Updating gigabyte k8u 939 bios
Sorry for being a noob, I thought I can upgrade to any 775 socket processor :-( I already sold my previous e7400 processor and planning to upgrade it to q8400 but I saw here that it is in the list of compatible cpu for my asus p5kpl-Am motherboard.
(Guess it's time to sell the E6800 processor on e Bay, as newegg does not exchange or accept returns on opened processor boxes.)I have read on other forums that the best you can do (if you want an Intel processor) for this motherboard would be the following, but I have not tried it yet: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6600 @ 2.4GHz, L2 4MBI am not familiar with other processor brands.

: D Please Check following link to find CPU and Memory Upgrades on ASUS P5LP-LE Motherboard , I saw somany people asking about this motherboard myself it is a great board sorry i can't add any links to this page , the board support Core 2 Duo E6x00Core 2 Duo E4x00Pentium D 9x0 Dual Core Pentium D 8xx Dual Core Pentium 4 6x1 series Celeron D 3xx seriesmemory support Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets Supports PC2 3200 (400 MHz), PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs Thanks Anish The ASUS P5LP-LE motherboard came with the HP Pavillion Media Center TV m8020n Desktop PC that I purchased in 2007.
Regarding processor upgrades, I have discovered it does NOT work with all Core 2 Duo E6x00 processors, even though they specify socket 775 and FSB 1066MHz.
For the Intel sockets and chipsets also: any motherboard that has P55 or H55 in the model name of the board, it can run a Xeon processor, remember that.
I'm running a Xeon X3440 on the P7H55-D EVO and it's running smoothly as can be.
