Upgrading CPU


Probably nothing. If your system works, I would not concern myself greatly with this small detail. The system indicates a 3.4 GHz cpu installed. Your software may misidentify some of the features of your Prescott.

648FX-A Motherboard doesn't seem to work with P4 3.0Ghz


looking up the motherboard online shows that it supports the 3.0Ghz processors but only the nothwood ones, not the prescott ones. and only up to 800Mhz side bus.

suport page:
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=323&MenuID=69&LanID=0

Hope this helps, sorry if your cpu is a prescott, if it is a northwood RMA it for a new one.

looks like you limited to the p4 Prescott, this is a p4 list of the cpu support from asus. I also looked at their bios update page and found no bios improvement. if you can move to the 775 platform ,you can move from p4. otherwise, the p4's are still  good . I had the cpu that is the 2nd one down. 3.2ghz oc'd to 3.8ghz full time with a max of 4.0ghz on air[775 platform] quad-pumped gave me a 1001.3mhz FSB
