    I didn't know if thats the reason why they wanted to develop the X48 because the X38 isn't "official" 1600fsb
    im waiting for the 8-core CPUs from intel. or at least the ones that are 1,600fsb 4-core and non-xtreme
    if it is runnable on this machine... thanks

    As far as i know the x38 is just 1333, they have run the new 1600mhz cpus on one as a test but had to OC the mobo. I don't think 8 core is due out until the new design of Intel processors, the neltham. I still think you need the X48 to run it properlly, thou isn't the X48 for DDR3 ram too?

    1,600 FSB won't be available from a non-extreme part (afaik) and 8-core won't arrive outside an extreme part either in Q4, plus it'll be Nehalem only, not LGA775/Penryn.

    Most X38 boards will do 1,600MHz FSB without a stretch - just check the CPU compatibility list on the manufacturer website.

    your Gigabyte X38 DS4 is 1600FSB capatible.

    and as bindi said, 8-core uses new motherboard, so if i were you i won't upgrade until Nehalem mobo comes out

    thanks, i should've guessed since it didn't say anything bout 8-cores..
    guess waiting is the best thing to do, till even after the benchmarks.

    I'm surprised it is compatible.
