I own an old version of ASUS motherboard. P4S533-MX
And i bought a new Celeron D 310 to make a adidtional file server at home.
And i was wondering if there is a Compatibility issue with the motherboard and a new 90nm CPU.
even thou the FSB s supported by the motherboard but the computer won't start with symptoms like there is no CPU inserted.
A different kind of question then:
when compering P4 2.4Ghz (Northwood) i have i've notices that the Celeron 310 i bought has L1 cashe of 16 KB comparing to the P4 that has only 8 KB
Is that somehow considered a performance increase?
It is garbage, i also got an OEM which looks like hell as well.
I thought to revive an old MB and make something usefull of it.
I wasn't looking for a performance when purchasing but something to fill in a 478 socket :-)
Now i have to get rid of it.
Overclocking will be a waste of time actually, improving Celeron (just the word sounds funnny)
