Solved First 775 build Tags: CPUs Build Product Last response: March 13, 2010 6:05 PM in CPUs Share xaira a b à CPUs March 13, 2010 10:01:59 AM hey guys, believe it or not ive never actually seen a 775 board until i recently bought 1 http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=prodcpu2&prod_no=1833... as you can see, my cpu support list is not that long, i plan to get an e3xxx with it, but im waiting to see if i can get a used 1 for cheaper, i recently scrapped a rig with a p4 540 in it http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=27466 i wish to test it in the board and i just want to know if anything bad can happen if i test it, if anything could fry etc or is intel just like amd where if its not supported, it just wont post? thx 4 all replies More about : 775 build Best solution moody89 a b à CPUs March 13, 2010 10:14:46 AM I would have said not to bother with an LGA775 board since that socket is out of productivity now. No new processors will be made for that socket. But since you have one anyway If that P4 chip is LGA775 then I personally can't see the harm in trying it; I daresay it should work! Obviously though if it isnt 775 then don't even try it Share jsc a c 172 à CPUs March 13, 2010 11:32:53 AM Otherwise, get something like a late model E6300 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and overclock the stuffing out of it. m 0 l Related resources Upgrading existing socket 775 build - CPU first, need opinions - Forum Is This A Good $775 SLI Build?
