What series of 45nm Core2 processors work on DG965xx motherboards?

Is there anything that can be done to make 45nm Core2 Duos work on DG965OT ?

I have recently fitted an E7600 on such a board and surprisingly it boots, but only with a multiplier of 6x

Ruled out SpeedStep by stressing it with wPrime for a while and the clock didn't move from 1600 MHz.

The latest bios seems to identify the processor correctly, but something is going wrong. Apart from the fixed multiplier, CPU temperature is not shown in BIOS.

So, does anyone know if any the 45nm series of Core2s are working on the DG965xx series of motherboards?

I know that list very well. It is old and does not include the 45nm series.

There have been reports that some of these newer processors work well on Intel motherboards based on the 965 chipset. However Intel has yet to release a complete list.
