Just to fill you in here, at the moment my Intel D865GLC motherboard has an Intel 2.4GHz P4 socket 478 processor with a 512Kb cache. Also my BIOS is updated to the latest .P25 release. Now after buying 2Gb of Ram for my system, I wondering if I should bung a newer CPU in too. Here's the query ....
I'm wondering if this board will take 3Ghz P4 with a 1MB cache ??
My mainboard has a number AAC28906 - 403 but on the intel site here
The notes on the right hand side imply that due to MY mobo's last three AA digits being .... 403 it does not support the 1Mb cache CPU's.
It seems the only difference here is the Level 2 cache being 512Kb's larger at 1MB.
Will my mobo actualy take the 3 Gig CPU with the 1MB cache or will I waste my money or blow something up?
Or have I got to stick to P4 CPU's using a 512Kb cache?
Many thanks for your help
