Re: emachine T4150 CPU upgrade

Your processor is a Pentium 4 processor that uses there are 3 different type of sockets for Pentium processors. Socket 423, socket 478, and the latest one is socket 775.
Based on the information here:

Your MoBo has a Socket 478 and since it only support 400MHz bus, then your maximum upgrade is 2.0MHz, because all other devices faster than that, need higher bus speed that your Mother Board does not support.

Hope you find the answer useful.

Best regards,

Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors

  • Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)

CPU upgrade for Compaq SR1220NX Desktop Computer

The specs for this machine state that it is a motherboard with
"Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors
Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 2.8 GHz
Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)"
In other words, any CPU that is not socket 478 ( a fairly old socket now) will not even fit on the board. You do not mention your current CPU so you need to compare it with the spec above to see if you can improve it. It is an old machine/motherboard, so your money might be better going towards a motherboard or system box upgrade.

Looking for a good plug and play cpu to upgrade from the sempron in the emachine t3616

Memory is RAM, not storage space like the hard drive.

The fastest CPU that fits socket S1 is the TL-68, but I wouldn't put it in your emachine because of heat and power consumption. Maybe give a TL-60 a try? They are only $5 on eBay.

Can I upgrade e 4100 processor?

Based on the motherboard specifications, and looking at the specs that the Gateway lists for the unit, A Pentium 4 processor socket 478 at 2.8 GHz is the maximum for that machine. Gateway specs show exactly that is what is installed on the E4100. Unfortunately, most pre-built machines have little or no CPU upgradeability since they are built to specs.

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.

Can I upgrade my 2.8 Ghz CPU with the 3 2 GHz dual core 775socket BX80571E5800 CPU into my N1996 acer 671t desktop motherboard, and can I upgrade my 553/ddr2 ram with a 2nd 2G ddr2 800/ RAM (max 4x 1 G...

as long as the socket is exactly the same as the processor you are trying to upgrade to you should be good. As far as memory goes you can use a faster ddr2 chip but you have to find out what the maximum capacity is on each slot. Most newer computers can support 1gb+ per slot. Always make sure you install ram in pairs and in the proper slots.

Cpu upgrade dell dimension 5100

Hi, according to the Dell website you have a LGA775 socket on your motherboard. Therefore, you can only buy processors that fit into this socket. Here is a list of some offered by Intel that will work: Celeron D 325 2.53 GHz Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz Celeron D 335 2.8 GHz Celeron D 340 2.93 GHz Pentium4 520 2.8 GHz Pentium4 530 3.0 GHz Pentium4 540 3.2GHz Pentium4 550 3.4 GHz Pentium4 560 3.6 GHz Pentium4 570 3.8 GHz The processors that won't work are the ones that are not compatible with this socket. Everytime you look up a cpu it will tell you which socket it is designed for. To buy a cpu you will need to decide: The brand you want. The speed of the cpu that you want. Extras i.e. Hyperthreading, etc. How much you are willing to pay for it. Then you can narrow your search as you stick within your limits. Let me know if you have more questions. Good Luck
