Temporary CPU Replacement

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?

When you get it post what numbers are on it the specs are close it may work and you won't hurt anything trying it.

Many years ago I built a 65 GTO Dad was happy the whole time I was in the barn working on it right up until the day it actually started and drove into the driveway open headers and all. Seems he never thought it would run:grin:
Still can't find it on intel but I did find it here

Pop it in and see if the bios knows what to do with it.
