Hi,

well i'm about to change a Celeron D 3.47 ghz for a core2duo e4300,
so my question is if the stock heatsink is enough for the core2duo or should i buy another one?

  1. The core2 should come with a heatsink.

    Nope, since it's from second hand it's just the processor.
  3. Celeron D to C2D. hmm what Motherboard, have you checked compatibility!

    yep i've already checked here's the link

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00910113&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us

    Socket type: 775
    Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
    Core 2 Duo (Conroe) up to E4300
    Pentium D (Presler) up to 960 (3.6 GHz)
    Pentium 4 (Cedar Mill) up to 661 (3.6 GHz)
    Celeron D (Cedar Mill) up to 365 (3.6 GHz)
    Celeron D (Prescott) up to 355 (3.33GHz)

    pretty much the core2duo it's my best option and buying another botherborad it's out of the table for now

    You'll be fine,
    The celeron D was an 89w part and the core2 is a 65w.

    kk, so how about performance? is it worth the upgrade with this motherboard before replacing it?

    btw i'm getting the core2duo for about 30 bucks
  7. you should see an improvement going from a single core netburst architecture to a dual core using the core2 architexture despite the lower speed of the e4300. Do you plan on overclocking the e4300?

    even if i wanted to do it, I've readed in other sites that with this motherboard (ECS 945gct-hm) i'ts locked from factory because it's a pre-build system so you can't do it and correct me if i'm wrong.
  9. Should be.
