  1. Can my mobo support a Core2Duo Processor?

    It has a LGA775 socket and it can support upto a maximum of 1066Mhz FSB.

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately we do not have crystal balls at our disposal & need more information on your motherboard before answering that question.

    Welcome to TechSpot! :wave:
    The FSB speed and Socket type alone is not sufficient, since there are Pentium 4 LGA775 CPUs that have a 1066MHz FSB which might be what your motherboard supports at most. As Didou said, be more specific. It'd help everyone out if you also filled in your system specs and location in your profile.

    My mobo company says,
    It supports P4, Celeron D and Pentium D CPUs. No mention of C2D CPUs.
    :(

    If you presently have a dual core CPU it is most likely already a Pentium D (which is basically a dual core Pentium 4). Are you sure it's a dual core & not simply a HyperThreading capable single core CPU ?
