Upgrading Proccessor ?

  Acer-1 18:15 15 Jan 2006

Hi i wish to upgrade my processor at the moment its a Intel Celeron D 335 2.8Ghz Socket 478 and i have seen a Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz Socket 478 does that make it compatible or is it alot more complicated than that also is it a case of just slotting processors in like graphics cards or again is it alot more complicated ?.

I know upgrading proccesors is generally unadvised and probably more expensive but its something i want to do so any help appreciated thanks.

You need to know if your motherboard is capable of supporting it. Physically it will fit, but not all boards support all processors of the same socket format. What motherboard do you have?

My Motherboard is:

Motherboard Properties:
Manufacturer Acer
Product F661GX
Version R01-B3
Serial Number 04E254303310

if this helps ?

Acer don't make motherboards, only assemble to PC. You need to know what the motherboard is. Might be best to ask Acer support.

Try running Belarc click here or Everest Home click here
When you run either you will find out a lot about your mobo as well as other things. Take it from there and good luck.

if that helps ? and someone has left a review on their saying they have upgraded the processor to a Pentium 4 3.2 with Hyperthreading what ever that is ?

I would speak to Acer about this. ed-0's link suggests that the max processor is a 2.8Ghz. Acer's website does not have any info on this PC, so can't be sure.

I think it would be a good idea to download everest as advised by [email protected] click here. This should give you the exact motherboard make and model.

The above board was from the ID numbers and may need a physical confirmation. On the web, from different countries, the aspire sa60 is listed with different manufacturers motherboards.
