    Yes that is fine. It is the same procssor model so it will work in the working motherboard.
  2. Hi Guys,

    Thank you for your responses I really appreciate the help.

    Just one more thing, so it would be safe to test even if the processor is faulty in anyway without damaging my motherboard?

    My reason being I currently have a E8400 processor on this board and once tested the Q6600 processor I would like to build a second PC for my sister to use for school and to play around with. I just need to make sure that my motherboard is safe so I wouldn't have to go buy a new board again. Thank You guys...!!!
  3. How do you know the CPU is faulty?
  4. Hi,

    Sorry for the late response, I honestly do not know if the CPU
    is faulty & my question is IF it is faulty do I run the risk of losing
    my current motherboard by testing the CPU...????

    I just need to make sure before I go ahead with testing this
    CPU on my motherboard.

    Thank You RDS1220 I really appreciate your help with this.
  5. It should be fine. If there is really something wrong with the CPU it more than likely flat out won't work. If it doesn't turn on at all than you know there is something wrong with the CPU.
