I have a dell 5150 with a P4 HT.  I haven't been able to identify the motherboard in it, (could run cpuid but the motherboard is fried).  The only thing I need to know at this point, is the socket type.  All the CPUs i have seen have external connectors that push into the socket.  This CPU has no "legs", nor does the motherboard have holes to accept them, the cpu just sits on the socket and then clamped on.  

I am confusing myself just by typing this, but hopefully someone will read this and understand what I'm getting at.  I just need to know what that socket tyoe is.

Hey There,

Remove the heatsink and the socket type will be writen on the CPU socket itself...

But the socket you describe is a 775.

Are you sure its a P4 HT??? Could you take a pic of the socket and i could tell you straight away.

Using everyones input, i have determined it is an LGA775.  I went to the Wiki link that Kavo attached, and read further.  After reading that I was able to identify all the markings on the chip.  It is a P4 HT, spec # SL729 which (per the wiki link) is a LGA729.

So, thank you all.
