Hi, I've got a Ex-lease IBM ThinkCentre with Prescott Celeron. It been running for years with no bigger issue, but  the Celeron has overheating problem, or at least it is can be either too hot or too noisy.

I am think about buying a second-hand cooler CPU of eBay, and take out the Celeron. Performance wouldn't be a issue, as it mainly used for file server, but if not much price difference, why not something faster? My question is, I saw some Pentium M marked as socket 478, could I put that into the desktop Socket 478, or some other CPU worth considering?

Cheers

Thank you, especially for the Wiki link.

Still, could I get something like drop-in boards mentioned in the Wiki entry, like ct-479, search ebay, no dice.

Sorry, after read his description and realized that CT-479 only working with some Asus board.

Might be worth a shot if it is cheap, and your bios supports the required ratio management.

After read gtz's and mine link, seems like only a ASUS few board are supported for a CT-479. Even for ASUS boards if not official supported still need reflash BIOS. Without BIOS support, CT-479 on a Socket 478 are unlikely working, looks like too much hack for me.
