Will a P4 processor w/a 533 or 800 fsb operate in a 400 fsb mobo?
Posted on 2006-11-29
Hi Guys! I'm back & just as stupid as ever!! My problem is that I have a Compaq Presario 6000T circa 2003. The power supply & processor have both failed. I am having a very difficult time finding a replacement 2.53gh P4 processor for a Micro-Star MS-6577 motherboard with a 400 mb fsb. My instincts say that I can install a 533 or 800 fsb P4 processor in this socket 478 beauty as I have used 100's in 66's & 133's in 100's with no apparrent problems. I just want to make damn sure I get this right. This mobo is very particular about what it will accept. I have a couple of socket 478 2.13gh Celerons, but they aren't compatible. The only 2.53gb's I can find are at least 533's. I suspect that this was one of Compaq's proprietary job lot mobo's. Can you help me?
