Those are 775 Pentium 4 and Northwood are socket 478, cannot interchange. Possibly early Core2 stuff depending on chipset.


Nope, 915 chipset. Prescott P4 only. See if you can undervolt.

Oh, I didn't know which socket Northwood used. It runs fine and after changing the termal paste it isn't all that loud. I don't think it's possible to undervolt. Also for some reason HWiNFO show only the HDD temp, I haven't tried with a different program since I'm too busy these days and haven't had time to do anything with this laptop.

I just grab this from my work (from a machine that was to old to be keeped). This is a lenovo thinkstation S20 motherboard. It has a 2 core Xeon in it which i rapidly replace with a Xeon X5690 6core to make myself a NAS. I forget to pick the Thermal sensor so i grab an other one and it worked perfectly.

I just went through my part collection and got rid of all my really old stuff, but I did keep some stuff that's not that old, but probably still old enough to be considered retro. So now the oldest parts I have are a few Intel CPUs, some RAM, a couple motherboards, and a couple GPUs. My retro collection used to be a lot bigger and use to contain some way older parts.
