I've been searching the internet to see what is compatible with my system, but it seems that there is no simple guide, at least at a first google search of "what CPU is compatible with my motherboard"

so, what CPUs are compatible with my motherboard?

in the everest home edition under the motherboard ID this is what is shown:

07/04/2006-C51MCP51-6A61HF0DC-00


and under cpu this is what is listed


Field Value
CPU Properties
CPU Type Unknown, 2200 MHz
Instruction Set x86, x86-64, MMX, 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3
L1 Code Cache 64 KB
L1 Data Cache 64 KB
L2 Cache 512 KB (Asynchronous)

Multi CPU
Motherboard ID OEM00000 PROD00000000
CPU #0 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+, 2210 MHz
CPU #1 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+, 2210 MHz

CPU Utilization
CPU #1 / Core #1 0 %

what will fit?

Install and run Belarc Advisor. Your motherboard's make & model will be shown @ the top of the righthand column. Google that info. Once on the item's product page, click on 'CPU SUPPORT List' or something similar.......Voila'.

As above, find out the model of your motherboard and the manufacturer, type that into Google and look what "socket" your motherboard has. Newer motherboards that support AMD Athlon these days will usually be an AM2 socket.
