You need to find out if you have the PGA 2 ( 478 pin) processor, or the LGA 4( 775) processor. Here's the intel website with pictures for both.

http://www.intel.com...b/CS-009863.htm

The first pictures are the 775 and the second pair of pictures are the 478.

More than likely you have the 478 pin processor so you will need to find one of that type.


The Dell website says you can run these but it does not specify if it is socket 478 or socket 775.

Microprocessor type

Intel® Pentium® 4 that runs at 2.26, 2.4, 2.533, 2.66, 2.8, or 3.06 GHz internally and 533 MHz externally, or 2.4, 2.6, 2.8, 3.0, 3.2, or 3.4 GHz internally and 800 MHz externally

Level 1 (L1) cache = 8 KB first-level
Level 2 (L2) cache = 512-KB or 1-MB pipelined-burst, eight-way set associative, write-back SRAM



System chip set = Intel 865PE or 865G
System clock = 533- or 800-MHz data rate

it is the second one....if you type in processors in the dell search this comes up as one of the ones you can buy off the web site but the back is like the second set of pictures so it is a 478 pin hook up

but y is dell selling the LGA 775 off their website with a no return policy

Dell does not care if they don't fit your motherboard, because then you will need to upgrade the MB for the 775 processors. NewEgg does not have any 478 processors bigger than the 3.0.

But Directron does have them if you want to pay their price for the 3.2.

http://www.directron.com/oemp4.html

There are other businesses that sell the processors but i recommend directron simply because i have had no problems dealing with them. The unfortunate part is that the 775 processors are cheaper now.

If your old processor heatsink looks like this one you can reuse it. If you don't have the heatsink the price of this one is a good price.

I have not had any problems buying from Ebay companys so far.

well mine has the fins but it has a plastic thing to direct the air from a case fan in the back that was stock cooling......i was looking at that artic cooling thing and replaceing the back case fan and adding one of those PCI plowers from Rosewell but i don't know what im going to do....it would be nice if i can reuse the fins and just get a new case fan. i think the reason i had it go out is because it runs awfuly hot and it turned the case black and dell already replaced every thing inside but the 4600 has horable cooling

artic cooling unit http://www.newegg.co...;SubCategory=62

Rosewell blower http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835200019


and one of these case fans to replace the stock one http://www.newegg.co...SubCategory=573


i have to get a case fan that will fit b/c of so little space im going to measure mine when i get home
