Upgrading to Intel i5 Processor

Q: Upgrading to Intel i5 Processor

I have been using AMD processors for quite some time so I'm unfamiliar with the current Intel Northbridges. I'm probably going to buy an Intel i5 2500K processor and am looking for a good motherboard for it. I will definitely overclock it so am looking at either a P67 or a Z28 motherboard. I am partial to Gigabyte boards. Do any of you guys out there have a preference between the P67 and the Z68? I see a lot of negative reviews on Newegg on boards compatible with the i5 processor. Looks like there are a lot of problems with lockup coming out of sleep mode. Which would you buy if given the choice and why? Would also appreciate any specific recommendations for anyone out there that has one of these boards that are solid. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have upgraded my Sony Vaio E series laptop (VPCEG38FG) from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 8 Pro and now I see that the Intel Processor is running high 3.00GHz all the time (monitoring it through Intel software) causing the laptop to run out of battery quickly and the fan is on all the time.

What power profile do you have? check your power options, if its high performance, change it to balanced or power saver.
If its still not going down, go to:
Control panel > power options > change plan settings (on the right of the profile) > change advanced power settings

Go to the bottom and look at the "Processor power management: Minimum processor state" and make sure its at 1%.

If it still not going down, you will probably have to enter the laptop's bios, and make sure the C1E state or intel speed step is enabled within the processor settings.

Hello guys.
I want to upgrade my 3 years old Sony Vaio (model vgn fz21e)... already updated ddr from 2 to 4 gb, and hdd from 160 to 320.
The Processor the system has now is a Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 2.00 GHz.
What processor would be a wise ugrade, to make it count for programs to load/work faster, use more programs same time, etc. I use alot Photoshop and sometimes takes a while to make it start...

this is the MB report from Lavalys Everest
it is necessary a bios update if i change processor for another model? I never updated it since i bought the notebook

Ok so i know i should just upgrade my motherboard, RAM and processor but dont really have the money to do so. I am looking at the Pentium D processors for my Gigabyte motherboard. Here is a link with compatable processors listed:

http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=2257

The Pentium D 950 is the highest on the list compatable.

There all pretty cheap online, just wondering which one to get. Thanks
 

A:Looking at new Intel processor

Yea you don't have a lot of options for processors, so I would just opt for the one you picked. If they are cheap enough it will suffice until you can upgrade. Personally, I would try to find an even cheaper used chip to use, unless you need a new cooler as well.

The 945 seems to have the same credentials, so you could look for either...

A:Intel i3 or AMD Processor

The FX series is the latest from AMD

The PhenomII x4 965 is last generation but still runs like a Workhorse easy to Overclock

The Intel is last Genration as well

I5 Ivy Bridge is the latest I5 Sandy bridge latest or was according to the members here there are some with intergrated graphics some don't depends on your budget and standards there is a K series etc

For some Intel is the way to go and The other half AMD

I would say if you are on a Budget get what works for you with that being said there is never going to be Future proof anything in 2 years or less the next big thing will be here so choose wisely

Hi there,

I finally building my first PC. Learnt how to do it years ago at college but never had the moeny to do it until now. Processors have moved on a bit since then and I'm no really sure whats what.

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a Pentium D and Pentium 4? and which is the better one to go for. Also is a big cache essential?

A:Which is the best Intel processor to go for?

Hi Damien,



damienb said:



Which is the best Intel processor to go for?Click to expand...

well, the fastest/most powerful processor is the intel Core-2-Duo. but it carries a higher price tag so it may not be the "best" depending on your budget.



damienb said:

simply put, the Pentium-D is a dual core Pentium-4.



damienb said:



which is the better one to go for?Click to expand...

that depends on your personal computing needs and your budget. a dual-core CPU will excell at multi-threaded applications and multi-tasking, but will not offer any performance boost for single-threaded applications (as most still are even today). the 2 cores on a dual core CPU cannot work as 1 single core, so a single threaded application will only run on 1 of the 2 cores.

