CPU Support - Please help

Hi

I have found this Foxconn mobo : P4M800P7MB-RS2H

http://www.foxconnchannel.com/Product/motherboards/detail_spec.aspx?ID=en-us0000191

According to foxconn it supports up to a Intel D 3.2 Presler cpu

I can't find that cpu in the market.
Do you think I it will support a E6700 ?

What is the best cpu that this mobo will support which is still available ?

Thanks

  1. No it will not support an E6700 ( Core2Duo ). This is a very early LGA 775 board and as it says only supports Pentium 4/Pentium D and Celeron chips. There are no chips still made for this board. It uses VIA chipsets as well......not something I would recommend even when the board was new.

    Why do you want to use this board? If you have an E6700 you can use just about any newer LGA 775 board for it.
  2. Ah ok, thanx. I was thinking of using it as a secondary pc if I could upgrade the cpu on the motherboard. Thanks for the help.
  3. You could look on ebay or somewhere similar.......maybe craigslist. With a Pentium D it would make a decent internet browsing computer but I would not put much money in it at all. Even with a Pentium D it would be painfully slow compared to what you could build for a few hundred dollars.

    Hi

    Something you said confused me.

    I understand that it won't support the E6700.
    My understanding is that the E6700 is a Pentium Dual Core processor and not Core2Duo >

    The E6xx series is Dual Core and E7xx is Core2Duo ?

    Don't want to be confused :-)
  5. Yes and no! lol This can be confusing. The first chip named E6700 is first generation Core2Duo or Conroe. Pentium Dual Core processors do exist including one named E6700.......crazy I know. But the new E6700 is based on a 45nm manufacturing process and is even newer than the older 65nm based Conroe chip. Neither will work on that motherboard.
    Maybe this will help.

    To be specific the board you listed will use Pentium 4 5xx, Pentium 4 6xx, Pentium D 8xx and Pentium D 9xx chips only.
  6. Thank you for the help anort3.
    lol yea never thought they would name to different chips the same.
  7. Glad to help. Intel used to have such an easy naming scheme. Beats me why they had to go and get complicated !
