    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] Changing my CPU

    I got a custom computer with a Celeron 2.4Ghz. I have a few Pentium 2.4's around. Everest says that my motherboard is: Effective clock - 533Mhz

    I have two Pentium 4 2.4ghz. One says 533 on it and the other says 800 on it. The exact markings are 2.4Ghz/512/800 and the other one is listed with /533

    Should I stay away from the 800 and just use the 533 or can I use either cpu with this motherboard. The mobo is a ASRock P4i65GV

    Don't want to cook anything.

    Use the 800 for better performance. This generation of motherboards are among the first to support 800 MHz FSB CPUs.
    I have a similar motherboard (P4i65G) with an overclocked 2.6GHz Northwood (512/800) CPU on it and it works perfectly.

    Here's the CPU support chart if you want to make sure The ones you have are probably these models and they appear to be supported on all BIOS versions :

    478 Pentium 4 n/a Northwood 2.40 GHz 800MHz 512KB All
    478 Pentium 4 n/a Northwood 2.40 GHz 533MHz 512KB All

    Core i7 2600K @ 4.6GHz | Noctua NH-D15S | ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z | 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 CL9 | ASUS Strix GTX 1070 OC | 256GB Crucial m4 | 2TB WD Green | Samsung DVD±RW | Seasonic X 460w Fanless | Fractal Design Define Mini | Windows 7 Ultimate | Dell U2415
