CPU and Motherboard compatibility Tags: CPUs Intel Motherboards Product Last response: November 16, 2010 5:46 AM in CPUs Share thepunisher187 November 16, 2010 5:06:36 AM Hello, I was wondering if my motherboard could support a processor I plan on buying, which is an intel core 2 duo E6600 2.4ghz. Here are my current specs: Manufacturer: Acer Model: E946GZ Chipset: Intel 946PL/GZ Southbridge: Intel 82801GB (ICH7/R) LPCIO: ITE IT8718 Package: Socket 775 LGA BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG More about : cpu motherboard compatibility Herr_Koos a b à CPUs a b V Motherboard November 16, 2010 5:38:00 AM Acer don't make mobo's any more, hence there isn't even a support list to reference. However, since yours is a Pentium 4 board, I think it's unlikely that it will support Core 2 CPU's. m 0 l thepunisher187 November 16, 2010 5:46:34 AM I am currently working with an intel core 2 duo E4400, and this website http://www.cp65.com/news/IntelCore2CompareSpecs_2007083... suggests that I have the minimum chipset requirement to run an E6600, but I am still unsure. Any timely feedback is highly appreciated since the processor I want is on sale but only two left are in stock at that price. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
