Core 2 won't work unless it's been made in the last 6 months or so. Look it up on newegg and see if it says the Core 2 chips are supported.

It's not about the socket, it's about the BIOS and the board design. there are many boards that did not support C2D, but then were re-designed and then the new versions of the boards would.

I don't know of any board available for retail sale 7 months ago that will run a C2D. I believe July was when the C2D motherboards began to become available.

There are some nForce 4 boards out now that support C2D.....but as they are nForce boards, they are terrible overclockers.....
