Williamette, Northwood, Gallatin and early Prescott cores used Socket 478, but current Prescotts use Socket LGA-775.

Oh yeah, forgot about the Smithfield core. Those were in the Pentium D 8xx processors. There's also the Presler core which was in the Pentium D 9xx processors. Both of those are also Socket LGA-775

Yeah, LGA-775 processors have that stepping around the metal plate that protects the core. It's there because of the plate that comes on on top to hold down the processor, since it doesn't use the traditional ZIF socket.

Me and lhuser experts on S478

another way is if you open your case, take off the heatsink and it will have some numbers and letter at the top of your CPU, on 478 boards, the letters and numbers are

mPGA478B

Just look for the numbers (in bold) and thats your socket number.
