Default Conroe Mobo Compatibility

Just to let everyone know, you can't use Conroe with your current 775 lga mobos. The Conroe is 65nm chip and it just won't work with the older boards. Heres a little excerpt from Anandtech if anyone wants to check it out.

"First is the fact that while Core 2 Duo is Socket 775, it won't work in almost any existing Socket 775 (Socket T) motherboards. With the move to 65nm, the reduced voltage Conroe was designed for, and the greater need for stable power that Conroe requires, boards had to be redesigned to work with Conroe. "
