I need a replacement motherboard because I am clumsy. :(
My CPU is a Xeon X3480. The Asus P7P55D-E shows support for the I7 880, but does not specifically list the X3480.

Is it safe to assume that the Xeon is also supported, or is there a physical difference that will possibly be unsupported?


Thanks in advance!

I know that Asus P7P55D-E LX and Asus P7P55D-E Pro could work with Xeon CPUs even if not listed on Asus support CPU list.
But I don't think the Asus P7P55D-E will work with the X3450 .
I have not seen those two paired together.

Well, I guess I am going to find out. I did as much research as I could, and it appears that they are essentially the same chip, but the Xeon supports up to 32 GB RAM vs 16 GB for the I7 880.

It will be here Tuesday, so I'll follow up after I get it assembled.

Thanks!
