  1. What exactly is the socket name of your motherboard or just give me a motherboard model and I will look it up.
  2. Depends on the socket, it can be a 432 , 478 or a 775, if it is a 478 or 432 than there are no dual core processors for that socket, the first dual core processors were made for socket 775. If it is a 775 than you can find dual-core processors for that socket easily with google.
  3. MOBO: AsRock P4I45GV 3.00 PLATFORM :Socket 478 (Micro ATX Form Factor: 9.6-in x 8.2-in, 24.4 cm x 20.8 cm)
  4. Sorry but there aren't any dual-core processors for your motherboard socket as far as i read on the internet.

    The best processor you can have is suggested in the first link, otherwise it might be time to upgrade your system.
  5. Nope. No dual cores were made for socket 478.

    Even if you had 775, you'd still need to have proper chipset support.
  6. If you are still looking for confirmation, then +1 to the previous posters. Can't go dual core for that socket.
  7. CPU suppoprt @

    Best you will get is a P4 Northwood 3.06GHz 533FSB 512K Cache and then overclock it, you could hit 3.6Ghz with good 3rd party cooling, but don't go over 70c cpu temperature or 1.6volts.
