Dear Sirs,

Please can you advise me on the highest performance CPU for an ASRock motherboard '775i65GV'.

Hopefully, it will be at least a Intel Duel Processor :-)

Also, what is the difference with the extreme processors, as it appears their speed (MHz) is lower? Are they better?

Regards, Jonathan

LGA775 mobo's and CPU's have long been discontinued, so you will likely only find a used CPU on the likes of ebay.

- LGA 775 for Intel® Pentium® 4/Celeron® processor
- Support Intel® Dual Core Processors*, including Pentium® D and Extreme Edition
- FSB 800/533/400 MHz
- Supports Hyper-Threading Technology
- Prescott support
- Intel® 04B/04A processors compatible

*Only supported with PCB version R1.04 or higher, and BIOS version P1.90 or higher

Thank you for the reply,

Please could you be a STAR and have a look on e-bay for me and suggest the best one for the Dual Processor and one for the Extreme Processor?

Also, can you let me know what the difference is between them (i.e faster, more efficient, etc...).

Thank you so much, Jonathan

This would be the best processor your Motherboard could possibly support... But... it's kinda expensive. This is slightly less crazy but you may want to consider upgrading soon...

^ Your motherboard will not support these CPUs. The best CPU you can get is a Pentium D series. The motherboard has an Intel 865G chipset and will not even support Core2Duo at all. You can use LGA 775 Pentium 4 5xx and 6xx series as well as Pentium D 8xx and 9xx series CPUs only.

Don't waste money trying to upgrade this board. These chips were not even very good new and they have been obsolete since 2006.

Edit: Extreme Edition processors of this generation had an unlocked multiplier for ease of overclocking. They are still hopelessly outdated. Even the highest end, fastest processor of this generation of chips is slower than a modern ~1.5Ghz netbook processor.

Dear Anort3,

Thanks for the correction.

Could you please have a peek on e-bay and tell me the best I can get, and the difference between the extreme models?

Am I also assuming correct that quad core will not work?

Many Thanks, Jonathan

Can you support me with the above post?

As I stated above the Pentium D models are the best you can get. The Extreme models are only Pentium D chips with an unlocked multiplier for overclocking. Unless you have aftermarket cooling these are useless to you. I don't really have time to browse ebay. Just look for the highest clockspeed Pentium D 8xx or 9xx series chip you can find. Example Pentium D 840 or Pentium D 960 etc.

No there is no quad core CPU compatible with your system.

I will add again upgrading hardware this old is throwing away money. Save that money for a new system. Truthfully a dual core 1.5Ghz Atom netbook processor will run circles around a dual core 3.8Ghz Pentium D.

Moore's law. Computing power doubles every 18 months or so. Pentium D chips were obsolete in 2006.
