  1. Will a CPU from a Asus P5P800-MX motherboard work on an ASRock P45X3 motherboard? I believe the CPU on the Asus board is an Intel LGA 775 and the ASRock board says it takes an Intel LGA 775 CPU but I want to be sure because there could be other things to know about before knowing they will work or not. Any help will be great, Thanks.

    Which CPU are you questioning?
    P45X3 Deluxe - CPU Support List

    The ASRock P45X3 doesn't appear to support CPU's that have a 533MHz Front Side Bus.

    Ok, its a Intel Celeron 326 Prescott 2.53GHz CPU and I looked it up and it has a 533MHz FSB and it did not appear to be on that support list. So I'm guessing it's not gonna work. Maybe I should look for a dual or quad cpu, would be better than a single anyway.
