Default Switch CPUs


just confirming my thoughts

im getting a new mobo, but im keeping my cpu

if i wanna get a new cpu and switch it with my old one, theres no problem right?

u should be able to switch a Celeron 2.6Ghz out with a Pentium 4 3 Ghz, as long as the mobo is a S487 and supports up to 3 Ghz and the Pentium processor type

am i right?

does this even make sense?

thx for ur help

Should have no problem's at all with the switch,But like you said the motherboard has to be able to handle the higher chip.
