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.
