    No, it isn't, so you can't use it!


    That link doesn't work. How about being more polite as well. OP, it doesn't appear that motherboard supports core 2 quads, so cannot use that chip. Had your board supported a Q6600, an X3220 would work.

    Thank you for your help logainofhades , i will have to find out whats the best cpu or most cores i can use in this board , and work from there, thank you guys .
  3. I honestly wouldn't stick any money into such an old machine. You would be better off saving up for a new one. Even an i3 4130 is going to be superior to anything you could possibly put in that board.

    My link may not work directly, but there is still a cpu support list in the Tech support tab. It lists this cpus as the fastest:
    Intel Core™2 Duo 2.4G E6600 1066 4MB 65W Conroe P
    Intel Core™2 Duo 2.66G E6700 1066 4MB 65W Conroe P
    Intel Core™2 Extreme 2.93G X6800 1066 4MB 75W Conroe P
    And as logainofhades says, it is an old platform and the system will not gain much performance with a fast CPU.
  5. Even a Pentium G 3220 could beat those. :lol:
  6. well we all have to start learning with the cheap parts and some system to take to bits , rather an old one that i can make a little better and still sell than break a newer one that cost loads to get parts for ,
    and thanks for the cpu links as the Intel Core™2 Extreme 2.93G X6800 1066 4MB 75W Conroe P will do perfectly for what i want it for .
  7. You can start with low end new parts to learn, and build up as you go along. That is how I did things. Something like this would get you started. Could have went a bit cheaper, but wanted to give a bit of upgrade potential as well without going crazy on price. If your drives in your current rig are SATA, you can reuse those as well, to save a bit more for now.
