Hi, iam from argentina and iam building a server, i have and Intel S3210SHLC Server Board, and i want to buy an Intel Quad Core Q8300 desktop cpu to use with that mobo, but in the procesors tested list at the intel site, the q8300 is not listed like tested, so my question is "IS SOPPORTED?" and if not tested will working fine?
Sorry about my english, and thks.
Officially it's never recommended to use a processor not in the list. Personally I don't see a reason why Q8300 can't run on this server board - similar processors like Q8200, Q9300 and Xeon X3320 are supported. So chance is pretty good that it will work, but since it's not validated by Intel you may not get support from Intel if any issue occurs.
Have you considered Core 2 Quad Q9300 or Xeon X3320?
