Are core2quads safe from IME?

Hi all. I just wanted to stop by and ask about getting around Intel’s management engine with a Core2Quad. I want to buy an old Q9650 off of ebay. Apparently that was the best socket 775 quad core, unless you went with those $1,100 “Extreme” CPU’s. Would this processor with the Asus Maximus motherboard be safe from Intel’s evil management engine?

If not, what’s the fastest old cpu that you’d recommend? And what’s the best motherboard to go with it? (iirc the management engine chip is actually integrated into the southbridge chip? can’t remember)
