Ideally, call them and ask. ThAt way you know for sure.

From searching for you, the "S" revision of the 8200 was written in the BX80580Q8200 number ie: BX80580Q8200S

Im fairly certain that I'm set on this.. I think this is good because the 8400 I'm not sure on revisions and junk like that.. It lists E0 as to "test", and C0 as compatible in the compatibility list Trotter gave me.

The 6700 looks like it would work as it's "compatible" all the way across. This revision garbage is giving me fits though as NOTHING anywhere on Newegg or Intel lists what revisions their processors are.

However, this 6700 is a Wolfdale so maybe it won't work? I really don't know still. - Intel Pentium E6700 Wolfdale 3.2GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80571E6700

You need CPUs from the Conroe line, which were the earliest C2D CPUS Intel made. Quads would be Kentsfield. You won't find any of them on NewEgg anymore (other than a single core Celeron... which would work, suprisingly) . Here is a Conroe E6700:
HH80557PH0674M Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6700 2.66GHz 1066MHz 4MB LGA775 CPU, OEM - Intel Core 2 Duo -

The C2Q Q6600 didn't have any revisions using new cores, so it will work, period. Here's one for $176:
Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad 2.4 775 1066MHz 8MB CPU OEM

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

Given the IP35-E's poor support for newer cpu's this option may be your best bet. - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Here is a chart comparing the Athlon II X3 440's performance to the E2180 in various applications.

Thank you for your help everyone.

The Q6600 looks like a beast compared to my 2180, and wouldn't require redoing the whole motherboard and such, so I'm gonna go with that.

Should keep me going for a couple more years before I rebuild.

Yeah it's probably a BIOS issue.
or maybe abit just didn't update the list... ??
P35 is a few years old
