Is My Bios compatible with new cpu
Sep 5, 2012, 2:12 AM
Hello everyone. Today I was happy to have gotten my hands on a q6600 quad cpu, i had rushed home and
quickly installed it with new thermal paste but once i had powered on my pc there was only a black screen,
with the fans working, wondered why but i gave removing the mobo's battery for a few minutes a try, the
condition still not had change. But any ways i was wondering if my mobo's bios had something to do with it
Motherboard name: Intel Tappen D945GTP

According to this
it's not compatible at all (none of the Core 2's are).
A Pentium D 960 is the best CPU that is compatible with that board.
