Dell dimension maximum cpu upgrade


This desktop has a motherboard in it that has an intel LGA 775 processor socket in it. From the spec's I found the cpu that ships with the system should be able to scale up to 3.5 Ghz. But you should be able to replace it with any Pentium 4 that fits into an LGA 775 socket.

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)

What processor can use to upgrade my Pentium 4 2GHz in my HP M1270


HP Media Center M1270n desktop PC?

Here are the Product Specifications,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00280666&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=443756

Here is the Motherboard Specifications,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00297771&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=443756

The Asus PTGD1-LA motherboard, is a Proprietary motherboard, made Especially for HP.
HP's name is PufferM-UL8E

You won't find it on the Asus Support website.

Fortunately, HP listed basic information for CPU (Processor) Support.

When you look to the right of the CPU/Processor heading, you can see it states -
A) Socket LGA 775 (Processor socket)

Looks like this,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Processors that fit this processor socket, have the socket holes.
775 of them.
The LGA 775 processor socket, has the pins that go up into the socket holes of the Processor.
775 of them.

[The Socket 478 processor socket, that was before the Land Grid Array 775 processor socket, has the socket holes (478), and the processors that fit this processor socket, has the pins. {478 of them]

B) Supports processors with up to a 3.8GigaHertz frequency rate.
3.8GHz.

['Speed' is a slang term for Frequency Rate.
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

3.8 Billion Cycles per Second.
Can also be stated as 3800 MegaHertz.
Mega = approximately 1 Million ]

C) Can support Intel Pentium 4 processors with HT.
Hyperthreading Technology.

D) Looking to the right of the Front-side bus (FSB) heading, you will see it states -
800MHz.

This means the Asus PTGD1-LA motherboard will support Pentium 4 processors with,
1) HT
2) UP TO a 3.8GHz frequency rate
3) Up to a FSB frequency rate of 800Megahertz.
4) Use an LGA 775 processor socket.

Now let's look at one example, of a chart of Pentium 4's with HT, that fits these specifications,

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


See the heading - Prescott (90nm)?
This means the processors in this chart, are based on the Prescott Core, and the 90nm architecture.

(nm stands for NanoMeter. Approximately 1 Billionth of a meter)

Looking at the headings in the chart, you will see Model Number, sSpec Number, Frequency, L2-cache, Front-Side Bus, Multiplier, Voltage, TDP, Socket, Release Date, Part Number/s, and Release Price.

At this point I would only concern myself with the,
Model Number, (If applicable),
sSpec Number,
Frequency,
FSB, (Front Side Bus),
Voltage,
Socket,
and Part Number(s)


1) Model Number:
The older Intel Pentium 4 HT processors did not have a Model Number.
Intel didn't start using a Model Number until later.
Model Number examples start with 517, 520, 520J, and so on.

Look for the sSpec Number, and the Part Number, for the older Pentium 4 HT's. They're printed on the top of the processor's case, and should be listed by the seller.

2) sSpec Number:
Intel brought this out.
Their way of marking a processor.
Another identifier for you to use.

3) Frequency:
The Maximum frequency rate, ('Speed'), that the Processor is supposed to be able to operate at.

4) L2-cache:
The small memory area for the Processor. The Processor accesses this small memory area first, because it operates at the same frequency rate as the Processor.

You can't change it, and 2MB of L2-cache, is the largest size for an Intel Pentium 4 with HT.
Just thought I would include this information.

(Ram Memory is next. Typically, Ram Memory operates at half of the FSB frequency rate. The Harddrive is next)

5) Front-Side Bus (FSB):
The frequency rate that the Processor transfers data (Information) to the Northbridge chip, and back from the Northbridge chip.
More on the Northbridge chip in a moment.

6) Voltage:
Pretty self-explanatory. The Voltage range the Processor will use.
You need the Voltage range of 1.25/1.4 Volts.
(1.25 Volts to 1.4 Volts)

Any Processor (That is Intel Pentium 4 HT, Socket LGA 775), that uses Voltage in this range will work.

7) Socket:
The type of processor socket that the Processor will fit in.
Has to be LGA 775.

8) Part Number(s)
Self-explanatory again.
The Part Number, that is stamped on top of the Processor's top case.

Part Number(s) is listed, because there may be more than one Processor in the Model Series, that fits the same specifications.

If there is no Model Number, refer to the sSpec Number, or Part Number.

The largest frequency rate (Speed) of Processor you can use, is a Pentium 4 HT that operates at 3.8GHz. (And fits in an LGA 775 processor socket)

Barring that a Pentium 4 at 3.8GHz cannot be found, you will know what Processors you Can use.

Scroll across the headings with your eyes, and start under the Frequency heading.

Find the frequency rate ('Speed') you wish to try.

Go across to the Front Side Bus heading. You should look for a processor listed that has an 800MHz listing.

Look at the Voltage.
All of the Intel Pentium 4 HT processors that fit in an LGA socket, use an 800MHz FSB, and are in THIS particular chart, fall within the same Voltage range.

