    Nope, that's a no go. You need a P35, G33 or nForce 680 chipset mobo. You could possibly get it to run (if the board will boot with it), but I think it will only run 1066 x the cpu default multi. You'd have to OC just to get to default clocks.

    yeah thats what I thought.
    The board will do quad core though so you could just get the Q6600 when the price drop happens. or the e6700 since its the slower fsb of 1066.
    Or if you really want that processor, like spqqky said, get something like an asus p5k.

    As above, you'll have to OC to get to stock speeds, but as these boards can often see nearly 500FSB, it's not a big push to go from 266MHz to 333MHz.

    The box of my dead P5B motherboard clearly states that it supports '1333mhz fsb future cpu upgrade'
    What's that all about then?

    Then the P5B-E uses different chipsets to yours/cheaper silicon - this is the specs page for the P5B-E, and it's definately not got out-of-the-box 1333MHz support.

    Ahh right. Mine is the P5B-E Plus and has a black PCB. I'm going to start another thread about all of this 1333mhz support, as i'm a little confused myself.

    thanks guys, I have got the standard version no black pcb. Will get a 6700 or quad core when price drops. Atm my 6400 is still running ok though, can not believe how quick mobo,chipsets and cpu speeds are changing. Gone are the days of overclocking a K6-2 450mhz to 550mhz and feeling like a overclocking god:)

    Looks like you CAN run the new intel cpus afterall with your board. There has just been a new BIOS with the 1333mhz cpu support

    Check out http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-E for the updated cpu support list.
