If the motherboard you have installed accepts a socket 370 processor and you replaced the board, it would also have to be a socket 370 unless you were planning on upgrading the processor also. If you wanted to keep your existing computer case and other hardware, you might want to look for an inexpensive pentium 4 motherbard and processor to replace it instead of the pentium 3 you now have. If you get a new board that uses the same memory that you now have installed it would be a relatively inexpensive upgrade.

I have ATXmodel intelceleron1.2Ghz cpu1.2 cache 256KB Intel 810E chipset motherboard can i upgrade my processor to pentium 4 and ram to 512mb


No, u can't. ur motherboard is designed for pentium III processors with FSB -133 MHz, Socket-370 type. Pentium 4 processors have 400 MHz FSB, 423 Socket at least. But yes for memory, u can upgrade it to 512 MB.

I need a motherboard manual for a Dell Precision 420 motherboard (Dell p/n 9410W). The system currently has dual slot 1 P3 933 MHz processors. In particular, I would like to know if I can put faster...


Given that you have "Slot 1" sockets, you're already using "fast" 933Mhz CPUs -- you could possibly find a pair of 1000Mhz CPUs, or a pair of "slotket" adapters (Slot 1 on one edge, Socket 370 on one side) and connect a 1100 Mhz Socket 370 CPU to each slotket adapter.

That's a lot of money & work (if you can find the parts) to get a small "boost" from 933 Mhz to 1000 Mhz or to 1100 Mhz.

You might be better-off to add more RAM to your computer, or to buy a brand-new "twice-as-fast" computer.

Soyo SY-7VMA-B -supports P-3 tualatin (.13u) CPU's?


when looking for a cpu for the socket 370, be sure to NOT get the socket 370 cpu that is made for servers.

this type requires a motherboard made specifically for that type cpu.

use a search engine to find out how to tell if it is a socket 370 server CPU, there is not enough space here for me to explain it.
in that search you will also find out how to determine the answer to your question about cpu's supported by that motherboard..

most socket 370 based systems run pretty well, so you have a good machine there, and it's worth your time to keep it running, and to upgrade it.

DELL OptiPlex GX150 Upgrading


The fastest processor you can install in a GX150 is a Pentium III 1.13 Ghz processor.

The Socket 370 was a design used only for P3 processors.

Max RAM for that system is 512MB no way to upgrade past that.

If you paid $100 for a GX150, you paid way too much (You can buy a refurbished Dell Dimension C521 for $225 at their refurb site)

DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 Upgrade to Intel Pentium 4


Upgrading to a PIII to a PIV usually requires a new motherboard. Especially with that kind of speed you want to go to. The processor uses a different socket set and requires a different motherboard to absorb twice as much heat as you are putting out of the computer right now (the faster the processor, the more heat is released). Power supply should be around 400 watts as well because you will be needing a different cooling system as well.

Upgrading my processor without changing my motherboard


A pentium 3 processor is probably in a Socket 370 socket.

None of the current processors would fit in this socket, so you would want to look at second-hand computer stores / markets or maybe in your local classifieds.

It might be worth checking what speed processors your motherboard can support up too before buying one.
