Processor socket ?

  Lasse 18:22 03 Nov 2003

I am thinking of buying a new processor for my computer. My mainboard will support up to Althon XP 2000+. Does this include the Palermo. The most confusing thing is that on the front of my mainboard manual it is called a Socket A mainboard, but in the manual it says that the mainboard has a Socket 462 processor socket. Can anybody please enlighten me.

Socket A is also socket 462, the 462 refers to the number of pins on the amd processor, from memory pentium processors are 478 pins.

Your board maybe able to handle more if you flash the bios.

Be very careful if you do it and fully understand what you are doing. Making a mistake can render you MB useless...but it can also be a good thing.

I have flashed a few Bios's with no problems and ASUS MB's make it even easier by doing it for you.

Anyway...just an idea incase you want more than 2000xp (1.6ghz).
