The only problem is that your operating system will no longer be activated due to the motherboard change and you will have to format and install a new retail version of XP.
He is rocking a S478 the psu will be a 20 pin and i am about sure the the front panel on the old one is different

Ohh... I didn't catch that. Sorry. I just must have been lucky because my HP was a socket 775.

LOL

I JUST did a google search on overclocking this same exact computer [i'm posting from it] and I was assuming i'd find posts from 2+ years back , not 2 weeks ago.

Anyways this is an informative post ... I'd just like to add that I had picked up a Rosewill Hyper silence 478 CPU cooler thinking ...

"well , it says its for the 3.4ghz 478 , it can't be THAT much different ..."

Sure as **** the thing didn't fit , the base dimensions were on point but there was no mounting bracket replacement to screw into the board to clamp down the fan = no fit.

So i just ended up using some artic silver remover and then some artic silver 5 thermal paste compound ...

In the future I really hope to find an aftermarket cpu fan that'll fit on this thing because the fan thats on there right now WHINES and it gives me headaches after a couple hours of it drilling into my head ... Maybe also a cheap PSU to replace this one as well, it works but i'm feeling like it may be contributing to the noise and I dont like noise.

anyhow , all the best

PS. at this point , it isn't worth investing anymore than 30 bucks on improving this comp , you did the right thing to take your money and invest in a new build.
