Pentium 4

Can I take a pentium 4 3.2g w/hyper thread out of a dell optiplex gx280 and drop it in an aopen MB that has a pentium 4 2.8g and no Hyper Thread?

Thanx grb3963

  1. If the AOpen mobo doesn't support that series of processors (the one from the Optiplex GX280 in your example), it will not boot afterward. You need to install a CPU that the intended motherboard supports (look for the latest BIOS update for it as well).

    Good luck!
  2. You have to find out what cpu's your Dell's motherboard supports. It may or may not.

    Best bet to check out Dell's website or contact support.
