  1. If the link below is your board you shouldn't have any problems dropping that E5200 in there. Just to be safe update to a current bios before upgrading the CPU.

  2. yes the link u have displayed is my motherboard

    but i used the "Intel® Processors and Boards Compatibility Tool" and found this link below

    http://processormatch.intel.com/COMPDB/SearchResult.aspx?BoardName=DQ965GF

    which show all the processors which are compatable with this board but i could not find the E5200
  3. I would go with one of the CPU's on the compatibility chart. The E5200 may still work but will be unsupported.
  4. well do u think a bios update for the motherboard would fix the problem??

    and would enable it to support the E5200
  5. Unless that compatibility chart is out of date you would gambling, taking a chance.
