I would like to identify if my processors are compatible and if my CPU is compatible with my motherboard. The specification of my motherboard is PT800CE-A. When I boot my computer, it is displaying Pentium 4 and I think that would be related to the single core hyper threading at 3.0 GHz.
Motherboard, Processors & CPU Compatibility
If you can successfully boot your computer, then it means that the processors that you have on the computer are compatible with your motherboard even if they are Pentium 4. In case they were incompatible, then the computer will not even load. What you should be concerned about is the speed that your computer is going to operate at. Since the processor is not from the same manufacturer as the motherboard, the speed at which the computer operates may be tremendously slow, and therefore you will need to check that out. In case it happens to be that way, then you will need to get a processor that is from the same manufacturer as the motherboard.
