I have an E8600 on a GA-EP45-UD3R board...will that combo run 8.1 (32 or 64)?

Jump to solution

I have conflicting reports of an E8600 (775 pin) CPU running ok on Windows 8.1. I am unable to find the answers I need from Microsoft nor Gigabyte sites. The mobo uses chip set P45. I am trying to continue using this old box and will do a clean install. Particularly, does this CPU support PAE, NX, and SSE2...a requirement for 8.1.

Hello lfh003,

You might refer to http://ark.intel.com/products/35605 this to get detail information of Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 processor. This processor, E8600, does support PAE, NX and SSE2...everything (but nested paging) which Windows 8.1 requires! It is an eligible processor for Windows 8.1.

Best Regards,

Aaron Janagewen
