at the end of the line that says "specification" you will see (ES) which means Engineering Sample. Darkstar, that's an excellent point. I didn't know that's what ES meant. And yes, the reason I'm getting it is because I have a relative who works at the company. So perhaps it is a 775 after all?

Re: I'm inheriting a new processor, need advice!

InspectahACE, yeah this is kind of a weird case (didn't mean to make that rhyme;) The lack of info is very frustrating. If it's a 775 then I'm in business.

Re: I'm inheriting a new processor, need advice!

Alright, I'm a little confused now.

I've heard conflicting reports on what socket this thing is. It's between a 771 or 775. The attached screenshot says its a 775, but the following story says its a 771.

Re: I'm inheriting a new processor, need advice!

Again, thanks again for the quick responses. Given that this is a good CPU, I'll spend between 1k to 1.5k for everything.

Re: I'm inheriting a new processor, need advice!

Apoptosis, thank you very much for the incredibly informative response. I truly appreciate it.

Do you have any recommendations on which motherboard, ram, and powersupply to get for this thing? I do want to buy good stuff since this is a good CPU.

Many thanks!
