A question for you relating to compatibility. Will a Intel Pentium processor 3GHz g2030 work with a Asus P8H61 LX Plus motherboard?

If I wanted to know that, I would look up that motherboard on the Asus site & look for supported processor's

That depends on what BIOS is on it now. If it's the mobo WT posted it needs BIOS 4401 to support that CPU. Which is the 3rd to last BIOS update

Thanks WT for that link. I only asked if I was going to purchase that motherboard. As the gigabyte board in it now was in my main PC and it played up constantly. Changing to an Asus definitely sorted it out as I have no issues apart from the W10 updates
