I am running a Biostar P4M890-M7 SE for a main board, and I am also considering upgrading the ram from 2 gigs ddr2 800mghz fsb to 4 gigs of ddr2 1066 fsb ram if I can use this cpu on this mother board.
The reason why I ask is that the cpu sheet on the biostar site -> [codebox]http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/cpu_support.php?S_ID=173 [/codebox] gives me a non existent CPU according to newegg.com.
So pretty much what I would like to know is if this CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz will work with this motherboard Biostar P4M890-M7 SE. And I already know that in order to get the full advantage of this cpu I need to upgrade the ram and I am looking at this OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) (PC2 8500) for memory.
So yes or no? Will it work or will it fry the cpu, I don't want to drop $170 on a cpu and fry it cause the mobo cant run it.
