Would that pup work in my 865 and/or 875 chipset? I'll pull the trigger if the consensus is yes. <pre> \|/ jlanka (. .) ___________oOOo_(_(_)_)_oOOo___________ </pre><p> More about : 199 newegg ChipDeath September 2, 2004 4:07:28 PM Yup, it should work in a 865/875 mobo.. <i>might</i> need a BIOS update, but probably not. Personally I'd pay the extra $4 for the northwood 3.0C chip, just because it runs cooler so comes with a noticeably quieter Fan, plus of course will lead to lower case temperatures... Well, Actually I'd buy the 2.6 or 2.8 and overclock it, but that's just me :smile: ... But given the choice between the 3.0E and 3.0C I'd take the C. --- Epox 8RDA+ V1.1 w/ Custom NB HS XP1700+ @200x10 (~2Ghz), 1.4 Vcore 2x256Mb Corsair PC3200LL/1x512Mb Corsair XMS PC4000 2.5-3-3-7 Sapphire 9800Pro (VGA Silencer Rev3) @418/742 endyen September 2, 2004 11:43:55 PM If you already have an 865/875 mobo, what chip are you running now? Upgrading from any of the P4c chips would not yield much.
