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 BIOS Version:NT94510J.86A.4131.2009.1122.2232 Thank you for your time More about : bios compatible cpu | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove DJDeCiBeL CPUs Master Motherboard Master September 5, 2012 4:41:29 AM According to this http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945g... 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. | Report abuse Burgerkingdom September 5, 2012 5:36:55 AM Aww damm, i was really hoping it work,looks like i gotta find a new mobo but thank you for your quick reply | Report abuse Burgerkingdom September 5, 2012 5:39:47 AM Best answer selected by Burgerkingdom. | Report abuse Best solution DJDeCiBeL CPUs Master Motherboard Master September 5, 2012 5:41:50 AM You're welcome.
