Re: processor

Formanite, welcome to the forum.


Here is the Technical Reference Guide for the computer.  On Page 53 you will find the information on the compatible processors.  Read all of the information on that page carefully.  It appears that only P4 processors are compatible with the motherboard.  Also, the cooling is very crucial to the processor functioning properly.  Using any processor other than those listed is risky.
