Hello, I'm thinking of upgrading my CPU from a core 2 Duo (65W) to a 95W Quad core and I'm not sure if my motherboard can handle it. The board is an ASUS P5N32-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard. Thanks.

According to the ASUS website the only quad core you can use is a Q6600 or Q6700

Just be sure to upgrade your Bios, its likely that you need at least a certain Bios version to support those C2Q chips.

nVidia said that the 680i chipset will not support Yorkfield CPU's. It won't matter what BIOS version you use.

You should check the Asus forums, the Q9450 and 9550 aren't "officially" supported on the P5N32-E, but do work according to several members there.

It can support 95W 65nm LGA775 quad core CPUs according to the CPU support list from the official link of the MB.
