I have a intel D915gav motherboard with a LGA775 socket and it is about 2 years old. Does anybody if I can use a core 2 duo in it? I looked at the intel site about what are the supported processors for this board but it didn´t show C2D, but it may be outdated. I also tried to ask intel´s online help but it gave me a broken link to supported processors. Thanks

Intel 915 series chipsets DO NOT SUPPORT DUAL-CORE CPUS.
You may damage your CPU or the system may not POST.

You can use only Pentium 4 / Celeron D CPUs but not Pentium D / Core 2 Duo CPUs.

I think 965 and 975 are the 2 chipsets to support core duo right now.

These chipsets also support C2D from personal experience:

Intel 945G
VIA P4M890
VIA PT880 Pro

I’m sure there are others also. The issue is as much about the VRM as the chipset.

I'm currently running:

E6600 on a i945G mATX board
E6400 on a P4M800 mATX board (AGP and PC3200 ram)

Yes I know I'm gimping the 6400 but $$$ dictates least expensive routes until more $ is available... :lol:

add to the list the i865 and i875 (in theory, don't know of any current mobo maker using the i875 in a core2 duo platform, but the i865 is being used), and the later revison of the ATI xpress200

No you can't they are completely different sockets and as this thread is over three years old it shall now be laid to rest.
