This site agrees

Core 2 Duo's may be LGA 775, but that particular board doesn't support them. It's a BIOS (and possibly chipset) related thing. It doesn't have anything to do with the socket. Nothing you can do about it, unfortunately.

Feel free to try it if you wish, but I promise you it won't work.

Don't waste your time, if its not listed your chances of it functioning are about as high as getting hit by lighting, while jumping on a leprechaun, whose having sex with big foot, and all while swimming in a pot of gold, at the end of a rainbow made out of chocolate, in the land of ponies.
