[M440] processor upgrade

Postby mxhans » Wed Jun 24, 2009 11:23

I cannot find a list of compatible processors on the FS site.
The computer holds a Pentium 4 CPU @ 3.0GHhz now. Can anyone tell me if a Pentium D 940 or 945 (dual core) will fit this motherboard ?
The motherboard is a D2178-A1

Thanks in advance.

Upgrade is done.
Very simple and no hassle. Just dropped in the new (used from ebay) processor with a drop of Arctic Silver of course, restarted and no weird screens or warnings at all. No need to change anything in Windows. PC is much more responsive now. Went from P4-631 (3GHz) to a Pentium D 945 (2x3.4GHz).
Happy person here, thank you !
