You're certain this CPU works (you said it was "borrowed" from another machine)?
The v2s also support 1333MHz per Intel's site. Likewise, with the memory removed I don't get a beep code like I do with the Sandy Bridge with the memory removed.
The sandy bridge (v1) was borrowed, and yes, it works. The Ivy Bridge I don't know it works. However, I've tried two of them, so unless I'm really unlucky...
