Question about Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor

1 Answer

Upgrade ram and maybe processor!

I have a msi 915glm-v mother board micro atx
pentium 4 cpu 2.66 ghz from control panel, system info
think it is a intel i 915G(ddr1) found this on a website.

Wanted to upgrade from 512 ddr pc3200 400mhz ram to a gig, but thought that if it was painless I could upgrade the processor also.

I did not want to have to loose info or reload info on the computer. This is why I did not want to change the motherboard. In addittion did not want to drop lots of money into the pc. Wife doesn't want to replace my desktop, doesnt't want to spend the money. Her laptop works fine, but I like my large sound system and 19" monitor. The system will not play a cd and let me do several other things at the same time. Wired ethernet connection windows xp pro. Do not want to upgrade op system either, very happy with it.
Do you have to change things to upgrade processor, or is it painless?

Please respond to Danbudy@yahoo.com

Thanks, Dan.

Hey, da,

I would double the RAM first with the same kind, then watch both PC and wife :), what happens. If they both smile, go for the processor but don't jump too high on the MoBo. Check the range on the board for highest speed clock before you buy a processor.

You shouldn't have to reinstall your OS, but back up your important files just in case.

Good luck Dan.

Want to upgraded Pentium 4 2.8 GHz to Pentium 4 3.2E GHz


why not go with a faster MB and CPU combo?
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.

If new processor supports your old motherboard then you will upgrade system with your old motherboard.

If its not supported to new mother board then you have to buy new motherboard to upgrade your system.

What mother board fit the Sony VAIO VGX-XL2


A micro ATX or mATC motherboard will not fit any Sony VAIO VGX-XL* model HTPC. These systems have a non-standard form factor, proprietary motherboard built for Sony by ASUStek (based on their ASUS P5 boards).

Micro ATX or mATX boards do not match the mounting screw pattern, and the case and rear panel would require major modifications (and many internal components removed and not reinstalled) for any replacement motherboard. The Power Supplty is also non-standard 18-pin version of an ITX low profile model power supply.

There are a few upgrades which can be made to a stock XL2 (up to 4GB RAM, better low-profile video/graphics card, DVD optical drive replacement with Blu-ray, a SSD system OS/BOOT drive), but the motherboard, power supply, BIOS and and OEM Pentium D processor cannot be upgraded (because of a locked BIOS microcode). The XL3 model offers a few more opportunities for upgrade (up to 8GB RAM, upgradeable Core2 Duo processor options) but the rest of the restrictions apply (motherboard, power supply not upgradeable).
