Re: Would Pentium D 930 work on this motherbaord?
Yes, you can do the upgrade. About how worthy it is, it depends on your daily application. If you're using application that can utilize the upgrade than it surely worth. But if you feel like your current processor has more than enough power, your best bet is not to upgrade.

Yes. Any Intel Pentium 4 processor will fit fine. That said A P4 processor is fast, but the Pentium D is much faster. The D stands for Dual Core. This means that they have two on die processor cores instead of just one, as the Pentium 4 does. Two processors also makes it better for "demanding" applications.
The Pentium D is better if you have a motherboard that will utilize the technology. As stated the Pentium D is Duel core. This is Intel's way of creating the closest environment of a true duel processor. The HT is for Hyper-Threading which acts like a zipper and allows several applications to process at the same time. The Pentium D will really make a difference when used with the new 64 bit operating system.
However, HT (Hyper-threading) P4, does have emulated Dual Core processing. In short, the processor makes the computer think its runing a dual core. The Pentium 4 also has a couple different levels, so if you are trying to make a comparison, make sure that you look carefully.
Although neither can match the power of an Athalon or an AMD x2 processor. If you are buying, get something with 64 bit processing. WAY faster and better for games and high graphic systems.
Yes, if you overclock you computer, I believe if you enter your bios of the motherboard, asus already has a pre overclock options. That is if your using a p4 2.8 ghz processor.
You can not put a 3ghz processor and overclock it to a higher fsb, your motherboard will literally smoke up but, most motherboards probably can easily detect a non compatible CPU.
If your manual states a max of 2.2GHZ then, take it as that, when your board was made the bios and bus speeds would be set at the maximum to run a 2.2GHZ, not a 3GHZ, also the heat sink and fan may not be enough to cool the processor.
The only way that a 3GHZ would run was if you updated the bios and personally i would not recommend it.
You would be better advised updating the board and processor as a package ot fitting more memory if the pc is not used for gaming or high end video editing.
