Question about Computers & Internet
Im looking around for a new CPU for my old banger (socket 478) what information is crucial to compatibility? I found a site that shows my mobo but its 6 years old. can you explain to me how to ID compatible CPU's pls?
You should try to find the manual of your mobo. Search the manufagurer website for the same model number. It usually lists all compatible CPUs.
Socket 478 is for Intel Pentium 4, Intel Celeron, Celeron D and Pentium 4 Extreme. But that doesn't mean your motherboard supports them all. You should still check the manual.
