asus p4p8oo mb Tags: CPUs Asus BIOS Product Last response: October 13, 2008 6:18 PM in CPUs Share bbtennis1 October 13, 2008 5:28:36 PM 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...
