SOURCE: CPU Upgrade

Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)

SOURCE: upgrading AMD cpu

There's two versions of the 5200+, one rated at 89 watts, and the other rated at 65 watts. 89 watt version: ADA5200CSBOX or ADA5200IAA6CS, F2 stepping, 1.30V/1.35V 65 watt version: ADO5200CZBOX or ADO5200IAA6CZ, F3 stepping, 1.20V/1.25V Make sure it starts with ADO, not ADA. There's still a lot of the 89W version in the channel, and not many of the new one. NewEgg currently has the F2 (89W) stepping in-stock for $124, and the model you want will likely be priced similarly, when available. They currently have (in-stock) a 5000+ for $120, that is 65W. If you want it ASAP, go with the 5000+ (ADO5000DDBOX). I would recommend getting the retail-box version, which comes with a new heatsink/fan and warranty; this assures you that the heatsink/fan is an appropriate match for the CPU. Note, depending on what RAM you have installed, this may bottleneck the CPU. For full potential, make sure you're running DDR2 PC-5300 (667mhz) memory. You should be able to get a 2GB "dual-channel kit" (matched pair of 1GB sticks) for around $60-70. Definitely run at least 2GB total for Vista; unfortunately, your motherboard cannot go past 2GB. Similarly, you may want to get a new video card (PCI Express x16), but don't bother going all out here.. the system will never realize the full potential. I would target $100-150 for a video card.

I want to upgrade the processor to an i7


Why would you want to replace the CPU in a laptop?
First you would need to buy an i7 mobile processor but is your current cpu an i3 and if so, what socket does it plug into? G1, G2, G3? You would need to find out and purchase the proper i7 cpu - saw an i7 on ebay, socket G2 at 2.9GHz for $160.
Next you would have to take apart your current laptop (all the way) to get at the CPU - wait, that may have to come first in order to determine which socket you need. If you can do it yourself, great - if not add another $150 at least for labor costs. So now around the $300 mark.
Dell has a refurbished (meaning it has already been fixed of the bugs) here - http://www.dfsdirectsales.com/StoreCatalog/ctl641/cp43622/si6541786/cl1/dell_latitude_e6410_4gb_ram_250gb_hdd?offset=0&isLaptop=Y
for $425 - so why invest in upgrading a laptop when you can sell the one you have and buy a more recent model to replace it?
Good luck either way.

Dc5100 processor upgrade


NO!

Two Netburst based Processor cores on the SAME chipset?

Get outta' here!

When did they come up with that?





OH, I'M JUS KIDDIN'!

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12145_na/12145_na.HTML

The HP Compaq dc5100 Desktop PC uses an Intel 915GV motherboard chipset.

Since we know that the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; handles the Faster capabilities of a computer;
i.e., Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics; let's look at the Intel 915GV chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

No sir/ma'am.
The Intel 915GV motherboard chipset only handles Single Core processors;
Intel Pentium 4,
and,
Intel Celeron,
and,
Intel Celeron D.
(With a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB)

The Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron#Prescott-256

"The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core. It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers) Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is Not a dual core processor."

Yeah, I know. I'm just a 'Ray of Sunshine'.

You know you can pick up a motherboard pretty cheap nowadays, that WILL support the lowly Pentium D, for not much money.

Problem is you will need to replace Ram Memory also.

By the time you get a motherboard chipset that supports dual core Processors (CPU), you are going to be using DDR2 Sdram ram memory, instead of the DDR Sdram ram memory you are using now.

OK, Motherboard, CPU, and Ram Memory.

Oh, the Power Supply. Won't do either.
240 Watt unit, or 300 Watt unit?

Sure.............OK.

Back in the day those Power Supply's were made, Power Supply manufacturer's were 'fudging' the actual maximum rated Wattage.

True Wattage was more like 60 to 70 percent of what was stated.
Why?
SOLD more Power Supply's.

240 Watts?
Simply divide by 10. = 24.
For 60 percent, take 60 times 24. = 144 Watts
70 percent? 168 Watts.

300 Watts?
60 percent is 180 Watts.
70 percent is 210 Watts.

I wouldn't try to run a Barbie doll with that low a Wattage, of Power Supply. (Barbie doll? What?)

