    Well, sometimes older BIOS does support unsupported CPU's but sometimes not. So BEST to flash to F12 with a older 775 CPU if you have one. If not the only thing you can do is stick it in there and see if it will post. If not you will need to borrow a older CPU, or buy a older Cheap one to flash the BIOS with
