    I'm afraid 915 chipset only supported Intel P4 or Celeron D processors if i remember correctly.

    According to the gigabyte website, you cannot upgrade the cpu on this board

    However perhaps a more experienced techspot board member has better ideas

    EDIT: the link I gave, is the link to the 'supported' cpus on the gigabyte website

    only a p4 extreme with a bios update is sugesting this link.i can not update bios with this version because my mobo is an oem version.the latest bios for the oem product is already installed by me.

    intel agrees with you.i was hoping that some informations have been given in the past when some processors were not in the market already or have not been tested yet by them.i have seen on a site someone with the same mobo asking the same thing and they told him that it is possible to change cpu as long as the socket (and the fsb i think)is the same.but just that.i didn't saw further discusson about the issue.