Need at least a decent 350 Watt power supply, from today's manufacturers.
80 percent constant duty cycle, for most good units; or higher.

So...............
Max out the Intel Pentium 4 CPU.

4GB's of 533MHz DDR Sdram ram memory.
(PC4200, or PC4300. Depends on the manufacturer as to how they name it)

By the time you spend that much money, you may as well buy another Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, and Power Supply.

Yes, may as well buy a better computer.

I know. Quit trying to cheer you up.

Around here we have Craigslist, and Ebay, for two places.
Could pick up a better computer, for around the same money, as you would pay for all the upgrade parts above.

Which is better? Upgrade the Processor, or upgrade the Ram Memory/
For the better 'Bang for the Buck', upgrade the Ram Memory.

The CPU (Processor) has a built-in cache.
L1 cache, and L2 cache. (Newer CPU's have an L3 cache)

The Cache is a small memory area for the CPU.
It is the FIRST memory area the Processor (CPU) reads.
This is because it operates at the same frequency rate, as the CPU does.
(Frequency rate = 'Speed'. Operates at the same 'Speed')

Next inline is the Ram Memory.
Ram Memory -> typically, operates at half of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB)

This is why upgrading Ram Memory is a good idea.

It isn't so much of getting Ram Memory, that operates at a higher frequency rate ('Speed'), as it is to have MORE ram memory.

Example;
PC3200 compared to PC4200.
4GB's of PC3200 is better than 2GB's of PC4200.

(DDR Sdram at 400MHz = PC3200)

Moving on............

Motherboard chipset:

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The motherboard chipset for your computer, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

{Motherboards that support the Intel Core i technology, (Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, etc), do NOT use this motherboard chipset technology. Neither do some of the AMD CPU's }

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

As stated previously, the Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer;
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

The AGP technology, and the PCI Express technology; ARE high-speed graphics.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics.

The slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.
1) PCI Bus / Integrated Graphics.

(Another term for Integrated Graphics, is OnBoard Graphics. A term that seems to have gotten lost.
It explains better; ON the motherBOARD )

2) IDE Bus
3) SATA Bus
4) USB Bus
5) Ethernet
6) Audio (Sound)

Point?
Look to see what the Northbridge chip is, as I have shown you; and you'll get a good idea of what Processor (CPU) support is.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

HOW TO I KNOW THE BUS SPEED


You know 'Upgradation' is not a word, right? lol!

How about Upgrade ability?

The Intel D101GGC motherboard has a Front Side Bus MAXIMUM frequency rate of 800MegaHertz. (FSB max rate is 800MHz)

Therefore, it depends on the PROCESSOR that is being used, as to what frequency rate of Ram Memory that can be used.

[ Excuse me. Frequency Rate = 'Speed'. The layman's term ]

Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the frequency rate, of the FRONT SIDE BUS for the Processor.

Have a Processor that has a maximum FSB frequency rate of 800MHz?
You can use Ram Memory that operates at a frequency rate of 400MHz, or 333MHz. (Do recommend using PC3200, however)

Have a Processor that has a Maximum frequency rate of 533MHz?
You can use DDR Sdram at 333MHz. (PC2700)

The Intel D101GGC uses DDR Sdram ram memory.
DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz = PC2700
DDR Sdram at 400MHz = PC3200

There are TWO ram memory expansion slots.
The MAXIMUM for EACH ram memory slot is 1GigaByte. (1GB)
The Maximum TOTAL Amount for the motherboard is 2GB.

ALWAYS make SURE you have a ram memory module ('Stick'), in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
A Processor reads Slot 1 first. If there is no ram memory in Slot 1, the computer will not work.

How to know what the FSB is of the processor, you have currently installed?
I suggest using the free CPU-Z,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

The above link shows the default screen for CPU-Z. The screen that automatically comes up when you open CPU-Z.

There are tabs across the top that you click on, to get other information. (Caches, Mainboard, Memory, SPD, Graphics, About)
More on this in a moment.

Let's look at the Processor example shown.

