Question about Intel Motherboard
I have a never used Gigabyte GA-81 EXW motherboard without a CPU. I have searched the web, can't find specs to tell me what CPU can be used for this particular motherboard. I did find one server unit for sale with this board that is using a P4 2.8Ghz 533FSB. It did not give socket spec, but did see that GA-EXP uses 478. Here is my question: Would I be safe using any 478 socket P4 up to 3Ghz on this motherboard? I am assuming this is a specialty serverboard, so does this make any difference using it as my home use computer?
No it wont make any difference. It is very safe to use 478 socket on processor with 3Ghz.
