Intel Celeron & Celeron D Processors

  Lady Lara 13:53 27 Oct 2006

I have an emachines 420 that was working with a Intel Celeron 2.6Ghz processor. Motherboard has now gone and i need to replace it. I have found a similar mobo but it accepts a Celeron D processor. Will my Celeron Processorwork in it?

No the soketis Different, old Celeron is a 370. Hears info for the D processor click here

This the speck for D CPU

* Intel® 975X Express chipset
* Intel® 955X Express chipset
* Intel® 945P Express chipset
* Intel® 945G Express chipset
* or equivalent 3rd party chipset

So I would thing the pins are different. I may be wrong.

afternoon ;-)

I didn't think that celeron 370's went to 2.6Ghz.

I may be wrong though. I thought they started at pin 478.

Looks like a 478 to me. click here

best thing would be to pop the celeron out of the motherboard and post the details here. The code will be written on it.

The motherboard is definatley a socket 478 one click here and from the cpu list you can see it runs a celeron 2.6Ghz.

It just needs confirmation on your cpu.

Will try and get cpu out and will post deatils on it shortly.... got to walk the dog though for an hour first!!!

Looks like it could fit, but best check the CPU marks first before buying MOBO

Have had the chip out but is has a rubber gum solution on it so no writingis visible. Any ideas.... although at £33 it is worth a risk I suppose. If it does not work ... there is always ebay!!

Just checked via the web and a 2.6Ghz celeron from a emachines 420 will fit into the ASRock motherboard.

The ASRock cpu compatibility guide say that the 2.6Ghz will fit the board.

So as in first post ;-) Yes it will fit that motherboard. Definite.