since a dual-core CPU costs more, then you may benefit more from a faster single core CPU for the same price. even though dual-cores have been out for a while now, they have only recently entered the mainstream computer market. so as we move into the future, more and more applications will be written to take advantage of multi-cored CPUs.

as far as choosing which one, I would suggest you set a budget, then see what is available in both single core and dual core models and decide whether you want 1 fast core, or 2 slower cores.

also, why are you only considering Intel CPUs? AMD Athlon64/Athlon64 X2 processors outperform Pentium-4/Pentium-D processors



damienb said:



is a big cache essential?Click to expand...

essential?, no... does it help?, yes.
the larger the L2 cache = the faster the CPU can access the data it needs
the faster the CPU can access the data it needs = the faster it executes it's command
the faster it executes it's command = the higher overall performance the processor achieves

Which processor are you using and how it is better than the rival ?
 

A:Is your processor the best ? (AMD VS Intel)

@sinu

That is such a difficult question since there are advantages and disadvantages to both - like everything else IT. In any case, if given the choice, I would choose Intel for best compatibility.

Performance from either AMD or Intel - even on the low end - is more than likely sufficient for daily, typical use - unless you are running CPU-intensive softs.

AMD has a price advantage with decent performance, but AMD firmware and drivers can cause problems with some security softs - especially Comodo. AMD is constantly updating its softs and this causes Comodo to detect it as Unrecognized and then sandbox it. On my system some AMD\ATI drivers were sandboxed and it caused all sorts of problems until I fixed the issue locally and Comodo white-listed those files.

On top of it all, ATI was absorbed by AMD, but AMD never digitally signed those ATI files... so that's another issue.

Only through experience does one really know what the pros and cons are for both hardware and software = no clear cut answers.

A:What Should i Consider when Upgrading My Processor

With laptops, consideration #1: your laptop maker (HP) has to support the upgrade. Laptop motherboards, cooling and BIOSes are custom made with that specific model in mind. Your upgrade choices are very limited really. Unless HP officially supports Core 2 in that laptop, your chances of getting it to work are very slim.

No, you wont be able to upgrade the processor without getting a new mobo and most likely a new Power supply as well. I know that P2s are in either socket 7 or slot 1. Pentium 4s are in socket423(obsolete), socket 478 (not obsolete but their not making any faster procs on this one), and the most current socket 775 or socket T. You will need to get a socket 478 or socket 775 mobo in order to upgrade the processor. Look em up on Newegg.

How much money do you want to spend? You should upgrade your motherboard as it probably cant run at a 333 or 400mhz bus speed that newer processors and memory use. Are you a serious or casual gamer?

My advice would be to buy a new barebones system (just the main box), since if you upgrade your motherboard to support a modern CPU, you'll also need new RAM and probably a new SATA hard drive at which point it is generally cheaper and less hassle to buy a new system and use your existing monitor, keyboard, mouse etc.

Is is possible to upgrade the processor? or will i have to get a new motherboard also? and if i can/do upgrade to a faster processor will it be worth doing.

Advice would be appreciated.
 

A:Processor upgrading ?

The fastest CPU for that mobo is 2.0 GHz, if you have BIOS 14 or later.
The board can NOT be overclocked.
It uses the (expensive) RDRAM.
The speed difference is not worth it.
Keep that system as a (reliable) backup and build yourself a nice new system with an AMD64 socket-939 processor. You can go all the way and get a board with PCI-express (or SLI) graphics and DDR2 memory.
A bit cheaper is going for a board with AGPx8 graphics and normal DDR memory.
The likes of Abit, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI have good boards here.
You will need a fairly powerful, good quality PSU for this.

