Question about EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Are all P4 478pin cpu's compatible with the P4mm2 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..

    Thanks tomj23. My board is P4vmm2, socket 478 for pentium 4 type processors supporting FSB up to 533/400 MHz. I must replace cpu.
    Should I try to find an exact replacement (P4 2.6GHZ/512/533) or could I use a 2.8 or 3.06?

    Hi guys.



    i got P4VMM2 v5.0a ECS motherboard and desperately want a solution for my problem



    i just bought a new P4 (2.8GHz 533MHz FSB) to replace my current P4 (1.7GHz 400MHz FSB)



    when i put the new processor in, it takes too long to start run bios. when it does, the PC stated the processor only clocked at 1.4GHz



    the thing that confused me was from the ECS website stated that my motherboard (P4VMM2 v5.0a) can support until P4 HT



    then i bought another P4 (2.0GHz 400MHz FSB)



    the PC runs like normal when i use that processor.



    is there a way/solution for me to the 2.8GHz one?

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.

    Doing an exact replacement would be the safe route, however, depending on your motherboard version you may be able to go higher.
    V1.x:
    -Pentium 4 400Mhz FSB (256K/512K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6GHz
    -Celeron 400Mhz FSB (128K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6GHz

    V3.x:
    CPU: Pentium 4 400Mhz FSB (256K/512K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6G.
    Celeron 400Mhz FSB (128K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6G

    V7.x:
    Pentium 4 400Mhz FSB (256K/512K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6G.
    Pentium 4 533Mhz FSB (512K L2 cache) CPU ? 3.06G
    Celeron 400Mhz FSB (128K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.8G

My motherboard keeps on overheating @ 70C and over plz what must i do?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

If the overheating is not due to hardware issue, faulty components, you can control the temperature by using Heat sinks and Temperature controlling fans, and by regulating a proper Air flow to the unit. For this, you can also use Cooler Master casing specially designed for high end purposes, or can use any such available brand to control the temperature...

Instal better processors ive one at 2.4 . i want 2 X 2.4 PROCESSORS on a asrock motherboard ,E5200 @2.50ghz, 2 gig ram,Pentium(R) DUAL-CORE CPU. How do i install this on motherboard


The CPU support list is here for you to check.

http://www.asrock.com/support/CPU.asp

If your MoBo supports the CPU you wish to fit, remove the heat sink and cooling fan, unclip the CPU and replace in the correct orientation. DO NOT attempt to force the CPU into the socket.

Also note you may have to upgrade the heatsink and cooling fan.

How do you remove the heat sink from the CPU?


This depends on the CPU and the heat sink. The heat sink is fastened to the socket on the motherboard on two sides. It will be fastened to a tab on each side. In all likelyhood, the heat sink will have some sort of handle on it. AMD processors these days have a little lever that must be moved from the far right position up to the center. This loosens the heat sink and you can reach down to unhook first the side with the lever from the socket and then the back side. Intel processors seem to have a flat metal piece that must be pushed down to relieve tension on the clamp. As you do so, you have to get down by the socket on the motherboard and push the metal clamp away from the socket. This takes some doing, as it's quite tight. Once you have released the one side, the second side is loose and can be unfastened.
The heat sink can now be pulled up (use a slight twisting motion if possible to break the seal between the heat sink and the CPU. If the computer is several years old, the seal will be hard to break.
