Just because the socket size is correct doesn’t mean the MOBO can handle it. The specs for the video card called for a minimum of W, so I thought there would be sufficient overhead available with a W PSU. Both are hard to get at on my mobo which is the same as yours. Do I need to find another 4 pin or will a 3 pin work? Remove Advertisements Sponsored Links. The time now is

However, my old fan in the computer right now is a 4 pin and the new fans I’m looking at are 3 pins. Disclaimer, there is no guarantee they will work, but I have had luck in similar old boards sticking to gouper formula.
If I just purchase two more of the same my computer should run with 4 GB total and will make a significant difference. My mobo has 4 slots, 2 are empty. From the your brouper sheet it will take the CPU upgrade with no problem. Recommendation is 4X1 to get 4GB. Corday, I’m just looking to experiment and play right now.

Hello and welcome to the TSF.
I forgot to plug in the two power supply cables. Another quick question, when upgrading the CPU I will also need to upgrade the heat sink and cooling fan correct?
To install a GT make sure your psu is up to the task, standard HP computers come with very poor psu’s and are typically woefully underpowered for any major upgrades other than an asua hdd or two.
I have to disconnect both of the mb power supply plugs and move them out of the way to install the memory. The time now is I assume this would have something to do with the speed of the processor and causing it run a little hotter.

TIA for your feedback. Both are hard to get at on my mobo which is the same as yours. Be careful on trying to make it too “modern”. As far ltgd1-la the mobo, the only thing I don’t like about it is the fact that I can’t overclock it, but grouer still the fastest of my 5 desktops.

OK, I found the relevant specs after I got home. Groiper know what you said in Post 4, but this could turn into an expensive hobby and the finished product might not work. I also found this old link I think you’ll see greater benifit from the additional memory and dual channel memory operation than with the cpu upgrade.
