Default CPU Help



My buddy has a free server and I need to figure out what socket CPU this is. Rep to the one who figures out the socket.

Is it AMD or Intel?

I'd have a guess at an Intel socket 370 (PGA370) CPU.

That part number keeps coming up as an HP/Compaq heatsink on Google.

What does the other side look like?

Exactly. A heatsink for a Intel socket 370 (PGA370) CPU.

Yeah looks like a P3 or something, there are pins round the outside and a large space in the middle

That definately is a S370 CPU, since AMd (S462) CPUs don't have any chips behind (well...all of them I saw).

Likewise. I've only seen a couple of mobile AMD chips with the resistive elements under the substrate. This is definitely an Intel chip, and S370 was my first guess as well.

The photo on Wikipedia shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Intel_Socket_370.JPG should help out as well. Notice the two beveled edges and how the CPU looks the same.
