Core 2 Duo-Ready mobo

Postby DimWit Kid » Fri, 23 Feb 2007 1:22 am

The question is a bit technical, so appreciate if some enthusiasts can help me...
I have a P5LD2, socket 775 mobo (Chipset 945G). Currently using Pentium D, 3.0 Ghz.
Question is, are all Lg775 mobo compatible to take Core2Duo processors? Or does it take a different mobo altogether from the one for Pentium D processors?

Thanks.

Asus P5LD2 is probably the best on the market for multitasking.
All socket 775 are core2duo compatible I believe!

Check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Takes these processors:Processors Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.46 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 2.67 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 2.93 GHz)

There's a difference.
I'd need to check the specs .who makes the MB looking at the number would suggest Asus.

I think the Core 2 duo's have a different voltage spec than the Pent D's and thats the deciding factor. ( aside from the Ghz of course)

According to the comparison chart here > http://zeus.asus.com/hq/products1.aspx? ... =txt/core2

Your mb should work ( second from the bottom of the chart)

I must admit the Intel dual core and core 2 ( duo) is very confusing sometimes. I read an article that suggested Intel will avoid using such similar names in the future.

Good luck
