Not according to MSI's page. Ref: http://us.msi.com/product/mb/P67A...CPUSupport
I figured the one listed was the minimum and any other would work. Still the MB is giving me a GPU error, not CPU; although it seems it could be related to the CPU's integrated graphics. If the BIOS didn't support this CPU, wouldn't I get a CPU failure beep code instead? What should I do then if I can't flash the Motherboard when the i3 doesn't work?

I really don't want to, but I could put the 2500k back in and it might work so I can downgrade. I'm worried though that there is a chance that the problem may be something else though, like a bent pin. I don't have the money to replace the 2500k right now if something were to go wrong with it.
