Can i put core2quad in lenovo 969084u LGA 775(socket T)


That would all depend on the processor you want to use. You would need to find one with the same FSB as the Celeron you are removing. If you look on the CPU you will see a group of numbers one of the will be the frequency, one is the cache RAM and one is the FSB. For the period of your computer it is likely to be in the region of 533mhz. Having looked at the CPU world database, the answer is NO. The Tower you are asking about has a socket 478 not a 775, according to the Lenovo website.

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.

Left-click on - Technical Specifications - in the list.

Left-click on - Physical - in the list.

Height: How tall the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.
Width: How wide the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.
Depth: How long the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.

If you meant Specifications instead;


A) Processor:
Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
Either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB.

(Dell also indicates the Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processors are supported. Too expensive for what you get in return)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Ram Memory:
DDR Sdram that operates at 333MHz, or 400MegaHertz.
PC2700 and PC3200 respectively.

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 4GigaByte
There are 4 Ram Memory slots. EACH slot has a Maximum Amount of 1GB.

C) Motherboard Chipset:

Northbridge chip: Intel 875P. (Part Number Intel 82875P )

(For Intel the Northbridge chip is the MCH, for this particular Northbridge chipset.
Memory Controller Hub)

The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801EB (Part Number) or Intel 82801ER (P/N)
Commonly known as the Intel ICH5, or Intel ICH5R.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

In the chart go down on the right side to - 875P

Looking across, and at the headings, you can see under the heading - Processors, that there are more Intel processors supported, than just the Intel Celeron's, and Pentium 4's.

Core2 Duo, Core2 Quad, Core2 Extreme, Pentium Dual Core, and Xeon.

Problem is they don't use a Socket 478 processor socket.
All except for the Xeon ( 'Zee-On' ) use an LGA 775 processor socket.
Xeon models use a Socket 603, or Socket 604, or LGA 771, processor socket.

It is just processors that the Intel 875P chipset will support.

D) Graphics Expansion Slot:

AGP
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards.

How to recognise a pin and pi nnless processor


A pin Processor has metal pins on the bottom of it.

For an example let's use an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that fit in a Socket 478 processor socket.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/TYPE-Desktop%20Pentium%204%20Willamette.html

Viewing the link above, observe the green square under the grayish metallic looking square.
The green square is a circuit board.
(Width and length, about the length of your first digit on your thumb)

The grayish metallic square, is a metal shell cover over a Chipset.
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The Integrated Circuit here is the Processor.
The Processor is connected to the green circuit board. (PCB. Printed Circuit Board)

On the bottom of the green circuit board are contact pins. In this case 478 of them. (478 pins)

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/Intel-Pentium%204%201.7%20GHz%20-%20RK80531PC029G0K%20%28BX80531NK170G%29.html

The tiny metal contact pins fit down into matching socket holes, in the processor socket.

A Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

(You can click on the photo to the upper right to enlarge it.

The next design to come out, has the Processor with contact pads, (Pinless), and the processor socket has the contact pins.
An LGA 775 processor socket,

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


Example of a Pentium Dual Core's bottom side. (LGA 775 processor socket is used),

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_Dual-Core/Intel-Pentium%20Dual-Core%20E2220%20HH80557PG0561M%20%28BX80557E2220%20-%20BXC80557E2220%29.html


There you have it.

A 'Pin' processor has metal contact pins on the bottom.

A 'Pinless' processor has metal contact pads.

Dear Sir, my mother board d101 has been damaged can i use of p4sd m/b insted of that while i want all rest parts remain using i dont want change ram,SMPS, Proccesser etc.


fbhushan, the Intel D101GGC motherboard (Grand Country) supports;

1) Intel Pentium 4, Intel Celeron D, and Intel Pentium D processors that fit in an
> LGA 775 processor socket.

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

The Processor has the socket holes, and the processor socket (LGA 775) has the pins.
775 socket holes, and 775 pins.

The Front Side Bus (FSB) can be either 533MegaHertz, or 800MHz.


2) Supports DDR Sdram ram memory at either 333MegaHertz or 400MHz.
(PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)

Will support Up To 2GB of ram memory.
Has two ram memory slots. The maximum amount for EACH slot is 1GB


3) The SMPS used for it has,
A) One 24-pin ATX main power cable

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

B) One 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4


The Intel D101GGC motherboard has Four SATA headers (Connectors) on it, so I'm going to assume you are using a SATA harddrive.
This would mean the SMPS you are using should have at least one SATA power cable.

It should also have an assortment of 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables.
(Misnomered as 'Molex')



The Asus P4SD (Motherboard chipset Intel 865PE) supports;

1) Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Celeron processors that fit in a > Socket 478 processor socket

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The Processor has the pins, and the processor socket has the socket holes.
478 pins, and 478 socket holes.

Your Processor will NOT work.

The Ram Memory WILL work.

The SMPS MAY work.

I state MAY because the Asus P4SD motherboard uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable.

If the last four pins of the 24-pin ATX main power cable that you have on your SMPS right now, Do Not remove, you can Carefully cut them off. Wrap them up, and out of the way.
If you need guidance on this I can help instruct you.

You need an IDE (PATA) harddrive, or a SATA adapter card to use a SATA harddrive.

So there you have it sir.

Right i need the size or model for the cooling fan that all intelboard mode E210882


The Heatsink/Fan combo is based on the processor socket used.

After a few search hits, I have seen E210882 on Intel based motherboards, that use two different processor sockets.
The Socket 478, and the LGA 775 processor socket.

The socket for the Socket 478 has the pin holes. The Processor has the pins. (478 of them)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The socket for the LGA 775 processor socket has the pins. The Processor has the pin holes. (775 of them)

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

Identify which processor socket you have, buy accordingly as to the Heatsink/Fan combo.

One example of a Heatsink/Fan combo for an Socket 478 processor socket,
(Only Intel uses the Socket 478 for their Processors),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=578161&CatId=795

(Only Intel uses the LGA 775 socket for their Processors),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3302824&CatId=1588

Remember to observe Anti-Static Precautions, Thoroughly clean the top of the Processor's case, and aplly fresh new thermal paste.
(A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component to Static shock)

[ Example of thermal paste,

Does the MB support an Intel Prescott 3,06 ghz fsb 800mhz processor?


that is a socket 478 board. it supports northwood and early prescotts. prescotts at 3.06 with the 800mhz fsb were made in both socket 478 and lga 775 forms, so you have to make sure that your processor is indeed a socket 478 model.

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.

Dell Dimension 4300 PC Processor upgrade


if the sci36-r13 is the stock mobo that came with that pc it isnt worth upgrading
pentium 4's use the LGA-775 socket this is compatible with all pentiums and core 2's (not includeing core i7), so you could put in a core 2 quad if you wanted to but it would not make much difference to performance because your motherboard would not be able to handle some of the fetures
your ram would also reduce preformance

if you wanted to upgrade that computer you would have to replace everything but maybe the case
