If your manual states a max of 2.2GHZ then, take it as that, when your board was made the bios and bus speeds would be set at the maximum to run a 2.2GHZ, not a 3GHZ, also the heat sink and fan may not be enough to cool the processor. The only way that a 3GHZ would run was if you updated the bios and personally i would not recommend it. You would be better advised updating the board and processor as a package ot fitting more memory if the pc is not used for gaming or high end video editing.

Specifications and requirements for building up a pentium 2


A good motherboard with an AGP 8X slot, if you can find one. The board should be ATX rather than micro atx, the full size boards are usually better running. It should take 4gb of ddr, hopefully pc3200.
Add a Northwood CPU, a fast one. A good socket 478 cooler.
DDR3200, this is fairly cheap on Ebay new. A good AGP card, maybe a geforce 3 or 4. A large IDE hard disk. ribbon cables. Maybe a floppy drive. DVD RW DRIVE. P4 PSU....350 WATSS AT LEAST.


LATER P4 478 CHIPS HAD 1MB CACHE RATHER THAN THE NORTHWOOD'S 512K CACHE BUT THEY RAN HOT AND NEEDED VERY GOOD COOLING GENERALLY, THEY ARE BEST AVOIDED IN MY OPINION.

you cannot upgrade it since it is a socket 478 board (Intel 845), the highest you can go is a 2.6Ghz Pentium 4 (I have one somewhere I think). You can upgrade the memory if you can find the stick for it (DDR1 266Mhz).

Sorry for my bad english


Hi mastelmkd, click on this link;
http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=prodcpusupport&prod_no=499&maincat_no=1#menu
This is MSI's link for supported CPU's for the 645E Max-U motherboard. Check you're bios version. You'll need ver 5.3 to run the Pentium 4 (Northwood, FSB533, L2 Cache 512KB), Pentium 4, 2.8GHz CPU. Or you can choose a lower CPU from the list. Suggest you add the link above to you're favorites.

Good luck mastelmkd!

MSI 845GE MAX L MOTHERBOARD JUMPER SETTINGS


Hello!

If the motherboard is new or you never set any jumper setting or you did not interfere any connection seeting their then you yo did not need jumper setting to seat the CPU.

The CPU you are going to use is very compatible in your mainboard so do not worry about the setting.

more about your setting click here for the usermanual of your board.

hope this help, melnavz

Intel ASUS P4 845 GL Motherboard


Hi, For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and". Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb. Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
