Question about ASUS P4PE-X Motherboard

1 Answer

Will 800MHz P4 3GHz chip work on a Motherboard w/400MHz Bus Speed

I want to replace my 2.6 ghz pentium 4 with a 3 ghz pentium 4 with an 800 MHz Bus Speed. My motherboard is a P4G533 (Echo). The specs on the HP website say it has a Proc. Front Side Bus Freq. of 400 MHz. Will the 3GHz pentium work on the P4G533?

Specs on this cpu process


MicroStar International (Inc) Support > 865PE Neo2-P Platinum Edition (MSI MS-6728) Main Support page,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/865PE-Neo2-P-Platinum-Edition.html

Click on Specification
(Overview / Specification / Download / Support / etc)

CPU (Processor) Support;

1) Intel Pentium 4 processors that have;

A) Use a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Northwood Core, or Prescott Core

C) Front Side Bus (FSB) of 400MegaHertz (400MHz) for Intel Pentium 4 processors that are based on the Northwood Core.

D) FSB support of either 533MHz, or 800MHz, for Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core.

Processors that have an 800MHz FSB can be used, that have UP TO a 3.6GHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Indication that higher 'speeds' can be supported. (Overclocking?)

Now let's look at Intel Pentium 4 processors, that are based on the Northwood Core, and fit a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Front Side Bus = FSB
The M/Ts listing means MegaTransfers per Second.
Believed to be a more accurate method of stating the FSB, than MHz.

MegaHertz
Mega = 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second. Was named after a man with the last name Hertz.
Example; 400MHz = 400 Million Cycles per Second )

Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core, and utilizing the Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

sSpec Number will be on the processor, as well as the Part Number.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/index.html

Scroll down for photos.

CPU support can be attested to looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset, on your motherboard.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 865PE chipset.
Intel 82865PE northbridge chip, and an Intel ICH5 southbridge chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Scroll down to 865PE in the left column.

The part number on the Intel ICH5 southbridge chip, is Intel 82801EB,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Southbridge_8xx_chipsets

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

HIGH-speed graphics is the AGP technology, or PCI Express technology.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

If this is a question of what CPU is on your motherboard at present, and the motherboard is in a working computer, suggest use the free tiny program CPU-Z from CPUID.com,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Need to know how to download, install, and use CPU-Z, post back in a Comment.

No, it will not work because the chipset can't support anything beyond 400MHz. You can see that yourself here

I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...


Hello,
The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
Dont install Prescott processor.
Hope it will help you.

I want to know that shall i put pentium 4/ 2.4 Ghz/ 533 Fsb/ Processor on this Gigabyte 845GVM-RZ board? will it support ?and i have 1 Gb ddr1 400 mhz ram will this work on this Board?


Yes for the Intel Pentium 4/2.4GHz/533FSB processor. (Socket 478)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Scroll through. What sSpec number is on top of the processor's case? {You are following Anti-Static Precautions, correct? }

Won't support better than a Prescott Core Pentium 4. (Next chart down)

The Gigabyte GA-8I ((Supports 400MHz or 533MHz FSB)

NO to the Ram Memory.
The Gigabyte GA-8I845GVM-RZ supports DDR Sdram at 333Mhz. (PC2700)
IMHO it will not support DDR Sdram at 400MHz. (PC3200)

My reasoning is this;

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate of the Processor.

Processor FSB > MAXIMUM frequency rate is 533MegaHertz for the GA-8I845GVM-RZ
Ram memory at 333MHz is doable.
Not 400MHz.

No, you won't be able to overclock, and bring the FSB of the Processor high enough for PC3200 Ram Memory.
(The rest of the motherboard wouldn't work anyway if you did. PCI Express bus, PCI bus, etc., would not match)

Can some one please let me know the name of the motherboard supporting Pentium 4 1.5 Ghz processor as well as Intel Core duo series of processors. Thanks, Ajay


The chips to which you refer are incompatible with respect to the socket used for each as well as the fact that Core duo and Pentium 4 1.5 GHz chips are from separate generations, the latter having been obsolescent since 2003. Therefore, there is no single motherboard that supports both, and the Pentium 4, Socket 478 boards can be obtained from various aftermarket sources.

Here is an example of the kind of board you need for your Pentium 4.

Is there any problem in using a 1GB DDR with 400MHz speed in Intel D845GVSR board?


Since Intel says that this board will support DDR with 200/266/333 MHz speeds only.There should not be problem with your board more so that it works fine.
