There are a huge range of motherboards to choose from. Stick with the well known brands and with the functions that suit your requirements.
My choice of brands are Gigabyte, Intel, MSI.
If you are into gaming and video editing etc. go for a motherboard without a built-in graphics card and purchase a separate high end graphics card.

SOURCE: cpu upgrade , please help

tech-gu818,

When looking to see what processors a computer will support, try to find out what motherboard chipset is on the motherboard, and the processor socket.

The motherboard chipset is the;
1) Northbridge chip
2) Southbridge chip

[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for Integrated Circuit, or IC.
A Processor is one type of Integrated Circuit]

The Northbridge chip is responsible for handling the Processor, Ram Memory, and high-speed graphics, such as AGP, or PCI-Express.

Integrated graphics, or a graphics card installed in a PCI slot, is handled by the Southbridge chip. The slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

This motherboard diagram may help further illustrate the above statements,

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

(You can also type,
1) Northbridge (computing)
2) Southbridge (computing)
in Wikipedia's search box to obtain more info )

How to find out what motherboard chipset the eMachines W3502 uses?
Three ways:

1) Go to the computer manufacturer's support website, and look under Specifications.
2) Download the free, tiny, program CPU-Z from CPUID.com
3) Download the free, tiny, program Belarc Advisor

Fortunately eMachines Support lists what the W3502 motherboard chipset is,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3502

Chipset: ATI Radeon XPress 200

Now look for information on ATI's Radeon XPress 200 chipset.
For this we can go back to Wikipedia once more,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ati_radeon_xpress_200

Reading the top sentence in the first paragraph you will note,
".......Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Celeron processors, ......using either a Socket 478 processor socket, or an LGA 775 processor socket."

What isn't stated in the first sentence is that it will also support Intel Core2 processors. That is stated on the right side of the page, in the information box under the subheading - CPU Supported

I wouldn't think anything higher than an older E4400, or E4500 though.
The E4400, and the E4500 use an 800MHz Front Side Bus. So does the E5300 Dual Core.

The information box states that processors with Up To a 1066MHz FSB are supported.
I just don't know if there is a BIOS update needed, or if a BIOS update is available, in case it's needed.

Needed to change the voltage, and multiplier, so that a processor with a 1066MHz FSB can be used.

To summarize:

The ATI XPress 200 motherboard chipset, on your eMachines W3502, will support an Intel Dual Core E5300.

Advise:
Do Not forget to use anti-static precautions. Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out (Short circuit) computer hardware components.

A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component to static shock.

I would advise buying a cheap $6 ESD wrist strap, from some where like Radio Shack, or a similar store, and using it.
Clip the alligator clip to an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the computer case. (Computer unplugged from power)

Barring this, make sure you touch the metal frame of the open computer case, before you reach inside. (Computer unplugged from power)
If you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return touch the metal frame again.

Make Sure the top of the Processor's case is clean, and the bottom of the Heatsink.
I use an old credit card to scrape both surfaces as clean as I can, then follow with Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol.

Usually takes a few dipped Q-tips, as thermal paste is a gooey mess, and the alcohol takes time to break it down.

Isopropyl alcohol is also referred to as Rubbing Alcohol. 91 percent is best, but 70 percent will do. Nix on the 50 percent.

CAUTION!
Isopropyl alcohol is Extremely Flammable! Use in a well ventilated area, with no sparks or flames present.

Use fresh, new thermal paste, never try to reuse old thermal paste, or a thermal pad. Thermal paste properties break down over time, and the thermal paste becomes more of an Insulator, than a Conductor.

Thermal pads are only good for taking off, and flying at the cat.
They're Junk!
(Meooow! Hey watch it dude! You almost hit me with that!)

Thermal paste doesn't have to be Artic Silver 5. A good quality thermal paste, applied correctly, will get you down the road just fine. A 'Mom and Pop' computer repair shop, should have a one processor tube, for around $2.

You Should be okay with the same Heatsink/Fan combo, as the Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 puts out less heat than a Celeron D 352, or around the same amount.

Be sure the inside of the computer sparkles, as well as the Heatsink, processor fan, and the inside of the Power Supply. Use a can or two, of compressed air for computers.

(Celeron D's are not dual core processors. The Pentium D's are)

OMG!! doogie812, quit giving people bad advice. From what you have suggested, you know nothing about computer hardware. You can upgrade the processor in this system and it will not effect the OS one bit, except make it process the data a little quicker. With this system, if you had done any research at all, it only comes with 1GB of memory, you should of suggested to this person to add more memory.

15 K86 011000 671T SUPORTED INTEL I3 PROCESSOR?


No, The 671T has an LGA775 socket and the I3 processor needs (depending on generation) either a LGA1150, 1155, or 1156 socket.
The 671T can support Core 2 Duo/Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron D processors that use the LGA775 socket.

