But this is for a Dell motherboard so no it will not work the Pentium D is all that it will support.

The OP PMd me and said its for a Dell XPS

Some manufactures might have been able to get a bios to work withe Core 2 conroes but Dell never updated past Pentium Ds it wont even work with the Pentium D 965 extreme edition because the board can only handle an 800mhz FSB.

Yup thats it and in fact the OP said he has a Pentium D 940 in it when those came out it only had support for the old Pentium D 800 smithfields but they must of made a bios update for the presslers at some point.
