Looking to upgrade my Intel Pentium D CPU 830 3.0 GHz processor to the latest; the board is an Intel Desktop D945GBI. Does/Did anyone else have the similar hardware and was successful in upgrading the processor?
Thanks in advance.
I found the manual for the D945GBO, not sure how similar these board are, or if the information is the same.
Hope this helps.
I would add that this board is 9 generations and 10 years out of date. There simply are no "latest" processors that can be used with it - and there were very few processors from back then that might be found at this point to use as a replacement for your Pentium D - and certainly none that are not used.
I hate to say it, but it really is time. Save yourself a lot of grief; abandon this hardware and move to something more modern...
