    I have found sites that list compatible CPU's for my Mobo, but what I really want to know is what information is important? eg: if a CPU matches my Mobo specs for FSB, socket and any other crucial spec can I presume it will be compatible, or do I have to check a list from a chip supplier and be restricted to that?

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.

    You should stick to the supported CPUs for your mobo. And try to find the latest updated manual for that mobo so it would have an updated list of supported CPUs.

Is ABIT SG-71 a Pentium 4 motherboard and what are the specs, the does and donts


The ABIT SG-71 is an Intel Socket 478 that could take a Pentium 4 or Celeron CPU (533/400MHz) designed for the 478 socket. It could support up to 2 GB of DDR 333 memory.

This motherboard may not be worth putting in a new CPU; it is over 10 year old technology. It's very old and slow compared to even two year old CPU and motherboard options.

Cindy Wells
(if you do want to replace the CPU, remove the old hardware. Use extreme care not to bend any pins on the CPU. Add new thermal paste to the top of the CPU and then put on the heatsink. Connect the CPU fan to the CPU fan header.)

Thinking about upgrading the CPU on an Emachine 4313. It is a socket P board with an M530 in it and wondered if I could go to a dual core Penryn CPU?


The Socket P has 478 pins, but is not pin-compatible with Socket M or Socket 478. Socket P is also known as a 478-pin Micro FCPGA or μFCPGA-478. Google it for stores that carry dual core Socket P chips.

Motherboard ID Motherboard Name Compaq Evo


as long as it is a socket 478 processor which narrows it down to P4 or celeron ( P4 being better and faster ) it should be fine.
Obviously it will state what processors it can handle in the computer manual so if you find the manual it should state in there.
I dont think it will handle more then a 3ghz P4

New cpu for my motherboard


Hopefully it is compatible.

Here is how you can check. First look up the brand and model of the motherboard. Motherboards are usually labeled with that info.

Next go to the motherboard's manufacturer's website. Search Google using the brand name of the motherboard you should get a website in the results.

Then go to the products information of the website, or the downloads section and look up the model number of the motherboard you have.

You should be able to get specs on what CPU the motherboard supports. Or download a manual with specs.

Comment if you need more help.
