Hi Guys,

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
Qualification sample Q72V
Previous stepping SL7DT
Manufacturing technology (micron) 0.09
L2 cache size (KB) 1024
Features Enhanced SpeedStep technology
Hyper-Threading technology
Thermal Monitor 2
Core voltage (V) 1.25 - 1.4
Case temperature (°C) 75

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?

Has anyone tried this, or similar?
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer.

The info in my post was taken from the actual item description. I bought this on ebay.

Here is the link to the actual item.

Please let me know what you think.

Thank You Again,
No, hasn't arrived yet. This was my mistake. I am no Comp pro, and was a little too jumpy. Enough numbers matched, price was right, I jumped.

My dad is laughing at me. He said I didn't know whether to crap or to wind my watch, so I crapped on my watch.

I just got the proccessor and here are the numbers on it.:

Pentium 4
3.06 Ghz/1M/533
SL7NA Malay


Thank you again for your help,
