I currently have the GA-965P-DS3 motherboard and want to upgrade my processor to the Pentium dual-core E6700 (not to be confused with the core 2 duo E6700). I would jsut like to be certain that this processor is compatible with my motherboard. they both fit a LGA 775 socket

I have already looked through gigabytes compatibility lists for this motherboard and found nothing about the Pentium dual-core E6700. However the Pentium dual-core E6500 which seems to be in the same same series, is in fact compatible with this board. Seeing as how this is an older motherboard, i wounder if Gigabyte simply stopped updating the compatibility list for this board before the Pentium dual-core E6700 came out.

Hi skremli1!
No,
there are reasons for incompatibility among some cpus.Sometimes its technological sometimes its business but if it doesnt state then most likely it wont support the cpu.
