Is Intel e8500 core 2 duo processor compatible with Dell inspiron 530?

I have been using a Dell inspiron 530 and it is having 0RY007 motherboard and p35/g33/b31 chipset and is having a Intel Pentium E2140, so now I am willing to upgrade the processor and I am looking forward to get Intel e8500 core 2 duo processor but then I am not sure of it is supported by the Dell inspiron 530 or not, I have heard that if I get a processor that is not supported by the laptop then I will run in to further issues so to be at the safer side I just wanted to know if it is supported or not, so is there anyone who has an idea about it and can help me out in clearing my doubt??

Re: Is Intel e8500 core 2 duo processor compatible with Dell inspiron 530?

Even I am using Dell inspiron 530 and I have recently upgraded to E8400 processor and everything is working fine and I am not having any issues so if you want then you can consider the same as well, I just wanted to add that 0RY007 motherboard supports Core 2 Duo processors as well, I have found one of my friend using Wolfdale Core 2 Duo, E8500, 3.16GHz, 6MB, 1333FSB, 65W, processor will with his Inspiron 530 and he is not having any issues as well. I also wanted to add before installing the processor make sure that you are checking out the BIOS Version and getting the one that is supported for the new Intel CPU's, since the above user has mentioned that it to be supporting Core 2 Quad processors, I will like to inform you that the 0RY007 motherboard does not support Core 2 Quad processors and you will have to get some other motherboard and even a 350w PSU.

In that case I will like to inform you that I have already mentioned the cpu that are supported by the Dell inspiron 530 but then I can help you in narrowing down your choices, I personally think that an upgrade to the one amongst the below ones will be a better choice, I can?t say which one will be the best in performance as it depends on the Bios version and the Motherboard that you might be having in your case probably G33M02.
Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 (1.8 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 (2.0 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 (1.86 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 (2.13 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 (2.33 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 (2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 (2.66 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 (2.80 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
Wolfdale Core 2 Duo, E8400, 3.0GHz, 6MB, 1333FSB, 65W, E0
Wolfdale Core 2 Duo, E8500, 3.16GHz, 6MB, 1333FSB, 65W, C0
Wolfdale Core 2 Duo E8500 (3.16 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)
Wolfdale Dual Core Kit, E8600, 3.33GHz, 6MB, 1333FSB, 65W, E0
