    Compatible Motherboards For Intel P4 3.0GHz HT

    im_prad

      Hi,

       

      I have the following in my PC:-


      Processor:-
      Intel P4 3.0GHz HT //Prescott //478 mPGA socket // 90mm


      Motherboard:-

      Intel 865GBF

       

      My processor is pretty fast(not as much the top end core 2 duo extreme or nehalem, but definitely faster and usual 2ghz core 2 duo etc) but my M/B only has DDR1 slots and not PCIe or PCIeX slots that are used now a days for

      the gaming or graphic card as AGP's are pretty obsolete and comparitively costly.
      So can you please suggest some M/B's which have DDR2/DDR3 slots and the recent PCIe and PCIeX as well which are

      compatible with my processor.

      P.S.:- I live in Delhi, India

          Hi there,

           

          I think that these board will support your CPU. But unfortunately, none of them supports DDR2 memory.

           

          Intel® 875 Chipset Based Desktop Boards
          Intel® Desktop Board D875PBZ 
          Intel® 865 Chipset Based Desktop Boards
          Intel® Desktop Board D865PCK 
          Intel® Desktop Board D865PERL
          Intel® Desktop Board D865GVHZ
          Intel® Desktop Board D865GSA
          Intel® Desktop Board D865GRH
          Intel® Desktop Board D865GLC
          Intel® Desktop Board D865GBF

           

          To be honest with you, this boards are discontinued and Intel does not provide any support for this. So if you are planning to buy new memory and hardware, personally, i think that it is best for you to change for a better, change the cpu as well and get a much better board.

           

          Think well.

           

          Kind regards,
          Aryan.

            Thanks for replying Aryan,

             

            I know my situation is pretty tricky but If I change the processor then definitely that would be very late this year when Nehalem would be lot cheaper, 8 cores

            would be more common and HT would make a proper return and that involves considerable cost as well as nothing else would be left to  change after all what

            would be left for me 2 keep would be just the HDD and the DVDRW as RAM. MB, pro and probably cabinet + SMPS would all need to be changed to match the

            latest procesor req. Now thats not what I intend to do as of now.

            I surely believe Intel would have released some new boards with DDR2/DDDR3 which are compatible with my processor

              Hi there,

               

              As I said ealier, I dont think that there is any Intel Board that supports your CPU and DDR2/3. The unfortunate thing is that Intel does not make anymore boards that supports your CPU. It is already discontinued and probably end of life.

               

              Regards,
