Is the intel pantium d 945 compatible with dell mobo

I have a Dell Deminsion 8400 w/0U7077 mobo and i925x chipset. It came with a p4 550 processor. I want to upgrade to a pd 945. Is the pd compatible with the mobo and chipset?

  1. No the 925 does not support a pentium D chip. You need at least a 945 chipset.

    You can check chipset compatibility at and then click on compatibility then chipsets. Really if you are going to upgrade then you are going to want to at least move up into the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo line of processors but that would require that you upgrade your motherboard and most likely get a new OS since Dells OEM Windows doesnt like to have the board changed.
