dude, quit posting the same question with different titles. if someone know's the answer they'll help you.

no vestige of a beginning, no prospect of an end, when we all disintegrate, it'll all happen again.

Yeah, I read you post the first time. I have no clue. If you don't get anything here, why don't you go look around and try to find out yourself. I'd do that for you, but I'm too lazy right now.

Oh lookit <A HREF="" target="_new">here's</A> a site to tell you. About halfway down the page. It says that 370 pin sockets will accept both FCPGA and PPGA CPUs.

"The physical socket is the same for PPGA and FC-PGA, but some of the pinouts were changed so an FC-PGA chip will not boot up in a system that doesn't support them. If your board doesn't support FC-PGA chips, though, you may want to look into the PowerLeap Neo S370, which allows you to install FC-PGA chips in a Socket 370 board which only supports PPGA Celerons."

Since he said strictly a ppga motherboard, then no a fcpga chip will not work on it.

correct... FCPGA & PPGA are diff architectures, do not try it as it will not work
(FCPGA seems to B used for P3s & newer celerons, PPGA is P2 & older celerons)

There are no stupid questions... just lots of inquisitive idiots...

BAM! Correct answer!

You can use ppga in fc-pga, but not the other way around...
