Upgrade CPU In my SAMBA SM-1845

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.

    I put a P4 2.40GB 533FSB 512 slot 478 in the SAMBA SM-1845 When I powered up the system the CPU fan ran for about one second and the system didn't even start to boot up. The same thing happened when I tried the P4 1.70 400FSB 256. The P4 2.40GB CPU was pulled out of my other computer, and it was running fine before I replaced it with a P4HT 3.00. Unless the SAMBA SM-1845 doesn't have a 478 slot, but according to everything I've read it should have a slot 478. Also the CPUs dropped right in place seemed like a prefect fit. Does anybody have any information on the SAMBA SM-1845?

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

Memory settings for ddr


http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/ECS/K7AMA/

Since the Processor Front Side Bus (FSB) support is 200 or 266MegaHertz (MHz), the ram memory will be DDR Sdram at either 100Megahertz or 266MHz.

That is PC1600 and PC2100, respectively.

2GB's maximum TOTAL amount for motherboard.
1GB per ram memory slot - Maximum

If you have a Socket A (Socket 462) AMD processor with a 200MHz FSB, I suggest DDR Sdram at 100MHz. (PC1600)

AMD processor with 266MHz Front Side Bus = either PC1600, or PC2100. I would go with PC2100.

Voltage in BIOS Setup is 2.5 Volts. That is is the JEDEC standard voltage, for DDR Sdram.
Ram timings will be dependent upon what the ram memory supports.

IF you have just ONE ram memory module ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1.
(DIMM 1)
This is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

"When it comes to innovative motherboards ECS is not a company that first comes to mind. Not since the days of the K7AMA that offered DDR266 and PC133 memory options for AMD's K7 line of processors has ECS released a motherboard that has filled a gapping hole in the PC hardware market space. Lets just hope that the failure rate of the 945GCD-M is nothing like the failure prone K7AMA."

I am tryin to upgrade my processor on my 4000783 gateway motherboard need to change my fsb speed and dont know how


You cannot change your fsb. You need to upgrade to a cpu with a fsb speed that your board can support. Once you install the new cpu your bios will set the fsb to the higher setting of your new cpu if your board supports it. If you have your board specs it will tell you something like supports fsb 1066/800. That would mean you could upgrade to a supported 1066 fsb cpu. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
