    No, Here they say that it's only compatible for P4s and Celeron Ds.

    It should work with any of the P4 Prescotts, though. What processor do yiu currently have?

    Not sure I understand your question....
    All of the newer prescotts use the LGA775 socket, but the Pentiums D's use a different style of LGA775 socket. As far as I know they are not interchangeable.
