Can I switch out my Intel Pentium 4 1.8 GHz with my Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz?

by on February 18, 2013

Q: I have an older computer with an Intel pentium 4 with a speed of 1.8 GHZ. But I also have a pentium 4 with a speed of 3.0 GHZ. Can I substitute the fast one for the slow one or is there a compatibility problem?

    It depends on your motherboard. You’d need to find the make and model for your motherboard, and check to see if it will support the faster processor.
