Processor compatibility- ASUS P5S800-VM

Can anyone tell me whether this motherboard will take a Socket 775 Core 2 Duo 4300 (800MHz FSB) processor? The board specifications state that it has a maximum processor FSB of 800MHz and will support processors to 3.6GHz and beyond, but I'm not sure if this includes dual core. Please help.

G'Day! I'd say no to your question.

The P5S800VM-MX has a PCG (electrical compatability) of 04a/b whereas a Core 2 Duo needs a m/board of PCG 06.

You have to look for a CPU 4/Celeron 256/512/1m cache 800/533 fsb PCG 04a/b

Does dual core processor support Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H mother board

The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)

I hope this helps.

Is the ms 6540 motherboard compatible with the asus p5s800-vm

what u mean compatible? if u mean u want to change your ms 6540 to Asus P5S800-VM, then i tell u it cannot be done.
first thing that u look when to change mainboard is SOCKET type... ms 6540 have socket type 478 and asus p5s800-vm have socket type LGA775. thats mean your old processor cannot be use in asus. socket 478 is older than LGA775.
So if u want to change your mainboard for ASUS P5S800-vm, then u need to change your processor to... about RAM socket and VGA socket, ms 6540 have same type with ASUS P5S800 (DDR400) so u dont need to change your RAM and VGA (if u use external VGA)
hope this useful, regards.

I have an ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard socket LGA775


To answer your question, yes it's possible.

I'm sure you wouldn't like it if I left it at that, so I'll explain a bit more.

It's about as simple as this: The processor you want to install into the motherboard is for an LGA 775 mobo such as yourself. Therefore, it should have no problems when you put it in.

Hope I was of assistance.
