap from the C2Ds.

    but at least they will lower the prices on the older processors.

    well maybe the c2d versions is not a big leap but the quad version def will be,i will be switching out my q6600 for the 3.0 12 mb l2 cache 1333 fsb version of the penryn.
