I'm confused will a socket 478 cpu fit in a socket 775 mobo?
the number is referring to the number of pins/contacts, so definately no.
yeah, it will fit just fine. There are fewer pins in the 478cpu, so you will have some extra holes but the motherboard will sort all of that out.
if it gives some resistance going in, just apply a liberal amount of thermal grease to the pins on the proc and also in the socket itself, then give it a firm tap with a hammer wrapped in a dishtowel
Go be an asshole in the main forum. People come here for help.
Maybe you're unaware, but there used to be a socket standard called Super Socket 7 that had more holes than Socket 7 did, but it still could use Socket 7 CPUs. It's perfectly reasonable for the guy to have thought all Pentium 4's could fit on all Pentium 4 motherboards.
Didn't they reverse how they did the pins with 478 and 775? Like the CPU used to have the pins but now the socket does?
FC-PGA478 = Flip-chip pin-grid array
FC-LGA775 = Flip-chip land-grid array
no CPU i've ever installed required anything more than very gentle pressure to get it to seat properly.
WTF??? A hammer?? Surly this is a joke post. You can't be serious.
Ignore him, he's being a douche bag.
jesus fuck, you guys are a bunch of tight asses
lol, I use a sledge hammer
Someday you'll need technical info from someone, and deliberate misinformation will not amuse you.
ok, how about this one...
my pc will not power on so I assume it is the power supply. I take the PSU out of there and put it into my spare PC and it boots and runs just fine.
I put the PSU from the spare PC into the one that I thought was broken and now it powers up just fine.
so I swap both power supplies back into their original machines and the one that was broken is still broken and the one that was good is still good
ATX != AT.
The days of simply applying power are gone. ATX requires systems to integrate. The result is usually much more clean; however, when using shitty components, things can be incompatable. Tolerances that are okay with one product may be unacceptable with another.
Generally a rail is not sustaining voltage at a given current demand. A faulty powergood circuit can also be at fault.
Building on what Jolly said, my first guess is that the power supply has slowly degraded over time and can no longer provide its rated output. Hence, your spare PC (which, unless you're a total idiot, is going to be the older and less demanding of the two machines) was still happy with the degraded power output, and the PSU from the spare PC is still holding up better so it was able to power the newer machine acceptably.
yea was thinking more along the lines of a press but I suppose the hammer should work. I figured it wouldn't fit but the guy that had the mobo was insisting that it would fit...dumbass
The "good" power supply is an Ultra X-Connect 500w power supply that is a little over two years old. The "bad' power supply is a 550w antec truepower that is about a year old. The motherboard is an EPoX 9NPA+ SLi. With the two power supplies, both the BIOS and Speedfan are showing the same voltages.
I see what you are saying
I'll find out for sure tonight one way or the other, but I am leaning towards the PSU being shit
yeah, it was the power supply
in the new box it would turn on, power up all the fans, HDDs and dvd drive but I got no video and no post. Had to run to fry's and pick up a 600w thermaltake PSU
ugh why the fuck did your dumb ass buy a thermaltake? Last time I checked, Frys did carry good brands, as well -- such as Enermax.
not only am I a dumbass, I am also cheap and needed something that cost less than $100
Yay! Worksafe mode works again!
I just noticed that yesterday.
