I've got a 2.7 GHz Northwood P4 right now, and was wondering if there are any other processors I could upgrade to without having to replace my motherboard or my DDR RAM. Would Pentium D work?

The mainboard section has information on the manufacturer, the model, chipset, southbridge, sensor, bios, and graphic interface. There's nothing about CPU sockets there.

edit: I'll try googling for my motherboard's model.

Under the 'CPU' tab, read the third line. It should be called 'Package', and that'll tell you what socket it is