A:Upgrading my processor

You need to know whether or not your motherboard will support the new processor. Also, take care of the type of CPU socket you have, since you can only buy a CPU built for that socket. Also, your motherboard might need a BIOS update depending on what CPU you want to install in it. All the information will be available on the motherboard manufacturer's webpage for that particular motherboard. If you have an OEM PC from HP or the like, then you need to go to the page for your specific computer's model and see what CPUs you can use in it.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

A:Upgrading My Processor?

Theoretically you can upgrade the processor for any PC that doesn't have the maximum allowable processor for the board but this is where the difference between a $300 machine and a $1000 one become very apparent. It probably won't let you do it without all hell breaking loose.

I have an HP pavilion 6830. And on the HP website when I checked out the stats for my PC's processor, it told me that it was an Intel Celeron processor 700 MHZ, it has socket 370and that the front side bus is 66 Mhz and that it is upgradable to 800Mhz. Like, am I suppose to look for a ram that has the same number socket and front side bus # or can I get any Intel Celeron processor as long as it's 800 MHZ? I'm real confused here as to what to look for when purchasing a new processor. In addition, is it possible that you can use a processor from a labtop on a desktop PC if you wanted to?

Hello HP community. I'm having a hard time with my laptop. It freezes non-stop and I am considering upgrading the CPU. What motherboard specifications should I know before starting to look for a new CPU? Could you please tell me? Thanks in advance.

A:Upgrading processor

Intel Pentium N3540 with Intel HD Graphics (2.16 GHz, 2 MB cache, 4 cores) That is what you have. The Pentium N is a very low end processor and I am sure the laptop was at a very low price point. The processor is soldered to the motherboard. No upgrade is possible for any amount of money that makes any sense.  They do make an i7-5500 motherboard for that model but they are hard to find and crazy expensive. By the time you buy the motherboard and pay somebody to install it, you could just buy a new laptop and if you sell yours to Aunt Millie for doing her Instagram (all the laptop is good for) and buy one with a real processor you come out way ahead.  I post here all the time and try to voice my opinion about why these low-end laptops with cell phone processors are even offered but the marketing people say that customers just are not willing to pay an honest price for a solid computer and the Geek Squad and other sellers do a very poor job of educating the public: yes it's a $250 laptop but what can it do? Will you get sick of it and just have to buy something else? Iron law: you get what you pay for.

Download and run Everest Home (free program) this will give us the info that we need to determine your needs, we need to know what motherboard you have so we can see what cpu you can use. It is quite possible to change a cpu without pulling the mobo, depending on how much clearance you have in that area. As far as brand, your stuck with Intel, AMD sockets are totally different than Intel, at least since the old socket 7 days.

Hi All,

I'm wondering what I need to check to verify whether or not a new processor will work with my current PC?

There's lots of descriptive content that comes along with a processor..cache, lithography, etc.. and I'm certainly new to the idea of CPU upgrading. I'm distantly thinking that upgrading options are limited to the motherboard I have.

I have an intel Q8000 series at the moment and am thinking, for sometime in the future, to buy a Q9000 series unit. If the manufacturer is offering to sell my original PC with a higher spec processor, is that usually a solid sign that I can upgrade to that spec? My PC is a Dell XPS 430.

Cheers!

Hello Ive looked online and the instructions given have lead me nowhere, so Im going to ask here and hopefully someone can just give me a straight up answer. Basically, I desperately want to upgrade the processor on this laptop (Compaq 15-h050nf). I understand that if I am to upgrade, I need to know if other processors are compatible with the motherboard, and if so, which ones. Ive looked online but the instructions given for finding out have lead me absolutely nowhere. So if anyone knows  can you please tell me? Thanks!

A:Upgrading the processor

Well I am sorry to say that the processor on your laptop is soldered to the motherboard. The only way to upgrade would be to buy a whole different motherboard. The cost of that is going to approach or exceed what you paid for the laptop. Service Manual See p. 17 of the Manual above.

