Question about EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard
I attempted to remove cpu heat sink for cleaning. The processor was stuck to the heat sink, and I damaged some pins. My damaged cpu is a P4 2.66ghz/512/533 for 478 socket. I am searching for a replacement and was wondering if a P4 2.8 or 3.06 will be compatible? Thanks..
Just in case your pins are only bent you can straighten them out as long as you are careful. Take a mechanical pencil without lead (.5 works ok but .7 may be easier to use) and ground it by touching it to your power supply. Then work the CPU pin slowly into the pencil and slowly bend the pin up. If you?re patient and careful you can usually straighten out any pins that have been bent. You didn?t stat which version motherboard you had. On the P4VMM2 (V1.3) motherboard the manual states that the motherboard will automatically determine the CPU clock and system buss frequency and makes the appropriate changes. The manuals only references a front-side buss limitation of 400 MHz, however, a FAQ from the manufactures support site says the V1.x motherboard?s CPU is limited as follows: - Pentium 4 400Mhz FSB (256K/512K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6GHz - Celeron 400Mhz FSB (128K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6GHz I would stick with the FAQ recommendations if you have to purchase a new processor, that or contact the support line to verify. Make sure you point out the FAQ on their site since they will probably just refer you to the manuals specs.