What is deffrence between core i3, and core i5


There's two main differences between them that i can think off the top of my head.
1) The speed at which the processor works (where i5 works faster than i3)2) The number of cores it has.
Cores are like little computers inside the computer itself. The i3 has 2, while the i5 usually has 4. usually the more cores a computer has the better it is at doing background processes.

Cant find upgrade info on cpu for this


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=uk&lc=en&product=4320950

Product information> Product specifications> HP G72-B02SA Notebook PC Product Specifications>

Intel Pentium P6100 CPU (Processor),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Uses the Socket G1 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_G1

"The current CPUs to use this package are the Core i7-6x0M series, the Core i5-4x0M series, the Core i5-5x0M series, the Core i3-3x0M series, and finally the Pentium P6x00 series and Celeron P4x00 series which were released on March 28, 2010. However, not all of these are available for Socket G1, as some of them are only available in a BGA package."

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

Motherboard Chipset not stated on HP Support.

I forgot. This is HP UK Support.
People in the UK are the best, but the UK support information for anything -> BITES!

The Product Number is XF133EA.
Let's try it that way,

https://h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/05/XF133EA.htm

Processor subheading -
Chipset: Intel HM55 chipset

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor support list,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156#Supported_processors

I'll just go back to the G1 processor socket CPU support list.
(CPU = Processor)
Much easier(?)

There is no Front Side Bus. (FSB)
These processors use QPI.
Quick Path Interconnect,

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

Therefore look at the Ram Memory support, and the Voltage range, used by the Intel Pentium P6100; to compare to processors that may be supported; and add to that the processor MUST use a Socket G1 processor socket.

1) Ram Memory support
2) Voltage Range
3) Socket G1 processor socket

Pentium P6100 ->
Supports DDR3 Sdram ram memory at 1066MegaHertz.
It is the 1066MHz to keep in mind here.

Voltage range; .0775 to 1.4 Volts (DC)

Okay, now compare to list of supported Processors, on the CPU-World / Socket G1 article,

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

"Socket G1, or rPGA988A, is a socket for first generation of Nehalem-based mobile microprocessors.

Me: ->FIRST generation of NEHALEM based MOBILE processors.

NOTE* ->
The socket was introduced in September 2009 along with the ->first three Core i7-branded mobile CPUs, and eventually it was used for Core i5, Core i3, mobile Pentium and mobile Celeron families.

Me: In order of technology, or crudely can be stated as, "which is better", the order is;

Intel Celeron
Intel Pentium
Intel Core i3
Intel Core i5
,plus the first three Intel Core i7 processors, that used the Socket G1 processor socket.


NOTE*->
The rPGA988A works with dual- and quad-core chips, built on 45nm and 32nm technologies, and operating at frequencies up to 2.8 GHz.

Me:-> Core technology based on 32NanoMeter, or 45nm.
Up To a 2.8GigaHertz frequency rate. ('Speed')

NOTE*->
The socket supports DDR3 memory with data rates up to 1333 Mhz, and Direct Media Interface. Socket G1 was superceded by socket G2."

Me: Stick with 1066MHz ram memory, and Intel processors that support it.

Moving on..........
Processors supported, going from Core i7 down.

[NOTE* Dealing with a laptop/netbook processor is different than a desktop processor.

You are looking for 'processing power', but also power saving features.
Power saving as in how much power the processor will use.
Mobile processor = Laptop/Netbook processor.
The less power it uses, the better for a Laptop/Netbook.

The battery will last longer.

Therefore it really is up to you.
Balance of processor 'power', and saving battery power ]

Core i7 - 6x0M

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Only 2 use the G1 CPU socket.
Intel Core i7- 620M, and Intel Core i7 - 640M

The rest use the BGA surface mount that has 1288 solder balls.
Explained at end of solution, about the BGA surface mount.

Notice they are Arrandale Core. Also the Arrandale Core is based on the 32nm architecture.
Notice they support DDR3 Sdram that is 1066MHz.

Notice ALSO that it is -> TWO DDR3 Sdram ram memory modules.

THAT, is what you want.
NOT an Intel Core i processor that needs THREE ram memory modules, ('Stick'), in order to operate.
Long dissertation, will include detailed info at end of solution.

You actually need to know the old technology, and compare to the newer Intel Core i technology, to fully understand.

CPU World processor support list also includes Intel Core i7, model 920XM, and Intel Core i7, model 940XM processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Clarksfield.22_.2845_nm.29

To me this = No.
DDR3 Sdram ram memory, but 1333MHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Also voltage range is .0650 to 1.4 Volts.
MAY work, MAY NOT.

BIOS may recognize the processor, and make changes accordingly.
Then again it may not.
BIOS upgrade? I'll pass. Too easy to scre-w up, and also miscommunicate proper procedure.