1) Name: Intel Core i7 860
It is an Intel Core i7 processor, and the model number is 860,

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

2) Code Name: Lynnfield
Based on the Lynnfield technology, and the 45nm architecture.
(nm stands for NanoMeter. One billionth of a Meter)

3) Package: Socket 1156 LGA
Uses an LGA1156 processor socket,

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

4) Technology: 45nm (Already stated by looking at the Wikipedia link)

5) Core Voltage: 1.216 V
Looking at the Wikipedia link, you can see this processor's voltage range is 0.65 to 1.4 Volts.
Or stated as 0.650 to 1.400 Volts. It is -> DC Voltage.

The 1.216 Voltage stated, is what that Processor is using now.
It is real time information.

6) Specification: Intel (Registered trademark) Core (TradeMark) i7 CPU.

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply -> Processor, for short.

8) 860 = Intel Model Number
@2.80GHz stands for 2.80GigaHertz. The MAXIMUM frequency rate that the processor is designed to operate at.

9) Family, Model, Stepping, Ext.Family, Ext.Model, and Revision, are Intel technology factors, for this processor.
What Family of Processors it was developed from, what Model design, what stepping it uses, what Revision of design, and etc.

10) Instruction: The Instruction Sets, or instruction set architecture, it uses.
The basic MMX, and SSE, and variations of the SSE instruction sets, and further development of Instruction Sets through the years.

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

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

11) Forget about the Cache column. What you are concerned with is under the Clocks (Core#0) subheading.

I just stated the above, so you might have a better understanding, of what you are looking at.
(Also it may spark something inside you, to join a Research and Development team, and design future computer technology. Who knows, right? )

12) Core Speed:
Again with the 'Speed'. It is Frequency Rate.
This is the maximum 'speed' that the Processor will operate at.
(Maximum frequency rate)

When you have CPU-Z going, you can watch this frequency rate, change. It is showing Real Time information. AS IT HAPPENS.

13) Multiplier: The multiplier times the internal clock 'speed', of the Processor.

Forget about the information shown. It is for an Intel Core i7 processor, and this processor operates on a much different technology, than the Intel processor in your computer.

What you are concerned with is shown in the box, to the right of -
Bus Speed.

A) If you have a Processor with a 533MHz FSB, the number shown will be 133.2
Why?
Because Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
133.2 times 4 = 532.8
This is rounded up to 533, or 533MHz.

If you have an Intel processor with a Front Side Bus of 800MHz, the number in the box will be 200.6
200MHz (Rounded down)

Processor with an 800MHz FSB? Use PC3200.
(DDR Sdram at 400MHz)

Processor with a 533MHz FSB? Use PC2700.
(DDR Sdram at 333MHz)

I have an Aptiva by IBM that I am trying to find out the size of the processor and how much memorry it has


Suggest you download (Free) the tiny program, CPU-Z, from CPUID.com

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Bear in mind that the example shown on the CPU-Z page, is for a newer Intel Core i7 model.

These processors do Not use a Front Side Bus. (FSB)
Where it states QPI is Quick Point Interconnect.

For the older processors this will state Rated FSB instead.
FSB is Front Side Bus.
Tells you what Frequency Rate ('Speed') that the processor FSB, is operating at THAT moment.

(All info is Real Time. Watch the Core Speed change)

Looking at the GUI example on the CPU-Z page, observe the tab that states CPU.

When the program is first opened, the Processor (CPU) tab is automatically opened.

Here you can see very detailed information on the Processor.
Main things to look at are;

1) Name: Manufacturer name and the Model Number

2) Code Name: This name will help you differentiate what processor you are looking at. One of the things that is specific TO THAT processor.

3) Package: Essentially tells you the processor socket that is used.

4) Core Voltage: The optimum voltage the Processor will operate on.

It is DC voltage.
There is a voltage Range the processor will operate in, but the range is VERY SMALL.

Depends on the processor, but 2/10ths above, or 2/10ths below, is an average example ( .2 )

5) Rated FSB:

This part of what you need to know, IF you are looking at upgrading the Processor.
The rest of what you need to know, is what Motherboard Chipset is used.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.
The terms are used alternatively, as either Chip, or Chipset, also.

