    look at the motherboard, and you will see a manufacturer, and model # on it. Even just a model # can be traced to a manufacturer.

    Look near the middle for a white set of numbers & Letters and re-post your findings so we can help further

Look for the name right on the board in Block letters, or on the bottom right, you should see the chipset name on a tiny chip, which better identifies the mobo than the manufacturer.

I need to know what kind to buy for this board. the processor heatsink ASRock ge pro-ht


Socket 478 is a very old socket type, it's been around for nearly a decade. The only processors that work with this socket are Intel's Northwood Pentium 4 and Celeron processors, which are now far surpassed in performance. I would definitely recommend buying a new motherboard for whatever you were going to use this one for. If you are set on this motherboard, however, read on.

Many computer hardware companies have stopped carrying Socket 478 processors. You will most likely have to buy one second-hand. A quick search on Amazon will give you a few buying options (all used) for around $20-$30 US.

Due to the age of the processors, you will probably need to purchase a heat sink seperately. This heatsink is $20, will fit Socket 478, and has very good reviews, but of course feel free to use any heatsink as long as it fits Socket 478: http://bit.ly/hk6yZ5

If you also need memory, be sure it is DDR 333/266, as this is the ONLY type of memory that the 2 memory slots on motherboard will take (maximum 2GB of memory). You can find list of DDR 333 memory in varying capacities here: http://amzn.to/fOGbeV

Support dualcore?


That is a socket 478 motherboard. I doubt that one even gets dual core processors in the 478 chipset. Also according to the ECS website, this is a Pentium 4/Celeron board. More info can be found here.

Asrock ge pro-m2 whats the best spec i can upgrade to?


According to the downloadable manual on the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.asrock.com/MB/manual.asp?Model=GE%20PRO-M2

the maximum RAM supported is 2GB, and it is a Socket 478 CPU interface.

Since you don't have the "GE PRO-HT" motherboard,
you cannot use a "hyper-threading" CPU.
So, you can use any non-hyper-threading Pentium/Celeron that has a Socket 478 interface.

Thinking about upgrading the CPU on an Emachine 4313. It is a socket P board with an M530 in it and wondered if I could go to a dual core Penryn CPU?


The Socket P has 478 pins, but is not pin-compatible with Socket M or Socket 478. Socket P is also known as a 478-pin Micro FCPGA or μFCPGA-478. Google it for stores that carry dual core Socket P chips.
