I have this motherboard http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2456 which is based on the iP65, my question is will an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 which is 1333FSB work with it?

Gigabyte says that the motherboard can support it but Intel's Official specs of the iP65 Chipset say that the iP65 Chipset can only do 1066FSB.

Ideally I could do with a P35 board but since I already have this P65 board (rev3.3) lying around and I am keen on getting the E6750 it would be a waste of cash just to buy a newer motherboard just to buy a much lower end processor.

Simple yes or no will do followed by a reason. :)
