    It Should. You may need to make some settings in your bios depending on your CPU, and maybe a voltage change? Although I don't know what the bios changes are for your setup. I'm pretty sure more knowledge of the CPU is needed for which changes.

    Yes 2.1V memory will work fine in P35 boards, the 1.8V you mention is just the standard voltage rating for DDR2 is all, not what the board requires or anything like that.

    Once you get going if you have issues give us your settings and we can help. +0.3 DDR2 voltage in the BIOS is 2.1V
