What types of processors will my board take?

I have an Intel 865G motherboard and I would like to know what types of P4's and P4 w/HT it will accept.  When responding please respond with the corresponding Spec Number.  Thanks in advance.

Here's the complete list of the processors that board can accept:

Note that the newer processors (later P-IV's or Celeron-D's) require later BIOS versions.   So if you plan on using the board with one of those you MAY require an older CPU temporarily to flash the BIOS with.

Intel says it will support Pentium-D processors and Pentium 4's with HyperThreading: http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/865g/index.htm

Pentium-D cpus: http://www.intel.com/products/processor/pentium_d/index.htm

I read that much on Intel's site.  However I couldn't find where it told me the exact processors that would work with my board, i.e. with the SPEC number.

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

All Pentium-D's are possible candidates, and the HT versions of the P4 can be identified by the 800 FSB (except for a few 3.066GHz models)

You didn't say whether you have a socket 478 or socket LGA 775 motherboard.

"... All Pentium-D's are possible candidates ..." ==> Obviously this is not true if it's a Socket 478 board.

GTKINC --> to fully answer this question we need the exact make/model of your motherboard.

As an example of what CPU's are PROBABLY supported by an 865G board:

Here's a list of the processors supported by the 865G chipset on Intel's Socket 478 D865GBF board:
http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/bf/bf_proc.htm

Here's a list of the processors supported by the 865G chipset on Intel's Socket 775 D865GSA board:

Yep - I realized the socket info was needed at the end, without thinking about what I had just typed at the beginning, before the revelation (I should have edited it while I had the chance, but I got busy at work).

Sorry for the long delay.  The boards exact model number is 865gbflk

I'm splitting the points and gary's end is higher becuase his last post was dead on.  Thank you both for your time and efforts.
