I have in my older computer an Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 (3,0GHz) Socket 775.
Is there any risk to insert this older CPU into my friends new computer? I mean, are all socket 775 compatible or could there be difference of voltages etc?
Maybe this is a noobish question but I will be grateful for an answer.
(note! the new computer has not been overclocked and no voltages has been changed)
If the motherboard can run a Q8400 then it can run an E6850, it might not work if it was the other way around though. I would try and find out why the original build died first, what was the PSU, graphic card? was the HSF secured? Was there an electrical short?
