Yep, an Q6600 will also work on the board. Either one is much appreciatedThe q6600 is basically the same thing and is dirt cheap on ebay ($5 last time I checked) and can be easily overclocked if need be. Plus, I'm sure someone here might have one that needs a new home.
Looking for an Q6700 (775) processor if anyone has one.
yup. i picked up a slacr for like $15CAN a few years ago, fleabay from a good seller is the way to go.Pic even shows SLACR on the IHS

If you don't plan to overclock and don't have a case starved for air flow the wraith cooler should be just fine. I'll do my best to get measurements of the screw post on the bracket I have.i sure appreciate your time and effort. i had an aftermarket one on the used motherboard i bought and it does not fit AMD wraith coolers because the nuts aren't raised enough. i might just be better off getting a cooler that comes with a backplate though.
where are you? pm me if you dont want it out there...I'm looking for an i5-2400 or 2500, or an i7-2600 if anyone has one floating around. I'd be willing to pay a bit for one.
Also, got some older stuff for grabs. Not sure it will get much interest. You pay shipping.
Dell Vostro 230 Motherboard - Has either an E8300 or E8400, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and a generic blow-down cooler. Comes with I/O Shield.
HP M2N68-LA *Experimental* - Has an Athlon 64 x2 5600+, 4 GB of DDR2 RAM and a generic blow-down cooler. Comes with I/O Shield. *Experimental* part because I soldered on two additional RAM slots to increase the maximum amount of memory the motherboard can hold. The two additional memory slots work, but are not correctly reported in the BIOS. Windows and Linux report and use all of the available memory in those slots though. I've installed 8 GB in the board as a test (4 x 2 GB) and it was all reported in both Windows and Linux.

Also have some computers. I would rather not ship these, because shipping is prohibitively expensive and time consuming and I'm on the road a lot. If you're in Central Texas, you can either come pick them up, or I can meet you somewhere close. If you want these shipped, be prepared to pay quite a bit and it will take awhile. No international shipping.
Optiplex 745 DT - Has an E6600, 4 GB of DDR2 RAM and 320 GB HD with Linux. It has a few extras over a normal 745, namely the rare and hard to find PCIe+PCI full height card cage that allows installation of full height cards. Also has the Serial+PS/2 riser and the "office building" heatpipe cooler. This cooler allows installation of higher power CPUs like the Q6600. Also of note, the red SATA port on the motherboard is non-functional. I installed it to see if the chipset would see it, but it didn't work and I was too lazy to remove it.

"Not-A-Vostro-230" - Vostro 230 case with a Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2V, i3-530, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 500 GB HDD with Windows 10. I'd like $20 for this machine on top of shipping because I had to buy a power supply for it.

Gateway Essential 667 - PIII 667, 320 MB PC-100 RAM and 82 GB HD with Windows 98SE. Saved this machine from going to the landfill. I did a lot of work on the machine to get it back to working order. It had rodent damage and a bad power supply, all of which were repaired. The only fault remaining is the top PCI slot has corroded pins and is non-functional. There are still three remaining PCI slots that work.
