When there is a change of litho, no compatibility.
Hello everyone, I've got a custom built PC and I'm trying to upgrade from a Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz to a Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5 GHz.
I'm running on a (MSI P6N nvidia Sli Platinum 650i LGA775)
I bought the chip on Ebay, assuming it would work b/c it is an LGA775 and my board supports the Core 2 Quad chipset family.
However I did some checking on MSI's web site, which i should have done before I bought the chip, and The q8300 is not listed. That being said, the q9300 is listed, and they are both Yorkfield processors. Do you think, or know, if the chip I bought, the q8300, is going to be compatible with my Mainboard?
P6N Sli Platinum Motherboard (updated BIOS v. 1.7)
Dual 8800 GTX
4 Gig memory
RAID 0 Configuration hard drives
Current CPU (INTEL Core 2 6600 @2.4 GHz)
Any response will be greatly appreciated, Thanks