For example, the motherboard chipset is actually two Chipsets.
Or Chips.
The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

(For the technology used by the motherboard of the IBM Aptiva)

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
The Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

High-speed graphics being the AGP, or PCI-Express technology.
A graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is Not
High-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

1) Anything to do with the PCI Bus.
(Such as a graphics card installed in a PCI slot )
2) Same with the IDE Bus
3) SATA bus
4) USB bus
5) Ethernet
6) Audio (Sound)

Can I upgrade a HP Pavilion a620n processor?


1) You need to know what processor socket is on the motherboard.
2) You need to know what the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is.
3) There may be a BIOS upgrade needed, in order to support the processor upgrade.

OR, alternatively there may be a CPU (Processor) Support list.
Let's go to HP Support, and find out,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

Left-click on the purple middle 'box', with Product Support and Troubleshooting in it.
In the box that is under the heading - Enter a product name/number, left-click in the box.

Type Pavilion a620n. (Pavilion is an HP line. HP Support doesn't need HP put in the box)
Now go to the right of the box, and left-click on Search.
Give it a second, and the main support page will come up, for the Pavilion a620n Desktop PC.

Left-click on Product Information. Left-click on Product specifications in blue.
In the list left-click on -
Motherboard Specifications - A7V8X-LA (Kelut)

If you scroll down there is an illustration, and photo of the Pavilion a620n's motherboard.
Note in the Illustration that the processor socket is a Socket 462.
Also is known as Socket A,

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

The Socket A, or also known as Socket 462, is for AMD processors - Only.
Scrolling back up the page we see what CPU's (Processors), are supported.

Look to the right of the heading - CPU
Look at what maximum approved processors, are supported, under the heading - Maximum approved processors:

The maximum, or best, CPU your motherboard will support, is an AMD Athlon XP 3200+.
The one model that is based on the Barton Core, and has a Front Side Bus of 400MegaHertz. (FSB = 400MHz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors#Athlon_XP_.22Barton.22_.28Model_10.2C_130_nm.29

Look down on the left side until you arrive at - Athlon XP 3200+,
and go across to the Part Number - AXDA3200DKV4E

This is the best Athlon XP 3200+
Why?

You'll notice that the frequency rate ('Speed'), is higher for the Part Number AXDA3200DKV4D model.
2333MegaHertz.
(Can also be stated as 2.3GigaHertz. It is rounded off. 2.3GHz)

However look at the Front Side Bus 'speed'. (Frequency Rate)
It's 333MHz for the AXDA3200KV4D.

Although the frequency rate for the KV4E is lower, the FSB is higher.
400MHz.

Think of the Front Side Bus (FSB) as being an 'Information Highway'.
It transfers information from the Processor (CPU), to the Northbridge chip. (And vice-versa)

The faster a frequency rate the FSB can operate at, means the more information it will be able to transfer back, and forth.

Crude example a 4 lane highway to a 2 lane highway. Which will transfer traffic back, and forth at a larger rate?

The increase in FSB frequency rate, from 333MHz to 400MHz,
makes a BIG difference.

Increase in the Processor's frequency rate of 133MHz, (2200MHz to 2333MHz), means Nada.
Not enough to write home to Mom about.

Cpu speed for ddr 400 ram


cpu speed has nothing to do with ram. they are completely independant. ram speed is important to the FSB (front serial bus) this is the speed at which your motherboard communicates with the devives attached to it. cpu speed refers to how fast a cpu can process info. or how fast it "thinks". most motherboards have the capability of upgrading cpu's. your mobo (motherboard will support the following cpu's:
any pentium 4 up to 3.0 ghz
it supports the following ram
ddr (nott ddr 2 or 3) up to 2 gigs (1 gig each slot) of 533mhz speed (or less)
it also supports up to 2 gigs of sdram either pc133 or pc100
you are using 400 speed ram as you stated i would upgrade to a 533 speed ram as it will be faster, but this is not necessary. as for the cpu just get any P4 (pentium 4) that is 3.0 ghz or less and it will work.

First to awnser your question yes the Pentuim 3.2 will fit the MB as long as yours is a 800 Mhz Bus speed. And the Board can be configured for the proper clock speed. I would also buy a new CPU fan and heatsink greese b4 you install this CPU. Thee are so many cheap CPU MB Combos out there its almost cheaper to just replace both and get a much faster system.
