asus p4p8oo mb

Last response: in CPUs

Wife's computer, w/ ASUS P4P800 Deluxe MB. The 2.6 cpu not working.

MB bios is rev 2.0

Only cpu available at Newegg for socket 478 is the 3.0 Prescott (OEM) w/ 1mb cache.

Can I use the Prescott 3.0, just pop it in, and do no bios flash? I don't want to have to flash the bios. And, since it is OEM w/ no HSF...what to get for HSF....easiest to install...

Thx so much, guys... I need info ASAP, as my wife is on me to get this fixed...

I appreciate where you're coming from, but I don't have time to do swap-out on the MB, etc...

If I get another Northwood 2.6, it's about $25. All she does on the computer is email, web-surf, and some word-games. I'm the one into comp is on my desk... :)
