Core 2 Duo and Micro ATX??

  MikeyA 18:24 30 Sep 2007

I am planning a HTPC build and wanting to use a cube case (microATX) and i am wanting it fast and future proof.

However, i cannot find a micro ATX mobo that supports 1333mhz FSB. I am looking for this to utilise a Core 2 Duo processor such as E6550/E6750 at the moment. And also i wish to upgrade to a Quad Core in the future when the prices come down.

Does any1 know where i could find such mobo or have any advise on what i can do?? Much apreciated

Both those mobos look great however i am uncertain about the compatibility still. Both those use intels G33 chipset and it specifically states on the product spec for the Core 2 Duo E6xxx that they will only work with the newer P935 or vNidia 680i

Thats the reason i was unable to find one as thats what i was looking for in the spec...

If it says they are core 2 duo compatable,then that is what they are.
Have you purchased your cpu from the USA?,as these seem to be the only sites that list these boards as far as i can tell.

Sorry MikeyA,you are quite right about the core 2 duo.Still,the only micro boards with these chips that i can find are in the states.
I'll keep looking though.
