how can I separate CPU from processor ? now it's like a glue which is impossible split from each other, so what is the best way to sever that ? :bounce:

Turn the computer on. Run any program that will heat the cpu.
Prime 95, OCCT, Intel burn test, as examples. once the cpu is good and warm turn off computer an gently twist the heatsink clockwise then counter clockwise several times.
Now lift the heatsink from one side,not straight up.

You mean the heat sync, because the processor is the CPU!
Follow Rick's instructions.

I had to use a screw driver once to pry a processor from a heatsink, but be careful not to damage it, processor popped off and flew a few feet.

Usually I just run the computer first as it softens the paste from the heat, but if you can't do that your probably just going to have to pry it off .

If the computer can't boot using a heat gun/hair dryer could do the trick. All you need is to heat the Thermal past enough to soften it up a little.

hair dryer method works great, dont get to close to heat it. It doesnt take much usually and dont forget you just heated it up, wear a pair of gloves.

is it only three motherboards which will work with above processor ?

if I am looking for an motherboard I need pay attention for 478 socket right ?

The 478 socket is the physical size and layout of the CPU's pins, so yes. As to those 3 motherboards working with your CPU I really have no idea. They have the 478 socket but there maybe other requirements too. That CPU is really old and outdated so there really isn't much of a selection for you.

Really at this point it would probably be easier and better to upgrade to a current system if that is a possibility for you.

it's interesting, I get that processor from Rev: 1.6 IBM motherboard..