A:Upgrading processor

Whisper--
Hey, upgrades are complicated enough to confuse anybody. To run a modern CPU you will need a new motherboard, power supply, and RAM, at least. A new CPU will have a different number of pins and fit into a different slot/socket than you've got on your current board. Your 486 used a core voltage of 5.5 volts, and modern CPUs need 2.8 to 3.3, depending on model--that's one reason for a new power supply. And modern boards use 168-pin memory chips, so you'll need new RAM.

You could probably gain some simple CPU speed with an upgrade chip, maybe boost it to 133 MHz, but you'll pay quite a bit and won't get any of the benefits of the new bus designs, expanded CPU functions, built-in USB, etc that you get with a good board/CPU.

Shop around on the Net and I bet you can find a decent Tyan or ASUS board for $80, a Celeron or AMD K6 chip for about the same, a case-power supply for $50, and 128 MB RAM for $130.

Have fun--

A:Upgrading my processor

You would have to replace the motherboard as yours does not support Core i3 and in most cases. Replacing the Mobo would cost as much as getting a new laptop and it's a hassle in most cases. And it's not always possible to do.

The best option for you is to buy a new laptop with a Core i3 in it.

The jumper settings would need to be changed.

The 120 used 2 x 60 to get to 120
The 166 would need to be set at a multiplier of 2.5 and a frontside bus of 66 mhz to obtain 166. You will need to find the jumper settings for your motherboard

I'm posting this on behalf of a friend of mine.

He has an older Gateway computer (Gateway 500GR) and is looking to upgrade his processor so that World of Warcraft won't lag during large raids (up to 25 people). He has an ATI Radeon HD 4300 and 4GB of DDR RAM, but the processor is a single-core Pentium 4. He has great connection up until getting with all the people, then the computer simply grinds to a turtle-ish pace.

My thoughts were that the processor was at least part of the problem, if not the whole problem.

Here is the computer's link on the Gateway website http://assets.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/3724nv.shtml

The motherboard has a LGA775 socket, so I presume it can upgrade to a dual-core?

HI lourduraj , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
I think you need to check your CPU because its a BGA type when I checked your current  processor.
It is there non upgradable for your pc. On a Ball Grid Array , CPU is soldered on the board.

Hope this answered your query.

I have a AMD Athlon Proc. Thunderbird, Socket A, CMOS of 18...and its 900mhz, multiplier at 9.0, and heres what the question has to do with ^_^, FSB of 100mhz, bus speed at 200mhz. Now i want to upgrade it to a AMD Duron 1.8 Applebred 266MHz FSB 64KB L2 Cache Socket A Processor - OEM, notice the FSB is 266mhz, so can you guys help me tell if i can upgrade it. Im worried it wont work cuz of my motherboard, which is a compaqs( yeah i know it sucks) but i cant tell if i can upgrade it or not.

So to make it easier on you guys i got cpu-z and heres the info from cpu-z perpective. Its attached to the post,

Thanks in Advance :knock:

There's nothing wrong with my PC. Working just fine eventhough I have been using it for more than 5 years now. I just want to upgrade the processor. Currently, I'm using AMD Athlon Thunderbird where FSB is 100. On the BIOS, shows FSB 100 selected. My MOBO support both FSB 100 and FSB 133.

Few days ago, I got myself an AMD AthlonXP 1900+(Palomino). I've checked and it's supported by my MOBO. Except, the FSB is 133.

When I installed the new CPU onto my MOBO :
1. Monitor is blank
2. Cannot access BIOS
3. D-LED shows first 3 LED turn green and the last one is red

My questions are :
1. Proper steps on how to install new CPU that has different FSB from the previous CPU.
2. Does BIOS auto-detect processor FSB
3. What will happen to the CPU if different FSB configured on the BIOS.
4. Any idea what when wrong beside "what you got there is a non-functional CPU"
 

A:Upgrading Processor

As an old hand with Socket A, I would ask you for the details of your motherboard. I suspect it does not support your intended CPU. BTW, I still have a working Athlon XP1800+ setup.

