Alright everyone, don't flip out when reading this

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Keep your calm ok LOL. Anyways, i was looking at something in 3dmark and i notice it says my computer/motherboard has a ZIF zocket, so i did search and came across this:

http://www.brainbell.com/tutors/A+/H...ting_a_CPU.htm

" A ZIF socket has a lever arm that allows for simple removal and installation of CPUs. ZIF sockets were introduced during the early 1990s as a safe means of providing a user-friendly CPU upgrade. The first ZIF socket had 169 pins and was used on 486SX systems. These systems were sold with a 486SX chip already installed in a PGA socket and provided a ZIF socket for a 486 overdrive chip. (An overdrive chip is a special processor designed to increase the speed of 486 computers. It works similarly to the standard clock-doubling processors-DX2 and DX4-used on 486 motherboards.) Often, this is a good method of increasing the speed of a computer without replacing the motherboard "

Now i was told to find out what motherboard, etc i have and i was wondering could i really replace my 600mhz CPU just like that at cheap prices?

No and yes. The ZIF only makes taking out and putting in processors easier. You can only upgrade to CPUs of the same socket. So I guess you can get a higher clocked P3 socket 370...

370? wouldn't that be downgrading? or did you mean 970?
sorry if i don't understand, i was just curious, doesn't mean i am actually going to replace it.

Pentium III CPU's came in two varieties.

Slot A - An expansion card format where you slot the CPU in like you would a graphics card.

pga370 - The typical CPU socket that we all know and love.

If you read my first post, I stated that you can upgrade to a higher mhz cpu as long as it is socket 370.

Oh ok, thanks. I might look into it, or get someone else to look into it. How high do you think tho, from 600MHZ on this computer, i was thinking 900mhz. That would be a awesome final upgrade. If i do decided to to this tho, i will wait until i buy my new computer and set that up first.

just a small correction, slot A is amd's slot version of socket a, intel is Slot 1

You'll have to look on ebay.... Intel stopped manufacturing those LONG ago.
