    i have a Intel Pentium Dual 64 775 on a gateway desktop, and I'm really getting frustrated with the performance when i play any game that has decent graphics, i have a nvidia gt8500 1gb video card, 4gb ram, and still have to turn my settings all the way down to play a game without the frps taking a poop, should i buy a new processor? and if so what intel processor should i get?

    Go ahead . It's you computer. Have you upgraded the power supply and the CPU heatsink to deal with the extra power needed and heat generated?

You can't overclock that processor in a Dell system, the bios won't allow it. You could try it in an aftermarket motherboard but you are asking for too much extra. 10-20% is reasonable, possibly more with liquid cooling. Keep in mind your system will probably be unstable at first, until you get all the adjustments for memory timing and bus speeds just right. It is a lot cheaper and less trouble to just buy a faster computer.

The CPU my Intel S975XBX2 Motherboard is Overheating at about 67c to 82c with a Pentium d processor clocked at 3ghz (not overclocked)


clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your central processing unit making VERY sure there is no moisture in the air line

as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems

hope this helps

Where can i buy a new Intel Pentium 4 3GHz 512/800 CPU processor - SL6WK ? mine broke, i need a new one


Try your local (not part of a "big-box" chain) computer-store. They may have a "pre-owned" one.

Or, look on eBay: http://shop.ebay.ca/?_nkw=SL6WK

where there currently are 40(!) auction-listings.

I have an ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard socket LGA775


Hi,

To answer your question, yes it's possible.

I'm sure you wouldn't like it if I left it at that, so I'll explain a bit more.

It's about as simple as this: The processor you want to install into the motherboard is for an LGA 775 mobo such as yourself. Therefore, it should have no problems when you put it in.

Hope I was of assistance.

USES only 2ghz instead of 3


Have you just installed this processor as an upgrade?? Check the jumper settings on the motherboard and the multiplyer in the bios.You need 133Mhz clock speed. With the multiplier of 23 which is set in the bios automatically by the CPU id 23x133 = 3.06Ghz. I suspect that the jumper settings are for 100Mhz so 100x23 = 2.3Ghz. Let me know how you get on or if you have any more questions as i have the same motherboard and im gonna buy one of these processors @ Lecousi@yahoo.co.uk

Compatible processor


Yes, if you overclock you computer, I believe if you enter your bios of the motherboard, asus already has a pre overclock options. That is if your using a p4 2.8 ghz processor. You can not put a 3ghz processor and overclock it to a higher fsb, your motherboard will literally smoke up but, most motherboards probably can easily detect a non compatible CPU.
