have you contacted the manufacturer?
there seems to be 2 versions of the board the P5N32-SLI that only supports P4 and Celerons and the P5N32 SE-SLI that supports Core 2 Duos. so you should check the model number on the box and on the board...

Yup, out of luck. Guess I will grab a Asus P5B. It does support Quad Cores at 1333 and has what I need and is cheap. I am DONE with SLI, heh.

Is that what it looked like? Or is it a newer box? No C2D listed there...

Thats due to it not being the SE version of the board which has a slight modification to support the Core 2.
