Are They Compatable?

  1. Hello,

    I'm not a novice to replacing and upgrading computer parts, however I recently decided to start building my own and the motherboard/processor compatability has driven me insane! So I was wondering if anyone here could tell me if this processor would be compatable with the motherboard.

    Motherboard:
    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813135218

    Processor:
    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16819116004


    I Greatly appreciate any help anyone can give and they will have my gratitude.

    cool thanks.

    just the compatability on the mobo said "p4 ht" and i assumed ht on that stood for hyperthreading ^^

    Bear in mind, he may need a BIOS update with a different CPU.

    UltimoAviso, most of the time any Motherboard will come with a BIOS that was current when the MB was first built and will need to an update to make any system top of the line with newer equipment.
