No it won't work. That Quad-Core is incompatible. The processor has to be compatible with the motherboard's chipset, not just match the socket type. Here is your motherboards specifications: RC410-M (Asterope)

According to those specs your motherboard supports these socket 775 processors:
  • Pentium D 900 series Dual Core (Presler)
  • Pentium D 820 (Smithfield, 90nm)
  • Pentium 4 631, 641, 651, 661 (Cedar Mill, 65nm)
  • Pentium 4 630, 640, 650 (Prescott, 90nm)
  • Pentium 4 520J/521, 530J/531, 540J/541, 550J/551 (Prescott, 90nm)
  • Celeron D 352, 356 (Cedar Mill, 65nm)
  • Celeron D 325J/326, 330J/331, 335J/336, 340J/341, 345J/346, 351, 355 (Prescott, 90nm)
I need to know your chipset first to be 100% sure, but this is probably the best processor your board can handle: Intel Pentium D 960

Install PC Wizard (lets check the chipset on your board):
  • Click PC Wizard in my signature
  • Click PC Wizard 2010.1.93 on the top left
  • Save the file to your Desktop
  • Double Click the setup file
  • Follow installation instructions
  • Once installed, open PC Wizard up
  • Click System Summary Posted Image (Should be highlighted by default)
What is listed across from chipset? (i.e. 945)

I'm not that familiar with that chipset, and I did some research and couldn't find much on it. However, the motherboard specifications I gave you clearly state that your motherboard supports Pentium D 900 series Dual Core (Presler). So the one I linked you to is the best one for your board.

Here are the Shopping Results when I googled it. Also keep in mind that the stock heatsink and fan you currently have for the existing processor may not be sufficient for the new more powerful processor (which means more heat generated). So purchasing the processor with it's own heatsink included is recommended.

I hope that helps. :)
