Hope this is in the right spot.
I have a QDI mobo with a P4 2.4 in a 478 socket. The booklet that came with mobo from manufacturer states that the board is compatible with: Intel Pentium 4 (Northwood) socket 478 processors at 1.6/1.8/2.0/2.2/2.26/2.4/2.53/2.66/2.8/3.06 Ghz.
I ,accidentally, purchased a used ( and unreturnable) Mobile Pentium 4 3.06 Ghz ( NOT Pentium 4 - M ) it is as follows:
Family Intel Mobile Pentium 4
Processor number: 532
Frequency: (GHz) 3.067
Bus speed: (MHz) 533
Package type: 478-pin FC-mPGA4
Core stepping E0

Previous stepping SL7DT

L2 cache size (KB) 1024

Can I use this 3.06 Mobile Pentium 4 on my QDI board, at least untill I can locate and obtain a true P4 Northwood CPU?
