i have a mobo that holds my Pentium 4 HT cpu but it was hit by lightning and now i need a new one. ive been searching newegg and when i use the search filter for Pentium 4 HT mobos they only have 3, and they are crappy. but there are over 30 of them labeled as just plain "Pentium 4". my question is, would my P4HT cpu run on a mobo that is labeled as P4?
like this one for instance...

Yes, any pentium 4 motherboard should handle a Pentium 4 with hyper threading. However... you said your motherboard was fried by lightning, what makes you think the processor survived?

honestly, im just assuming its the mobo. when i boot, sometimes it will get to the POST screen and freeze, sometimes it turns on but displays nothing, sometimes it turns on and lets out one long beep. it always does something different so im thinking the CPU is fine since it got to POST. its not a memory or video problem either, i tried good cards and sticks to test those.

Oh, well that does sound like a motherboard problem then. Good luck bringing the old beast back to life.

One last note, I would recommend getting a good motherboard for that. the one you linked to above is near the price range of much better boards from either gigabyte or asus, no reason why you can't get something nice to drop a core 2 into later on. :)

I used to have that board. To be honest, since you're replacing your motherboard, why not upgrade your CPU as well? I went from a 3Ghz P4 631 to an e2200, and the difference is like night and day.
