Has anyone upgraded the processor in an EMachines T3508? If so, what processor did you use? Can a T3508 mobo handle a Pentium D or Pentium 4 processor? I've done all sorts of internet searches, and I haven't been able to find out anything about the mobo's Emachines uses in their computers, and I need to know for a friend who's wants to upgrade his processor. He's wanting to do some light gaming, and the Celeron D356 he currently has just isn't cutting it. Thanks for the help.
Yeah, I knew it was a 775 proc. I'm thinking an 805 would suit him pretty well. Fits in his price range (and would be great to overclock, obviously).
It's not a mainstream board it's a proprietary board so over clocking is most likely out of the picture. My suggestion would be a pentium d 925. But the 805 would be a decent choice even if you can't overclock. just my opinion
I have the same eMachine model, and also trying to upgrade my processor. The 805 seem to be different, 90nm instead of 65nm. Would it work?
I tried the same thing with mine and I got a Intel Pentium D 820 2.8GHz 800MHz 2MB Socket 775 Dual-Core CPU witch the intel site says it can work with but the bios is the problem. Just as above it could not work. So I have to got 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 board that I'm working with. I will use the T3508 to surf and the 4coredual for gaming. ;-)
