ya, it looks like it won't even post with the conroe.. so you gotta use another 775 cpu..
jimmy, if you're able to return the celeron, that would be great.. i suggest you use the scythe ninja on the celeron so you don't use the stock cooler w/ the stock thermal paste, that way when you return it, it'll look brand new, as though you didn't even use it.. just make sure you clean off the cpu well with alcohol... and make it look brand new.. and don't damage the packaging.. hehe... i assume you have AS5 ?
is this wrong? maybe.. but its their fault for falsly advertising that the mobo supports conroe when it actually doesn't...
