    C2D sockets are LGA775. To check your motherboard socket, download CPU-Z and see. It would be under package.

    it just not a matter of socket compatibilty, intel usually block their chipsets to prevent ppl from using new cpu's on older mobo's
    look on asus site, too see if latest bios is compatible
