Question about Intel Motherboard
CPU Support List
Intel Core2 Duo - Model Q9400
1) Yorkfield Core technology
2) Built on the 45nm architecture
3) Natively uses a 1333MegaHertz Front Side Bus, (1333MHz FSB)
4) BIOS version -> F14
Uses the Intel P965 motherboard chipset,
Hmmm, states support for -> 65nm architecture processors
The Q9400 is based on the 45nm architecture.
I'm guessing the F14 BIOS version will allow support.
The voltage range of a Q9400 is .085 to 1.3625 Volts (DC)
What is the 'old' processor model number, and do you know the voltage range?
Did you get the Q9400 from a reputable source?
Have you been following Anti-Static Precautions?
Using CPU-Z from CPUID.com, and the old processor installed, is F14 reputed to be the BIOS version that is installed? Just want to make sure.
Sometimes it takes 3 to 4 times of a 'Hard Start', for BIOS to recognize a new Processor.
(Computer turned all the way off, not Restart. WAIT 1 minute, turn back on. Hard Start )
What is the frequency rate ('Speed') of the DDR2 Sdram ram memory, you have installed?

(Bet you're going through some Thermal Paste, huh?)
