Hi, I have a bunch of DH61HO motherboards and got a bunch of i5-3330 cpus, the thing is that the mobo is telling me that it can only hold a max TDP of 65w and my i5 is 77w, so it shuts down and doesn't let me update the bios.
The question is, if I use another cpu to update the bios, will the new bios accept 77w cpus?
I understand that you are inquiring about the compatibility between your motherboard and the Intel® Core™ i5-3330 Processor.
In regards to your inquire, the Intel(R) Desktop Board DH61HO will support the following processors only:
Using processors that are not listed may not operate properly and may damage the motherboard, the processor and the RAM memory.
The funny thing is, it doesn't support even the i5-3330S.
Could you tell me please why? Out of one detail which is the frequency (diff.: 0,1 Ghz), it is the same CPU as i5-3340S!
