Question about FIC Samba SM-1845 (SM1845GV) Barebone
I read in a review about the SAMBA SM_1845 that it could take P4 2.4GB 512, 533 FSB slot 478. I also have a P4 1.7GB 256, 400FSB. They said it ran good with out any problems. Can this be done if so do I have to change the bios or jumpers? Also, I never received a manual or any papers with it.
Hi, as long as both chips are slot 478 it should work fine, you wont need to change any bios or jumpers, just open up the computer, remove the heatsink, lift the lever and remove the CPU.
Insert new processor.
you will need thermal grease at this point, you need to apply a little amount onto the cpu, and make sure the old thermal paste is removed from the heatsink and then refit the heatsink & fan.
other option is fit the new cpu and purchase a new heatsink & fan, they usually come with the thermal grease, a new heatsink will cost about £10 or themal grease by itself will cost about 2-3 pounds.
just make sure you have new thermal paste before you remove the heatsink as the processor will get damaged otherwise..
Hope this helps