Keep the Voltage range in your mind, as you look at the other charts below this one.

Socket.
You know you need a processor that fits in an LGA 775 socket.

Look at the chart below this Prescott Core (90nm) example.
Prescott 2M Core (90nm)

Use the above criteria above in this chart.

I wouldn't recommend any Pentium 4 HT's, in the Cedar Mill (65nm) chart.
It isn't that the architecture is smaller (65nm), but that the BIOS program,and version on your motherboard, may not be able to handle these processors listed.

I also do not see a BIOS update for one, and for two, if you make a mistake when performing a BIOS update, your motherboard becomes an expensive Frisbee, or doorstop.

You also do not want any of the processors listed under the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition heading.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

(Mobile Processors are for laptops Laptops are M-O-B-I-L-E)


Northbridge chip.

1) The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip make up the motherboard chipset.

(Does not apply to the new motherboards that support the Intel i3, i5, and i7 Core processors)

2) Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

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

The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of the computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and High speed graphics.

(AGP or PCI Express. Not a graphics card in a PCI slot, nor Integrated Graphics on the motherboard. These are slower processes of the computer)

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

(CPU = Processor
Memory Slots = Ram Memory slots)

Looking at the diagram, you can see the slower processes handled by the Southbridge chip.

Looking back at the Motherboard Specifications, look across from the Chipset heading.

Northbridge: i915P graphics and memory controller hub
(MCH)
Southbridge: ICH6 Intel I/O Controller Hub 6

Uses an Intel 915P Northbridge chip, and an Intel ICH6 Southbridge chip.

Can I upgrade Celeron -D 2.26Ghz to the same mobo ie. E219882


Intel E219882 motherboard, also know as Intel D850GB?

No.
1) The motherboard has a Socket 423 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_423

This processor socket has the socket holes, while the processor has the pins. Has 423 socket holes.

The Intel Celeron D 315 uses an LGA775 processor socket.
LGA775 is also known as Socket T. Has 775 pins in the processor socket. The processor used has the socket holes. 775 of them.

Celeron D 315 spec's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#Celeron_D

2) The Intel D850GB motherboard only supports Single Core processors. Not Dual Core like a Pentium D.
Must be an Intel single core processor, that fits in a Socket 423 processor socket.

Intel only made processors to fit the Socket 423 for about 2 years. Intel had a deal with Rambus, for memory to fit Intel's motherboards, for this period of time. The deal fell out, and Intel moved on.

The Intel D850GB motherboard Only uses RIMM memory modules, ('Stick/s') made by Rambus.
(RIMM. Rambus Inline memory Module)

Highly expensive, overrated ram memory.

Most major manufactures use motherboard designed to their specs and upgrades to the processor are limited. You can use software such as Belarc Advisor, to determine what motherboard you have and then you can search the net to determine what processors are compatible with it.

Will an Intel E7400 processor work with an MSI P965 Neo F V2?


Your processor "Intel E7400" is listed as a socket 775 Intell core 2 duo processor. Your motherboard "MSI P965 Neo F V2" is listed as an Intell board using a socket 775 processor socket. The front side buss (or fsb) speed capabilities of the mother board, and the buss speed of the processor are compatible They should play nice with each other.

Good Luck!

What do you need to look for in the motherboard specifications?

I suggest you start by going to HP.com/Support,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

In the box to the right of -> product search: <- type your model name and model number.
Example: Pavilion 7955

This will take you to the main page for your computer. See if -> Product Specifications <- is listed.
Click on that. Now see if -> Motherboard Specifications <- is listed. Click on that.

Look to see what processor socket you have, what Northbridge chipset you have, and what the Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is for the motherboard.

1.Processor: Intel Quad Core Q9650
Your motherboard has to have the LGA 775 processor socket. Also know as Socket T.
A.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T
This processor socket has the pins in it, and the processor has the socket holes. The older Socket 478, had the socket holes, while the processor had the pins.

You need a Northbridge chip that will support the Q9650.
IF, your motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket, I'm willing to bet your Northbridge chip is an Intel one.
This is a list of Intel chipsets. I have saved the link, to come up on Intel chipsets, that are for the Intel Core2. Match your HP motherboard's, Northbridge chipset, up with the one's listed on this chart. Look down the left column under the heading -> Chipset. After you find your chipset name, look across to the right. See if this chipset supports -> Core 2 Quad.

Example: The 945GC chipset supports Pentium 4, Pentium D, Celeron, Core 2 Duo, and the Intel Atom processor. Does not support Core 2 Quad.
The P965 supports (Uses) Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Quad.

You may find that a BIOS Upgrade is needed also.

Another way to find out your motherboard information, is to download (Free) CPU-Z from CPUID.com,
Info on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z
Homepage:
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

After you have downloaded this tiny, little program, and it is open, click on the Mainboard tab.
This shows a brief video on using CPU-Z,
