The largest pentium 4 processor on the market is the 3.4 ghz pentium 4 processor it comes in extreme edition but thats rather pricey. Your motherboard should be able to support it. Your computer will probably support up to 4 gigs of ram.

Motherboard replace processor cpu i have an hp pavilion a820n tower with no cpu or power supply can u tell me what kind i need?


the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.

Well, you can see your computer spesification here:

your socket is mPGA478, so it will be compatible with:
Celeron (Willamette) 1.5 GHz - 2 GHz RK80531RC041128 (BX80531P200G128) Celeron (Northwood) 1.5 GHz - 2.8 GHz RK80532RC072128 (BX80532RC2800B) Celeron D (FC-PGA2 package) 2.13 GHz - 3.2 GHz Celeron D 350 Mobile Celeron 1.2 GHz - 2.5 GHz RH80532NC060256 Mobile Pentium 4 processors (micro FC-PGA4 package) 2.4 GHz - 3.46 GHz Mobile Pentium 4 552 Mobile Pentium 4-M processors (FC-PGA package) 1.4 GHz - 2.6 GHz RH80532GC064512 Pentium 4 1.4 GHz - 3.4 GHz RK80546PG0961M (BX80546PG3400E)
RK80532PG096512 (BX80532PG3400D) Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.2 GHz - 3.4 GHz RK80532PG0962M (BX80532PG3400F)

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Can I change out the intel pentium d 920 cpu for a faster 945?


No, In a store bought PC, the software that runs your computer is closely related to the motherboard and processor that are inside it.

You should purchase a new PC or purchase the parts to build your own PC.

I hope you find this information helpful.

I need a cpu fan what size does it take


It goes by which socket you have. I am an Intel connoisseur so my knowledge ends with Intel PCs.

If your processor is an early Intel Pentium 4, you will want a socket 478 CPU cooler.

If your processor is a late Intel Pentium 4 or Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad (~2ghz+) you will want a socket 775 CPU cooler. Luckily this socket is still in wide use and many can be found locally or online.

If your processor is an Intel Core i7, you will want a socket 1366 cooler.

Just go to a local PC store and ask for an LGA478, LGA775, or LGA1366 CPU heatsink.

Will This Cpu fit my computer?


You can put the cpu in, its the same socket and the same pin as that one you have now. But you will probably not be able to use the 800Ghz fully since it is the motherboard who sets the buz speed and the cpu you using now haz the speed of 533Ghz.
About the RAM, you can have maximum 2GB of memory on that motherboard, thats all it supports. The momory type you can use is DDR PC2100/PC1600

All you need to know about your PC you will find here

I have an eMachine T2240 with an Intel Celeron processor 2.20 GHz & 384 MB of RAM.  The only real complaint I have is that this machine runs slow - it is rather aged - and I tend to bump up against my...


Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here.
This will give you the biggest speed increase.

CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

NEW PROCESSOR


Im not sure because Pentium D is quite old but is still an LGA 775 CPU. I have 20% chance that it will work.
Why do you want to change to Core 2 Duo anyway? Its not gonna benefit you much except maybe a bit more speed in GHz and a bit more Chache.
If you want to you can download CPU-Z to identify your CPU.
www.cpuid.com
Run the utility and go to the "about" tab and dump to text file (press the button at the bottom)
Copy the things to do with the CPU and reply. Then ill have a look.
