The motherboard on my PC (Dell XPS 410) has socket LGA 755 and according to the box on this processor I have, says it requires a motherboard with socket LGA 775.

Will this processor work on the 755 motherboard?


Edit: After reading further result online, I think I may have been fed some mis-information. According to this thread the XPS comes with socket LGA 755 but on other sites it says that it comes with LGA 775...

I question that its actualy a socket 755... most likely it IS LGA 775

As far as I am aware there is no such Intel socket: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Also checking AnandTech shows me this article. Which states that your XPS 410 is a LGA 775 socket mobo.

Check the article that I linked, it should give you an idea of what is supported or not.

That explains it! Thank you. –  Someone Dec 3 '09 at 21:34

in a word, no

the XPS 410 features the 965g chipset and does not support the e8400, which requires 1333 MHz bus speed. the 965g chipset only supports 1066 MHz.

The XPS 410 has a Socket LGA 775 motherboard.

i'd say the Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6700 is the fastest processor this board can support.

Ahhh, would this chip still be usable in the 410? Is it hazardous to run it on a lower bus speed chipset? –  Someone Dec 3 '09 at 21:43
    
according to this thread, the poster upgraded his xps 410 with a q6600: en.community.dell.com/forums/t/19284677.aspx –  Molly7244 Dec 3 '09 at 21:45
