Question about ASUS A8V-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Compatibility I'm upgrading my system and can't find anything about processor compatilbilty. I currently am running a single core and want to upgrade to a duel core. I'm buying the Antec Nine Hundred caseing with a Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB ATX V2.2 500W Power Supply. Before I buy these, I was gona try and see about getting a duel core processor at the same time. The offered duel core is a Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66Hz LGA 775 Duel-Core Processor Model BX80557E6750. I'm not sure what this MB is compatible with. Any info is extremely greatful.

A8V-MXs are built for AMD processors. You will need a board made for Intel processors if you want to purchase the above processor. If you want to stick with Intel and Asus check out the P5 series of boards. If not, buy an AMD chip...I've had AMD in almost every one of my computers, laptops and desktops.

Good luck.

Is it possible to upgrade the processor for the sony vaio pcg 81114l

most likely this cannot be done, the sockets for the processors have changed twice since then. I don't think you would see a great prefprmace change if you could. You might thim=nk about upgrading to a more powerful core I7 from that generation, but you would need to find out which mother board you have and which processors it supports. Unless you are skilled in laptop repair, I would pass on the upgrade.

I just purchased a new Acer Aspire AS7741G-6426 Laptop. I want to upgrade from 4GB memory to 8GB memory. I need to know what brand and specs to look for.

Just refer to your laptop manual. If your manual got lost go to the  acer website and find your product and download the manual. .

when upgrading your memory you have to consider the following:

the processor: if your processor has 4gb compatibility mem you can upgrade upto 6 to 8gb.

                      take note that you must not exceed to 8gb or else your processor might be damage.

                      get the processor speed: example core 2 i3 processor, 1.0GHZ-the frequency.

the Memory or RAM(random access memory): get ther specification: example is DDR1 or DDR3

                                                                     PC133 or PC 400. Thats all.

Note: your current memory must have the same memory module(example PC400,PC 133)  or else it wont work.if your going to upgrade your current 4gb PC400 you have to add 4gb memory in PC400 module also.

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Duo core motherboards will not support the bus speed or the power output to power on that processor. You need to upgrade the motherboard with the new processor.

I don't have a problem. I just need to know what kind of motherboard my PC has. its a HP Pavilion dv7.1135nr . thank you

I am guessing you are asking because you want to upgrade it?

If not, download this free program, and it will tell you all the info you want to know about your computer: CPU-Z here:

Okay, well you have an AMD based DV7,
The 780G chipset is among the latest from AMD. That chipset supports the Turion ultra processors.
Your system may be running slow because your cpu is running at 500MHz instead of 2Ghz.
You can upgrade your processor to any RM/ZM/QL turion processor.

The processor in your system is socket S1
Your current cpu is a RM-70, 2.0Ghz dual core, 1mb L2, and 31 watt TDP
The RM-74 would be an upgrade to 2.2Ghz dual core, 1mb L2, and 35 watt TDP
However your best upgrade at the moment is the ZM-86,
The ZM-86 is 2.4Ghz Dual core, 2mb L2, and 35 watt TDP

The ZM processors are going for around $200 on ebay
I do not think the 400MHz upgrade is going to be worth $200.

Upgrade from single core processor to duo core

You cannot upgrade to a dual core processor using this motherboard as this motherboard is a socket 478 (older version) instead of LGA775. If you want to upgrade to a dual core processor, you will have to get a new Mobo as well.
