    The numbers on the motherboad is just the type of processor it will run. you need to find a processor with corresponding numbers and it should all work correctly. im not sure what the B means but the numbers match, so all seems well

    Your socket 478 CPU should work in any socket 478 motheroboard.

    maybe the 478b means since it is a Via chipset puke: it's a B grade board. :haha:
