please post make and model of the mainboard, rather than the chipset. – Molly7244 Dec 19 '09 at 23:46
The motherboard is Acer FG965M, which I can't find any info about. I am running q6600 on that board though. – xiaodai Dec 20 '09 at 1:07

fraid not, the motherboard only supports FSB 1066 MHz, the Q9400 requires 1333 MHz.

Looks like it is limited to Core 2 Duo, doesn't quite stretch to Core 2 Quad.

Link to specification page

Supports Intel® Core™2 Duo processor, Intel® Pentium® D processor, Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology)◊1, and all other Intel® Pentium processors and Intel® Celeron® processors in the LGA775 socket, with scalability for future processor innovations.
