hmmm, i know that the core 2 duo e6700 will work. same with the c2d e6600.

some people say they have gotten the core 2 quad q6600/6700 and the qx6700 (although the chipset doesnt officially support it)

you can try the core 2 quad q6600 you will need to get a copper heatsink for it too, but if that is too expensive, then i say get the core 2 duo e6700 or the c2d e6600.

I have the same model Dell 745 with CPU D3.0

In my computer when I put new memories,2x2GB not recognize them correctly, only recognize 1x1GB on the two slot!

Anyone know why?
