Upgrading CPU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm thinking of upgrading my CPU. I currently have a Pentium 4 Prescott and I'm looking at the Core 2 E6750. As far as I can tell they are both socket LGA 775 so I shouldn't need a new mother board, correct? Is there anything else that I've overlooked?

Your motherboard might not support it,so you should check to make sure that it is at your motherboard manufacturers website.

Here's my mother board info. via PC Wizard 2007

General Information :
NorthBridge :Intel i945P
SouthBridge :82801GB/GR (ICH7 Family) LPC Interface Controller

NorthBridge Information :
Architecture :Direct Media Interface (DMI)
Manufacturer :Intel (Dell Computer Corp)
Codename :Lakeport
Revision :00
Bus Speed :199.5 MHz
FSB Frequency :798.1 MHz (QDR)
FSB max. Support :1066 MHz
RAM max. Support :DDR2 (667 MHz)

Memory Information :
Type :DDR2-SDRAM PC2-4300
Frequency :266 MHz
DRAM/FSB Ratio :4/3

So I only have support for 1066 MHz, huh. Would the E6600 work then?

945P should support E6750 but the 945P chipset native support 1066 so you need to make sure your board can OC fsb. Don't get old gen E6xxx, that price you can upgrade your board and get a new CPU.
