Socket 478 is a very old socket type, it's been around for nearly a decade. The only processors that work with this socket are Intel's Northwood Pentium 4 and Celeron processors, which are now far surpassed in performance. I would definitely recommend buying a new motherboard for whatever you were going to use this one for. If you are set on this motherboard, however, read on.

Many computer hardware companies have stopped carrying Socket 478 processors. You will most likely have to buy one second-hand. A quick search on Amazon will give you a few buying options (all used) for around $20-$30 US.

Due to the age of the processors, you will probably need to purchase a heat sink seperately. This heatsink is $20, will fit Socket 478, and has very good reviews, but of course feel free to use any heatsink as long as it fits Socket 478: http://bit.ly/hk6yZ5

If you also need memory, be sure it is DDR 333/266, as this is the ONLY type of memory that the 2 memory slots on motherboard will take (maximum 2GB of memory). You can find list of DDR 333 memory in varying capacities here: http://amzn.to/fOGbeV

My asrock 775vm800 restart automaticlly please help meee


Plz check the CPU temperature in BIOS>>Hardware Monitor if it is >70 it the problem with your CPU heatsink fan fixation problem. You need to clean the processor die and heatsink contact with IPA (isopropyl alcohol) and apply small amount of heatsink cement in heatsink fan and reinsert heat sink. Make sure all the heatsink fixing studs inserted in motherboard properly, it can be inspected by the bottom side of the motherboard

Asrock ge pro-m2 whats the best spec i can upgrade to?


According to the downloadable manual on the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.asrock.com/MB/manual.asp?Model=GE%20PRO-M2

the maximum RAM supported is 2GB, and it is a Socket 478 CPU interface.

Since you don't have the "GE PRO-HT" motherboard,
you cannot use a "hyper-threading" CPU.
So, you can use any non-hyper-threading Pentium/Celeron that has a Socket 478 interface.

K7VM3


Hi,

An ASRock K7VM3.motherboard is a socket A (462) board specifically for the AMD processors. To my experience, these boards (due to age and period of usage) are prone to:
  • bulging/leaky capacitors of the high current regulators near the CPU;
  • the heatsink tends to be dislodged/misaligned causing overheated processor;
  • loose memory slots causing defective memories.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Processor FSB


no, the proc will lose speed. the FSB is a part of the equation that determines the processors speed. A lower FSB speed will mean reduced performance.
