Default x5650 + x58

Anyone here currently running a westmere on an x58 (non classified) system? Did you have any trouble with the board recognizing it AND were you able to OC successfully?

I got my hands on one, and want to see if it will work before I rip the heatsink and proc out and toss this on in.

Well installed it this evening and even though the EVGA tech assured me it would work using latest BIOS and my revision of board; I am stuck at the FF code and the board won't go past that.

Sucks as though it looks like this CPU will go to waste.

And I was "assured" it would work both on the phone and via email, hopefully I can work out an advanced shipment of one that will work.