Stopping for a second;
The Core i technology will 'slap a Pentium around'
It's like comparing the 'grocery getter car' to a fuel dragster.

Core i3 and Core i5 technology has less 'processor power', than a comparable Core i7, but the Core i3, and Core i5 were also designed to use less power. Therefore (Supposedly) more battery life.

The Intel Pentium P6100 is a dual core processor. Two processor cores.

http://ark.intel.com/products/50175

But the Core i7 is essentially a quad core processor.
Four processor cores.
This is because it uses the old HT technology.

Hypertransport Technology.
Two REAL processor cores, and if it is needed Two VIRTUAL processor cores.

Intel Core i7, model 620M; for an example,

http://ark.intel.com/products/43560/Intel-Core-i7-620M-Processor-4M-Cache-2_66-GHz

2.0GHz maximum frequency rate for the Intel Pentium P6100.
2.26GHz for the Intel Core i7-620M

Nothing to write home to Mom about, as far as using 2 processor cores.
But when the 2 virtual processor cores of the i7 kick in, that's when the Pentium P6100 would get lost in the dust.

Instead of having two processor cores operating at 2.0GigaHertz, (Pentium P6100), you have FOUR processor cores operating at 2.66GHz.

Crude example?
Two men digging a ditch. Take them out, and replace with four men.
Which scenario will get the job done faster?

HOWEVER, surfing the internet? Watching a video?
Only 1 or 2 cores are going to kick in.
Playing an intensive game, or running an intensive program?
THEN all 4 cores kick in, and kick sum boot-y.

Lot of prattle I posted. Hope you can make some sense of it.


Ha! I just found this. Here is the 'definitive' CPU Support list.
It is listed in the Compaq Presario CQ72 Notebook PC and HP G72 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide. (Service Manual, really),

Enable hypthreading i3 2120


The Intel Core i3, model 2120 Microprocessor is based on the Nehalem micro-architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nehalem_%28microarchitecture%29

In the old days you had Intel Pentium 4's, that had Hyperthreading Technology. HT.

One REAL processor core operating, and one VIRTUAL processor core.
The Processor teamed up on the task at hand, using TWO processor cores.

Yes, you guessed it. TWO processors.
One REAL, one VIRTUAL.

The Nehalem micro-architecture brought HT back out.

Then the Sandy Bridge micro-architecture came out. Came out to replace the Nehalem micro-architecture,

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

The Intel Core i3 2120 is based on the 32nm Sandy Bridge, micro-architecture.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge#Desktop_platform

Now instead of having TWO processor cores, you can have FOUR with two REAL ones, and two VIRTUAL ones.

FOUR processors is what is essentially being said here.
TWO real ones, TWO virtual ones.

HOWEVER, your load that you are doing;...............

Internet searches...
Business/Office application, or program...
Game...
Video editing...........

Is not enough to use FOUR processor cores. So HT is not enabled at this time.

An aggressive, intensive new game, will click HT on; but who am I to know?

Program that you have multiple applications within it opened?
Running four or more programs?
Running two games at once?

Editing the lunar space program? lol!

Maybe THESE will kick HT on, dunno.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

[Having HT with a processor that has TWO processor cores; is like having an alcohol burning dragster processor.

You don't use it to go to the supermarket ]

[Oh, and by the way;

NO, Intel Core i3 does NOT mean 3 processor cores.

There are TWO.

Processor Core:
Having two processor cores on ONE die chip; means there are TWO processors.
TWO processors contained in that one processor.

HT is kicked on you have FOUR processors ]

Can a Intel Core I3 be installed in a Emachines D725


No. Not the one listed above (socket LGA 1156) You need to look for a mobile CPU (possibly mobile 479). They differ physically and architecturally. Even then you need to establish that the CPU is removable and verify BIOS has support for upgraded chip. Talk to your local repair shop for finale decision.

I have a intel core 2 duo processor can i buy intel DH67VR-B3 motherboard can both procesor and mothrboard b compatible? plz help immediately


i found the product guide for DH67VR i'm not sure if that covers the last 2 characters in the model, however they say this under processor:


Intel Core i7, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i3, and
Intel Pentium processors in an LGA1155 socket:

So I don't think that motherboard will work with that processor, unless the -B3 version of this model has a different socket some intel core 2 duo processors have these socket types: PLGA775, PBGA479, PPGA478, So I would need more information about your processor also. but none of the intel core 2 duo processors seem to fit that motherboard socket.

Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Hi!

Sorry you can't, intel pentium P series has different socket than Core i3 series.
And also, notebook is lowcost build exactly for the slower processor, putting there stronger processor will produce more heat, and possible overheating.

There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.

Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.

I hope this answered your question.
