I am replacing a bad motherboard with this one: FOXCONN 865M06-GV-6LS INTEL P4 511 CPU COMBO KIT (Pentium 4 511 2.8Ghz 533Fsb Sl7e2).
This Motherboard has two memory slots. My existing memory is a 1GB Crucial 184 Pin (PC3200) DDR DIMM. I want to re-use the memory module on the new FOXCONN.
I am here to ask at what MHz (FSB speed) the Motherboard needs to be set at. PLEASE EXPLAIN IN DETAIL ( and how the FSB relates to the Memory Bus Speed ) THANKS!
Please excuse me for being a novice, (been a while since I built a system) but how do I check to see what the FSB speed is on the MB? (I assume this is done in the set-up menus by hitting the "Del" key or "Tab" key during initial boot-up).
AND... will I "need to set these" in the set-up menu (BIOS) at the first boot or will the BIOS actually run without these being set 1st?
As you can see the Intel CPU is a 533FSB CPU. Here some more details....
Here are the short specs on the new MB: FOXCONN 865M06-GV-6LS with Intel Pentium 4 511 2.8Ghz 533Fsb Sl7e2
Intel Pentium® 4 processors, Socket 478
- FSB 800 / 533MHz
- Dual Channel 400 / 333MHz DDR DRAM
- Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 VGA
- Serial ATA x 2
- 5.1 channel Audio, S/PDIF-out interface (Realtek)
- 10 / 100Mbps LAN (Realtek)
- 8 USB 2.0 ports
Question... If I am buying this as a MB/CPU and the CPU is a 533FSB can I assume that the combo is "pre-set" and I will not have to do anything?
Question .... Is the Crucial PC3200 memory I have here compatible??
Lastly, can I ask you to please be very "frank" and also very thorough in your replies?
Thanks in advance to all that will provide help here!
Can you buy a new motherboard/CPU/RAM? I mean a newer technology, that one is very old (CPU, mobo, memory), the new ones are not expensive. Something like an AM3 socket motherboard and a dual core Athlon II X2 + 2G of DDR3 RAM.
