Yeah I'm not sure, the entire list is weird. I'll try giving Gigabyte a call but I'm afraid that if their compatability list is so jacked up, Im afraid to find out how helpful their customer service is but ill give it a shot.
I don't want to return this guy because I'm a college student and I got a killer deal on it, which I won't be able to get on the 8350. Worst case scenario I need a new mobo which isn't a huge deal.
If I throw this guy in and it's not supported can I fry the CPU or will it just not post? I'd like to be sure I need a new mobo before I order one. This mobo has done me well for the past 2 years and you know the saying, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.
Edit: So I also started looking for a new mobo and I came across this.
The interesting thing is that the compatibility list off the gigabyte website is almost identical to that of mine, and based on the comments, there are several people running 8150's on that mobo, so theoretically, I might actually be able to run the 8150 on my mobo. That said, it appears that the north bridge runs a touch hot with the 8150. What do you guys think? Spend an extra penny and get a sturdy mobo?
