Question about MSI 645E Max Motherboard
Hello hope you can help i have a msi 645e max mother board pentium 4 at the moment i have a 1.6ghz p4 socket 478 cpu but want to know if i can use a 3ghz p4 socket 478 as the manual i have only states upto 2.2ghz about not yet tested ? but the board is about 2 years old so im hopeing its been tested with a higher chip now if you can help please email me andy [email protected] thank you
If your manual states a max of 2.2GHZ then, take it as that, when your board was made the bios and bus speeds would be set at the maximum to run a 2.2GHZ, not a 3GHZ, also the heat sink and fan may not be enough to cool the processor. The only way that a 3GHZ would run was if you updated the bios and personally i would not recommend it. You would be better advised updating the board and processor as a package ot fitting more memory if the pc is not used for gaming or high end video editing.
