CPU question


Recommended Posts

A noob question about CPU's.

 

What happens if you put a CPU rated for 2MB L2 cache in a MB rated at 1MB? Does it work but only at 1MB, or would it just not work?

Motherboards don't care about the processor's cache, it either supports the CPU or not

Those are specifications, not a CPU support list.

 

All those 5xx P4's have 1MB of cache and that particular Dell only shipped with those processors. It just reflects what you should see on a stock Dimension 4700 ;)

So I guess if the board supports a socket 775 P4, any cache will work then.

 

They should have a CPU support list somewhere, it doesn't necessarily support every P4 out there
