Will a conroe CPU work on any mo/bo that supports 1066MHz FSB?

  1. Hey all,

    Will an Intel Dual Core 2 CPU work on any mo/bo that supports 1066MHz FSB? I know the 775 socket is cool, but there are a lot of good motherboards out there that list the CPUs they support and (being pre-conroe) they don't list Dual Core 2 - yet they still support 1066MHz on the FSB.

    I believe it would work, but just hoping for others' input

    Some will work, some won't. The only way to be sure is if the manufacturer says they officially support it. Conroe requires specific power and voltage systems that not all boards can support.
