Will a BOXDP965LTCK motherboard work with a Core 2 Quad 1066 FSB (Q6600)? It's listed as Core 2 compatible but they only say Duo and Extreme, not Quad - will it work anyways?

That board is an Intel desktop motherboard. Intel has a link to the supported CPU's. See intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dp965lt/sb/… for which CPU are supported. If it is not in the list then it will not work. –  Hennes Jan 20 '13 at 22:00

See http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dp965lt/sb/CS-026556.htm?wapkw=dp965lt for which CPU's are supported.

If it is not in the list then it will not work.

If it is in the list and your BIOS version is too old then you want to update the BIOS before changing the CPU.

According to Intel, the P965 chipset will not support the Q6600 Intel P 965 Compatability

processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/… This shows it as compatible. Are you sure? –  Andrew Jan 21 '13 at 17:57
    
ark.intel.com/products/27730/Intel-82P965-Memory-Controller As does this. I think you are mistaken. –  Andrew Jan 21 '13 at 18:01
    
For the record, Dave M's original answer claims it does not support it. –  Andrew Jan 21 '13 at 18:02
