Pentium D 945

This question has suggested answer(s)

I need to know if the Pentium D 945 processor is compatible with the dell 0U880P motherboard.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Since this is an Inspiron 537 motherboard with 300w or less power supply I would say no its not compatible.

  • What if I upgrade the power supply to a 700 watt? This was going to be the next step in my upgrades anyway.

    Upgrading the power supply, will not make the Pentium D 945 compatible.

    Note: Prior to installing the processor, update the BIOS to the latest version A03.

  • It has contained and operated with a celeron 450 for 3 years or so, so that list is incomplete
