I have been recently thinking of upgrading my fairly dated pentium 4 processor with something a bit better. I have been looking at the Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, but I was wondering what other people thought of this. Any ideas?Thanks in advance
but unless your motherboard is a has a 775 socket you will need to replace that as well. Post your system spec so we can have a look.
My motherboard does have that socket, although I dont know which motherboard I have.I have 1.5Gb RamIntel Pentium 4 3GHz ProcessorATI A9600 Graphics Card150Gb Hard Disk
Run Belarc Advisor click here it`ll tell you what mobo you`ve got.
The E6600 is very good click hereTry everest home for free click here to see if it will recognise your motherboard.
My mobo is SiS-661 apparentlyThanks for all the help so far
SIS-661 is the chipset, you need the motherboard name. It will something like ASUS A8N-SLI or Gigabyte GA7VAXP.If Belarc and Everest don't tell you try SIW click hereYou must find out what your motherboard is so you can see if it can take a faster processor.
Field ValueMotherboard Name ECS 661FX-M7I dont know if that is any help
These are the processors that your motherboard can support click hereIf Totally-braindead could also check, but I think it means that you can not run an E6600 for your motherboard.Lets see if TB can confirm this.
The manual, click here to download it, only states support for Pentium 4.
Thanks, I did think that my motherboard would be a bit old. Its even older than I thought.Looks like ill need a new one of those too!