A:Help Upgrading Processor

You should have a look at your motherboard manufacturer webpage to see what cpu's is supported by your motherboard. Can't you afford a new motherboard or whats the reason for upgrading only the cpu? But, to be straight, I doubt the possibility that the Phenom is going to work on your motherboard

Hi.

Okay. So I've discovered that my CPU is actually an Intel Celeron MMX compatible processor running at 366MHz.

Now then...is this processor the equivalent (albeit cheaper) of a Pentium II processor? If so, am I okay to purchase software (ie games) which are written for Pentium II processors running at the same speed?

Thanks to all for their assistance and patience!!

I am very new to the world of computers. Recently I acquired an old computer and it has a Intel Pentium II processor with 399 MHZ, 128 MB of ram. I know that all of what I describe has something to do with memory and speed. But I am unsure which one is what. Also the operating system is Windows XP. Can someone enlighten me -
1. What is MHZ,and MB 2. can the system be upgraded to improve performance. ? 3. Can you direct me to a site that can teach me about upgrading or just basic computer knowledge.

Thanks!

Hi,
All of you must be knowing that Intel successfully tested its new 80 cores processor in Dec last year or jan. this year. Its clock speed is 1.7 THz and it consumes 65W (Only). And its exactly same in size as that of a simple 65nm processor. So, intel is going to launch it for home as well as corporate users.
Thus,
Does anyone here know when intel is going to launch that processor for home users?

You can get some benchmark comparisons here:

The GT/sec is explained at the bottom of this chart:

Intel? Core™ i7 Processor Product order codes

I'm not up on the latest and most demanding games, but my understanding of the subject is that given a choice between:

A) A good CPU + great Graphics card
or
B) A great CPU + good graphics card

you should go with "A", since the graphics card makes the more significant difference in gaming.

Of course, "great everything" is, uh, great!

I am not to sure how it happened but it seems as though the processor connectors were touched and now the contaminated area is darker than the rest of the processor. ie gold and darker gold.

Will this effect the processors efficiency?

I was looking at a Dell I3847-4616BK and at one place the processor simply said Core I5 while another said Core I5-4440.

Why doesn't the first have a number with it? I know there are variations such as 4440 4460 and so on but why just I5?

The two sites I checked would not do a price match because the processors were different.

What i would like to know is if the t6600 2.20ghz would be ok or do i need to spend the extra money to get the 2.4ghz? I will be surfing the net, doing email, music and pictures. I will not be doing gaming. I would like the laptop to be fast, I do not want to have to wait a long time between screens. I am replacing a dell desktop xps 410 2.40ghz just because i would rather have a notebook.

Thank you so much for your help.
 

A:Intel core 2 duo processor

t6600 is fine for what you plan on doing, the processor upgrade will not make it surf any faster, most delays in surfing/page loads are due to the browser you use, or your internet connection. I notice some days that pages load faster than others, nothing can be done about this if it is due to your ISP or other problems that happen on a constant basis on the world wide web.

If the processor upgrade is not much of a price hike, less than $60, I say go for it.

I'm sure I'll get a lot of laughs and head-shaking from this, but it's a long story.

I am attempting to repair an OLD computer for an elderly friend of mine who simply "Won't have anything else!" The machine is an HP (looks like homemade) with an Intel Pentium II MMX processor. Anyway, her processor died, and I can't find anything on it that tells me the speed. So essentially, I don't know if it's a 233, 266, 400, etc. There must be some way to find out, but there are no numbers that I can see anywhere that will tell me for sure. It fits in a single slot and has an attached cooling fan if that helps.

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Intel PII MMX Processor Speed?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slot_1

It's a slot 1 PII - if you can't read the info on the side of the CPU then you are probably SOL

You might find one on eBay for a buck so I'd get a couple that were different MHZ - try one until it works.
Start on the low side - 250 or 333mhz
Also I believe you can adjust the MB to different speed CPU's with jumpers on the MB
Google is your best bet...
