Celeron Willamette vs. Celeron D Prescott

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if the Celeron D will work in my system. I have a Soyo P4X400 Dragon Ultra and i can't find any info on if the Celeron D will work. i just started in looking in building my system up form th old 1.7 to the 2.8 w/533fsb , adding a nVidia 6600gt 256mb video card, and upping the ram to 2gb from 512.
i have the card already but was unsure if the D will work or should i go for the P4 w/533FSB?

thanks for any help

There may be a bios update to support the chip, look into that

If you look on the CPU support list on the motherboard manufacturers site it will tell you if your motherboard will accept that CPU also you may need to update your bios first aswel.

to Overclock.net TooBadd.

I'm affraid your MoBo will not support ANY Prescott CPU: SEE LINK.

As for current support or future? Sorry but SOYO stopped making motherboards so most likely if you want to use a Celeron D (Prescott) you will have to buy a new (ASUS) motherboard as well.

the manufacter says no to Prescott Processor Support(1MB Cache)
but also say yes to Celeron "Socket 478" up to 2.8GHz
Is there a celeron that is not a pescott processer at a 2.8GHz?
or are they talking about a pentium 4 Prescott?
and i do have the latest bios up date but the last update was offered
05-29-2003. so i still don't know

thanks

From 1.7 to 2.8 (if you can fine one) on the same 400mhz fsb? I woulnd't do that, rather start looking into going with an actual 800mhz fsb CPU that will support HTT and have DDR400 running at full speed and in a Dual Channel configuration, then you'll see some real improvement. Otherwise not worth it in my opinion.
