Re: Opteron 185 Server Speed Question

Thank you for that information. It is very helpful. I thought the Opteron 185's were just single core. My bad.... they are dual core. I guess I got confused over the board I've been looking at because it only goes up to a 100 series Opteron, which I wonder about.... as in if I could upgrade the moth...

Re: Opteron 185 Server Speed Question

I think I'd be lying if I answered that question. Everything is "startup" so I assume the traffic will be very minimal at first until my sites catch on. I will be using ads on them amongst their other functions of information providing and some will be service based, but those sites will obviously t...

Opteron 185 Server Speed Question

If I were to tell you or anyone else that I was putting up an Opteron 185 Server of 4GB RAM and SATA drives running Windows 2003 Server, would that be looked at as a slow server right now? slow? medium? fast? super fast? I see what looks to be a good deal on a used server and I know Opteron 185's we...

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

What if I upgraded the bios chip to the v8.0 chip that supports the Core 2 Duo? The v1.2 of this board (the one I have) doesn't (as ya'll say) support a Core 2 Duo, but the v8.0 of this same exact board does support it. There are zero physical difference in the boards besides this bios chip.

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

Ok, lets look at this another way. Is the following TRUE? If your motherboard matches the following specs of ANY given CPU, it will support it (at its fullest speed) most of the time: Frequency range capable FSB capable Voltage (must be same or lower) TDP (heat dissipation; must be considered for im...

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

Ok, new information that I'm now positive of, as I got down to the nitty gritty and compared chip numbers directly off the chips of the motherboard. I am dealing with a P4M80 PRO-M7 Biostar motherboard (aka P4M800 Pro-M7) motherboard version 1.2 as shown on the board itself. The correct user manual ...

Re: HP ZV6000 laptop Socket 939 CPU Upgrade possible to what?

I figured that too, but its great to have experienced people's input. If I do this it'll be in the next month or two. I will post results, not that many care about socket 939 anymore, but whatever.

Re: HP ZV6000 laptop Socket 939 CPU Upgrade possible to what?

Thank you guys. I have found at least 2 references, elsewhere on the net, that 2 people did successfully upgrade to FX-55's and it worked on my model laptop. Yes, I'm very happy with this laptop and its reliability and didn't even know socket 939 in a laptop was uncommon. What are the chances a FX-5...

Re: HP ZV6000 laptop Socket 939 CPU Upgrade possible to what?

I have no doubt I could eventually get to my CPU and replace it, but what I really wanna know is the answers to the last 4 questions in my 1st post. If its not going to yield a noticeable/visual speed improvement, then it isn't worth all that trouble. If it is worth the trouble, then I'll post back ...

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

Thank you. Thats what I needed to know. I used to keep up with the processor generations and trends a long time ago, but it all moves too fast to worry about knowing until you need to know it. I'm glad there are still experts out there willing to give good advice. And now for my next post about anot...

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

If a cpu uses a different nm size in manufacturing then I could not upgrade or swap to that other cpu right? I must stay with the same nm right?

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

I have cpu-z on the system and I still do not see how to discern if this board is 1.x, 7.x or 8.x version. On the biostar link it says that next to the Socket 775 verbiage. Does anyone know how else I could verify this information? Where on the motherboard to look?

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

Thank you again. This computer's main use is casual internet browsing, farming on facebook (resource hog and main reason for wanting more power), music playing and occasional word processing.

Re: LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

Her machine is currently running:
Intel Celeron(R) D CPU 3.20GHz
3.21 GHz, 1.93 GB of RAM

Would I notice a big performance improvement if I upgraded from that processor to the fastest Pentium 4 I can put in the current board?

BIOS boot setup screen: PM613 bs 2007 6-13-2007 p4m800p-8237-6a7l6B09c-00 I think it is this one: http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en%2Dus/mb/content.php?S_ID=95 It matches the number of USB ports, but both ver 1.x/7.x and 8.0 of that motherboard have 6 usb ports (2 in front and 4 in back) and of cour...

LGA 775 socket interchangeable with all 775 CPUs?

If my motherboard has a LGA 775 socket/cpu, then may I use ANY 775 form factored CPU and it will work fine in that socket up to its normal/top speed?
