    People, anyone of you guys knows if the Intel 925P chipset might be compatible or support the Core 2 Duo, maybe after a BIOS update?
    I know for sure that it supports it physically
    Please help! :confused:

    Not only that, but for the 975 chipsets, the motherboard must support Conroe. There are quite a few 975 chipset boards that do not support Conroe at all, and a few that can be bios updated to support it.

    No, there are some 945 and 955 Chipsets that support Conroe too.

    No, not 925. The reason why most 945 and 955 Chipsets didn't support Core 2 Duo was because they didn't have the voltage options for it, same with the first 975's either, but w/ a BIOS update or newer revisions, it was solved. But 925 doesn't support it at all.

    This is 100% untrue. You need to provide links if you are going to say things like this. There are NO 945/955 chipsets that suppoer Core 2 Duo Conroes. None.
