  1. depends, which p4 do you have?

    if it uses the LGA 775 chipset, then you should be good
    if it uses Socket 423 or 478 you'll need to get a new mobo
  2. Look, what is your mobo? Second, you want to upgrade to Core 2 Duo, right? What is your budget?

    He will go for the 45nm C2Dos, so it depends on the LGA775 chipset he is owning. If it's 9xx, no way he is getting a new CPU.
  4. thanks for the info, bro. but, are there any other ways to know which chipsets or sockets im using without disassembling the processor ??

    Adios amigo:D:D
  11. or cpu-z will tell you everything you need to know
  12. CPU-Z or Speccy will tell you everything you need to know including memory info and manufacturers.

    Yeah i forgot Speccy. Great little app.
  14. hallo my good friends.... i've checked my P4 processor using cpu-z and found out that i'm using socket LGA 775 chipsets... so, is it possible ? coz, as unknown_13 said, "He will go for the 45nm C2Dos, so it depends on the LGA775 chipset he is owning. If it's 9xx, no way he is getting a new CPU." actually, what does he meant by 45nm C2Dos ?? can that thing be seen in cpu-z too ???

    You need to know what chipset you have (915, 945, 975x, P965, P35/45 etc). LGA775 is the socket in which you put the CPU. Download Speccy from the Piriform website.

    45nm is the manufacturing process. 65nm C2Dos are old and they are gone from the market, unless you buy a used one. 45nm C2Dos use less power and exhaust smaller amount of heat than 65nm C2Dos.

    Look under the motherboard section..... this is the CPU.........
  18. opss.. my bad... :P

    how bout this ???
  19. Just looked at the cpu support list for your MB and well..... You're out of luck as even the 65nm core 2 duo's are not compatible. :(

    http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=361&MenuID=69&LanID=2

    P4 672 3.8GHz is the highest cpu this MB supports.


    To get a core 2 duo cpu, you'll have to get a new MB.


    Although getting a new MB, you'll need new ram, graphics, and possibly of a new PSU. Might as well look into the Intel Core I3's or AMD Athlon II x2/3's cpu's :/


    Wish i had better new. :(
  20. oh... is tht so ? guess i'll need to buy a new MB then... my wife's already complaining slow flash games performance with this processor.. :D LOL.. thanks to u all... peace...
  21. Dude a completely new PC is the solution.
  22. yep... indeed... i just need a buyer for this p4, thts all... :lol: :pt1cable:
