(Building a new system)

ASUS P4C800E-Del board, hyperth capable

matching 512 RAM in the 2 A slots

P4 2.8 CPU (Northwoods (right name?))

I thought I was all set to hyperthread,
but spotted something in a post yesterday
that seems to say that P4 won't support
hyperth?

Tell me it isn't SO!!

Therein lies a problem.

I bought this "slightly" used (always on a budget)
and it came in the original plastic container but
not with the original outer box.

Any other way to tell?

Once I fire it up, and if I have the BIOS set
to support hyperthr, will it let me know if it
does or not, or is there some other way to
find out?

Thanks!!

yes it will when you go to look at your cpu usage in xp their will be two differnt cpu monitors i gusse you would call them. If you are hyper threading. It kind of treats it like two cpus.

I'm quite sure all Northwood cores support Hyperthreading.

A good tool for identifying CPUs:
