I could be wrong but I don't see Core 2 Quad on the list, so I don't think it's supported. I did see it supports 1066MHz FSB's so this could work but i'll let the more experienced posters be the judge of that. This is the best quad that your motherboard could support: http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLACQ

Thanks,
