Hi guys, I am looking to upgrade my computer from p4 (478mPGA). As currently core i series (INTEL) processors are costilier, I was thinking of using a quad core processor with a H55 (LGA 1156) chipset. Is it possible. I think this should work as core 2 series have 775 pins while LGA 1156 has places for 1156 pins, so it should fit comfortably. What do you say?

It will not work. CPUs have to be matched with motherboards with the same pin count not to mention a motherboard with a supported chipset. Socket 478 has been obsolete for years and even socket 775 is dead now.
LGA 1156 is i5/i3 only.

shishir take my advise: from now on, don't ever trust yourself, EVER!

don't take this the wrong way tho, i'm just a little worried for your safety thats all, who knows what you'll be trying to stick things into other things and thinking it would fit "comfortably". =/

hey thnxxxxx

I was asking this since I read AMD phemom II (AM3) worked with AM2 socket by just removing two pins from the processor (source: wikipedia - states tomshardware did this).
thanxxxx very much :)  :)  :)

Dude I had little knowledge at that time....but did u notice that although AM3 processor don't sit 'comfortably' in AM2...but by chopping off two pins...they work :non:  :bounce:  :pt1cable:  :kaola:
