Motherboard ?

I'm currently using an Asus P5LP-LE motherboard with a Pentium D 930 (3GHZ) and haven't had any luck on the HP forum with regards to finding out specifically what newer processor/s would run on my current motherboard.

According to the HP product info regarding my motherboard it doesn't show/list my current processor specifically. It shows the following info:

Clearly it shows only the 800 series up to 3.2 Ghz but I'm currently running a 930 series (3Ghz). It also shows supported system buses of 533mhz, 800mhz and 1066mhz.

Does anybody know how far up the food chain this board can go with regards to processor upgrade since HP's site doesn't seem to be accurate.

  1. Her is another HP with the same Motherboard it supports core 2 duo http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00864946&lc=en&cc=us
  2. Your motherboard has the 945p chipset; it won't work with any core2 duos. I suggest against an upgrade. You won't notice enough difference for the $$ spent. If you want to use a core2 duo cpu, checkout ebay for the "boston" hp motherboard, which I used to own. It will work with most core2 duos, using ddr2 pc 5300 or pc6400.
  3. Apparantly, your hp system may use more than one motherboard. Use cpuid or everest to id your motherboard chipset. If you have the older 945p and want to change boards, ebay is your only affordable source, unless you get lucky and find one on craigslist.
  4. CPUID is showing chipset as:

    Emery i945P 82801GB (ICH7/R)
