I don't think so. His friend has an identical motherboard that the q8400 came from, so there's no reason it shouldn't work. Plus this series of Dell could take any lga775.Probably just incompatible.
Was worth a try. OEMs like to lock down boards like this commonly.
I just bid on a q8400 on ebay. Ill try it in my dell lga775 g43 board.
Yes actually i figured out what was missing in my mobo was chipset required for Q8400 and mine is q35 and the PLL code in his pc is no where to be found on the internet spells something like K8124T23 not sure.I don't think so.

Also, I would research if another processor would work in your board before you just get a processor. Luckily due to the age of these systems just searching for 'MODEL_NO cpu upgrade' will bring you tons of good resources with answers.
That probably is the reason there.chipset
I've been using it with overclock without the tape mod and it works perfectly with SetFsb !
What if that Q8400 would have been Overclocked as well?If you've got the q6600 up to 3ghz using setfsb, I think you're definitely exceeding the performance of the q8400.
Why not? Its new with 45nm tech which produces much less heat.I don't think the q8400 could oc like the q6600.
He can OC with SetFSB tool. I got a 600Mhz overclock from a Q9550 HP workstation using it. It overclocks the bus so CPU and RAM are overclocked together.Very few CPUs benefit much from the tape mod. It can even destroy clocks of some.
So you may never be able to oc the 8400 in that board.
Hers a list of compatible PLLs:How does one do that? I have several Dells I would love to try this on.
