from what i just saw on the evga site any Q6xxx will work, now to find one ... i can run my bus up to 460 stable on this board, so i'm hoping i can get a chip to do 450x8, but realistically i bet i''ll only be able to do 400x8 unless i get really lucky with the stepping.
Update: i found a Q6600 G0, should be here today or tommorow. i can't wait to see if the Q6600 @ 3 gig or so will beat my e8500 @ 4.05
