Looking into doing a xeon build.
Need info about this cpu and if it can be compatible with X99 even though it says its for X79.

Hi,

according to the QVL list of CPU's for the motherboard you show in the picture, the answer is no, it is not compatible.

Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
