    D955XBK Supported Processor?


      As mentioned in the topic I have an old D955XBK motherboard which currently has an older Pentium D 3.0Ghz Processor. I believe it's a 900 series with a FSB of 800Mhz. I know the motherboard supports a FSB of 800Mhz and 1066Mhz and has a LGA775 socket. What I want to know is does my motherboard support Core 2 Duo processors? To be more more specific would it support either the Core 2 Duo E7400 or E7500? They both have a FSB of 1066Mhz and have a LGA775 Socket. If not either one of those processors is there any Core 2 Duo that would work with my motherboard? If not could someone please explain to me exactly why they aren't compatible? I mean that would make no sense whatsoever it's a wtf scenario. As they both have the same socket type and they both have a FSB that supports each other.
