Hey guys, one of my systems at our business has been running really slow (quite frankly, it has always been slow). It being our central PC, I have decided to do a ram and CPU upgrade since I noticed the parts were only about $50.
I'm running XP. 2gig ram arrived from Amazon for $7 and the system feels noticeably faster.
The mobo is a foxconn 661fx7mf-s. I bought a Pentium D 935 (dual-core). Officially, all research shows the CPU is not supported. I jumped the gun when I saw it supported LGA775 and didn't notice it specifically noted only Pentium 4 support. For $17.99, I am not too worried. But I am going to try it anyway. The mobo runs a sis661fx chipset and similar boards do support this CPU.
I know the guy who originally built this PC went pretty budget with it so I am hoping this is just an earlier model or something since it uses the same chipset.
My real question is, is there is a chance it will be supported?
If anything, the current fan runs way to fast and loud. So I'm hoping this new heatsink/fan will do a better job at keeping the CPU cool.
