What do you mean decreased its function? What mobo do you have and how do you know it is/isn't compatible?

If the CPU works fine with the E7200, then it should be a compatible mobo.

You need to give us more info.

the mobo is ecs via p890t chipset only supports upto e6700, when i install e7200 boot says the board does not support 266mhz multiplier cpu and it is going to decrease clock speed and performance...so i am in the middle of deciding either i get e6700 or e7200 but i have 40 of programs install in the hard drive and probably i need to reinstall everything

Hmmm = have you checked (googled) to see if there are any BIOS updates for your mobo? If the socket type is the same then it should work fine with the processor......
