I'm new here. Ineed your help for my problem.
I have a Acer Veriton M265 motherboard with intel dual core E5400 3.00Ghz processor .
I need to upgrade the processor to a intel core 2 quad processor .
I'm confused with some opinions of my friends in above case.
I need to know which core 2 quad processor will work with better performance and will not cause any damage to my Mobo's chipset.
For ex. I heard that some processors with high cache like 12M will cause to damage mobo's chipset. So i'm bit of afraid to upgrade.
Anyhow, I need to know which core 2quad processor will compatible with my mobo that I mention before.
Thank you.

    Thank you for your effort.

    Please explain me about followings.

    1. The meaning od TDP (95w & 65w ... etc.)

    2. Different between CPU.Q9550/2.83G/2*6M/1333/C1 and CPU.Q9550/2.83G/2*6M/1333/E0

    3. Above processors are 6M or 12M (confused with 2*6M)

    4. Will My mobo support 12M, 6M or 4M cache. In other way, what will be the cache memory limit or highest cache that can use with my mobo.

    5. If I use a processor with 6M or 12M cache, will it be cause to damage the chipset of my mobo

    6. If I use one of the processor listed above, Shall I have to use new PSU with high performance like 400w 450w 500w

    Thanks in advance.
