    5775C unofficial support on Z87 ?

    Hello, i know that official Broadwell is not supported on Z87 chipset but no one try to put a 5775C on a Z87 board ? Did it works ? Is there limitation ? I read on reviews that it is possible to boot on some Z87 board but the GPU seems to get trouble.

    Thanks for your experience. Have a nice day.

    Unofficial is an understatement.
    It might work but would probably require the Devils Canyon bios update to do so.
    Even though both chipsets are LGA 1150, Broadwell was not intended to run on a Z87 platform.

    If your looking at performance, hands down a 4970K would trounce a 5775C anyways, so I fail to see the benefit.

    Hello, oh it's not for performance it's just by curiosity. Z87/Z97 are the same and last year finally Asus unleashed 4790K support via bios update on Z87 that's why i'would like to know how a 5775C run on Z87. But it's strange it's really hard to find someone who test it for fun on Z87.
