Question about Intel Computers & Internet
Unlikely, I would think that the best processor you could use would be a 3.0Ghz or maybe a 3.06Ghz. If you look at the motherboard part number you will be able to find out from the manufacturers what the fastest CPU is. A lot depends on the FSB on the mobo and the Bios version. You need a "Socket 478" processor I think you will find that the processors you are looking at are "Socket 775" ( this is the fitting socket for the processor) .

This particular CPU is not on the list of processors supported by this board. See "CPU Support List" tab:
ASUS P4-P5N9300 Spec
How to install Socket LGA 775 CPUs:
Lift up the cpu slot load plate (which covers the pins and also locks the cpu in place) and install the processor slowly, vertically and carefully into the socket without bending any of the tiny pins in the motherboard socket. Lock the load plate.
The advent of the LGA 775 form factor moved the tiny pins from the CPU to the motherboard socket. Great for Intel, not so great for motherboard manufacturers. Now bent pins are the responsibility of the board makers. Customers with bent pin problems are no longer contacting Intel.

Hi, as long as both chips are slot 478 it should work fine, you wont need to change any bios or jumpers, just open up the computer, remove the heatsink, lift the lever and remove the CPU.
Insert new processor.
you will need thermal grease at this point, you need to apply a little amount onto the cpu, and make sure the old thermal paste is removed from the heatsink and then refit the heatsink & fan.
other option is fit the new cpu and purchase a new heatsink & fan, they usually come with the thermal grease, a new heatsink will cost about £10 or themal grease by itself will cost about 2-3 pounds.
just make sure you have new thermal paste before you remove the heatsink as the processor will get damaged otherwise..
Hope this helps
