laptop proc compatible in desktop?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've salvaged a 2.8 GHz Pentium 4, Model: SL6PF, out of a laptop. The socket is marked at RmPGA478MN. Can I use this proc in a desktop socket 478 motherboard?

if by the corner with the gold notch, the last 2 pins arent there then yes you can use it in a normal 478 mobo

if there are 2 pins missing at diagonal to eachother then no

but i think there werent any mobile 478s that wetn to 2.8, so my guess is that its a normal 478 proc

Thanks pyro, that was everything I needed to know. It does in fact have the two prongs missing in one corner. You're the man.
