      'DIXONSXP' doesn't really tell us much apart from the fact that you probably bought your PC from Dixons, you could either check your BIOS for the name of your motherboard or use a program called CPU-Z to identify it.

        We'd need the full specifications of your motherboard.

              According to Google that's the serial number of a Foxconn RC4107MA-RS2H, you can get the manual for it here:

              http://www.foxconnchannel.com/support/downloads.aspx

              it is a socket 775 motherboard but the manual only says it supports:

              Intel® Pentium® Extreme Edition, Pentium® D ,Pentium® 4, Pentium®
              4 Extreme Edition, Celeron® D processor in an LGA775 package


              ...No mention of Core 2 Duo's I'm afraid, let alone Quad Core's.

                I did a google for that board, and I didn't really get much of anything. You need to find out what socket your mobo is using. Try the CPU-Z program already recommended.

                Alternately you can grab a flashlight and check directly on your mobo for a part number. Then google that part number and the word "specifications."

                Edit: Just read Songwriter's post.

                  Not all 775 boards are compatible with the newest 775 processors ( Core 2 duo's )
                  If it's not listed in the compatible with list, then it's not compatible.

                      I have an Asus P5B deluxe, and I must say.. I love it, great overclocking potential too.
