Question about ASUS P4V8X-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

P4v8x-mx Alright, I am looking to squeeze everything my current motherboard has to offer out of it... after hours of research I have come to the conclusion that the highest speed processor my board can handle is 3.2ghz. well I found a 3.2ghz processor with the stepping code "SL7AA" it claims to be extreme and has a L3 cache of 2 Mb. Will my motherboard support this CPU? Would the L3 cache even get used? By the way my socket size is 478 and I am currently running a Celeron D 3.06ghz so I would expect a considerable increase in performance. Is this a correct assumption?

yeah possibly, providing you,ve got the sys-bus speed to go with it, and plenty of Matched Speed RAM.
And a good quality heat-sink paste, heatsink and fan.
You,ll be thrashing the capicitors to the max, with everything running. but you,ll get 3-6 months probably.

Were can i find driver for my motherboard, is asus p4v8x-mx, and i have windows 7 ultimate Thanks

You can find drivers at the asus site. However, If you select "motherboards" from the "Windows7 supported product models" list on the left side of the page, you will find the p4v8x-mx is not listed. There are no W7 drivers available.

You can still find drivers for supported OSes with the search function on the page. Pick "motherboard" from the product drop-down menu, then pick "socket478" from select series. Pick your model from the "select models" menu, and finally choose the operating system.

If you want to upgrade your system to W7, you'll need a newer motherboard as well.
