Hi Guys, I'm not sure where I can ask, so I choose to put this tread in the CPU section. I am planning to get the mini me barebone system for my brother as a birthday gift. I just want to know if this barebone supports the Prescott core. Apparently, the european version has a bios to update to support prescott, but I am not too sure about the versions that are sold here in US.

Is anyone out there able to answer this question for me???? Thanks........

a prescott inside a mini-barebone will be hard to cool. not advisable IMO. The voltage regulators will likely hold, but its not good for them
