    Intel D945GTP new processor

    Hello,


    I have an Intel D945GTPLR based computer. The current processor is a Celeron D. I would like to change it to a Pentium D, but since it is not manufactured anymore I am thinking of a Core Duo. The problem is Core Duo is not listed as a compatible processor (http://www.intel.com/support/motherb.../CS-026628.htm). On the other hand I know there are some D945 based motherboards that are compatible with Core Duo. I wrote to Intel but I did not receive any answer so far.


    Thank you.

    More than likely, a pentium D is going to be as high as you can go. the Core 2 Duo's are very finicky about older platforms. the 965 seems to be the lowest board that is fully supported, so if you can't find the Core 2 Duo on that list of compatible processors, chances are it's not compatible. Sorry.
    Core 2 Duo E6600 | eVGA 680i SLI | eVGA 8800 GTX | Soundblaster X-Fi Platinum | Corsair XMS2 2GB PC2-6400 800mhz @ 4-4-4-12 | Western Digital 500GB Caviar HDD | OCZ GameXStream 700-watt PSU | 24" Acer X241W LCD

    The 945 chipset should support core2duo cpus, but make sure to update to the latest bios first.

    Thank you for your answers.

    I have received an answer from Intel. Not compatible, no explanation.

    I found this on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_C..._compatibility

    Thank you.

    It probably has to do with voltage support/regulation.
