Got a case to mod. Old innards:
100mhz IBM processor
800MB HDD
??KB FPO/EDO (not sure on either)
PVR/TV tuner (the ONE thing I like about it: in-room TV and game console hook-up capabilities)

OK. It was an old AIO. Dangerous work, but hey. I'm still alive to post, aren't I?


But I did a little experimenting, and found out, with an LCD in place, I could put in a mATX board. Was able to route cables (data and power) no problem.

Also, I got a P4 3.0GHz. Meant to upgrade Compaq, but one pin was transposed. :oops:

My question:
What would be the best mATX (not necessarily the BEST) board that supports my p4? And where could I get it?

Not sure. Here's the writing on it:

Intel (M) (C) '01
PENTIUM(R)4
3 GHZ/512/800
5L6WK MALAY
0401A470

You have a socket 478 northwood. Computer geeks has an asus p4sd micro atx board for about $43 with free shipping. Ascendtech.us and 3b tech may also carry some 478 boards.

you want something that has 800Mhz FSB though to run this on full speed.

Specs:

there's one soc478 left at newegg, and it is a mATX...

not totally sure if it runs northwoods... says it runs prescott.
does ddr2 and pci-e, which is a plus.

It runs 800MHz FSB CPUs so should work. You could ask newegg beforehand though.

Now, the power supply.

What would you recommend for this board?


And video card?


*Just as a side question, is there really 2 different kinds of s478s, or would it be called something else? Just wondering, because this is similar to what I saw:

P4
. . . . . . .
. . . . . . .
. . . . . . .
. . . . .


Celeron, the one I was trying to upgrade:

. . . . . . .
. . . . . . .
. . . . . .
. . . . . .
**This is looking at the processor

Nope, only one socket 478. Different chipsets and mobo configurations supported different processor revisions, and a good majority supported all Celeron/P4's up to a point. Obviously, you couldn't drop an 800mhz FSB processor into a board rated for 533 (occasionally you could, it would just clock the processor back by 50%).

As for video card and power supply...
What would you all recommend for this board?
