Hi all,<br />
<br />
I have an Intel D845GLVA motherboard with a Pentium 4 2.0 GHz processor currently installed and working.<br />
<br />
I am looking for specific information on which Intel processors fit this board and can be dropped-in as a performance upgrade? I am not experienced at determining this (newbie).<br />
<br />
For example, I am not entirely sure if this mobo is "Socket 478" and 400 MHz FSB? I also am not sure what is the recommended or top speed GHz Pentium 4 that will work as a drop-in replacement for what I currently have. I also don't know if a Pentium "HT" processor will work, etc.<br />
<br />
I am looking for known specific recommendations that will work with the Intel D845GLVA motherboard. Money is tight.<br />
<br />
Thank you!<br />
<br />
Russell

Probably 533/400 FSB CPU's will work. I haven't seen any "533 only" or "400 only" mobos.<br />
<br />
I'll look it up. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

Welcome to the forums btw. Fill in your system specs in the "User CP" (up top <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />) so you don't have to type in your computer specs everytime.<br />

Guess I was wrong, and a first time for everything. <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
Only 400Mhz FSB processors, I guess...You won't really get that far with only 400Mhz FSB processors, really...<br />
You could get a cheap mobo, since you probably won't be OCing since you plan on keeping that mobo (it cant...<img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" />), for $40 or $50 or so, and pick up a 533/800FSB Pentium 4....<img src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thinking" class="inlineimg" />

Looks like it is 400 only - ill try to dig up the best 400mhz s478 cpu<br />
<br />
<a href="http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/va/" target="_blank">mobo page</a><br />
<br />
**EDIT**<br />
the only 478 400 cpu that newegg has is a 1.6GHz Celeron<br />
you may be out of luck with that mobo

The Intel website: <a href="http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/va/va_proc.htm" target="_blank">http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/va/va_proc.htm</a> says that the fastest Pentium 4 processor the Intel mobo D845GLVA will support is a Pentium 4 2.6 GHz (512 KB cache). An Intel "Specs" page linked from there says "Hyperthreading is not supported" for the Intel D845GLVA board. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"><br><br>
I see Pentium 4 2.6 GHz processors selling on ebay for reasonable prices so I will watch ebay.<br><br>
Thank you for your help,<br><br>
