2 :Also some of my friends are suggesting that i buy a thermal pad or whatever that gel is called? is it necessary?
I mean i dont mind buying it but is it needed? can i stick the cpu and be done with it?
3: Also cooling, will this processor need an upgrade for fan or anything?
4: Is this processor better then the e7500 at 2.9 ghz?
Note: im low on money and this is my best bet at newegg, cant be bothered with ebay i tried getting a 47500 BUT THE BETS WENT UP TO $80 DOLLARS+ i won't be doing much gaming with this cpu. I play www.runescape.com it doesnt need that high tech cpu's but my current one is too slow.
1. That processor is unsupported, the motherboard only supports these (and newer) processors:
Socket type: 775
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
Core 2 Duo E7xxx (Wolfdale-M)
Core 2 Duo E4x00 (Conroe)
Pentium E2xxx series (Conroe)
Celeron Dual Core E1xx0 series (Conroe)
Celeron 4xx series (Conroe)
2. Thermal paste is needed between the CPU and the heatsink. You also need to clean the heatsink with rubbing alcohol before you re-apply the paste for the new CPU.
