LGA 775 - LGA 771 Compatibility

I have a Dual-Core Intel Xeon 3040 Conroe processor. Original specs read as such:

Model: BX805573040
Speed: 1.86GHz
FSB: 1066MHz

Would this processor be compatible with an LGA 771 board?

A socket 775 cpu will NOT work in a socket 771 motherboard.

Yes...you should have no problems.

It is a good idea to perform a BIOS upgrade before installing this processor however.

I was reading over the specifications further and I found that my particular processor is a socket 775, would this still be compatible?

Thanks so much.
