resolved to the customer's satisfaction
The Intel DP45SG motherboard doesn't work with the Q9550 Quad CPU. The CPU heat-sink cannot be installed because it doesn't fit. The processor sits 8mm off the motherboard surface and the heat-sink has a 5mm gap from the mounts, so the difference is a whopping 3mm off or more than 1/8 inch. So to install the heat-sink you practically push the bloody CPU through the motherboard and the motherboard is cupped and bent.
What is even funnier is that they bundle this crap together!
Thank you Intel Support for pretending this problem doesn't exist and treating me like a bloody idiot.
I have lost my appetite for Intel, this is the second Intel motherboard disaster in a row and I have enough!
Intel are experts in functional obsolescence and make sure nothing works beyond their documented specifications. So if they advertise Windows 2003 support and the Server blue-screens with Windows 2003 sp1, they tell you tough luck, we didn't say it works with SP1 and they never update their system drives or replace the product!
Going to try AMD!
