Third party hardware/software
It is very important to note that although the hardware peripherals and software in the lists below were used to test the compatibility of the Intel® Desktop Boards, the focus of the testing was not to qualify the hardware peripherals and software against the board, but to ensure that no obvious motherboard problems existed.
Key points of the test results and listings:
Processors not specifically listed by type and rated speed may have requirements that are not supported by the desktop board's design. Use of unsupported processors may result in improper operation, damage to the desktop board or processor, or reduced product life.
Intel will not provide future software updates to support new operating systems or improve compatibility with third-party devices and software products.
