OT: Looking for a Pentium M765 (or maybe M780 - not sure it that will work)


 

I have a scope (not Tektronix or HP/K/A) that uses the BCM MX855 mobo with a
1.3 Celeron.

I'd like to give a late life performance boost and an told a Pentium M765
will do the job and maybe even an M780 (though that may depend on BIOS
levels).

Can anyone help? If you also have stick on PC2700/PC3200 1GB Ram that would
be great too!

Thanks
David

Hi David I have 8 Pentium, 4 Pentium 3 and 2 Pentium 4. But none
have a M in their markings like M765 or M780.
Have a couple 1 gb 2700 and 1 3200, several 512mb of this speed.
Have 5 AMD processors also.
But I am across the pond from you it seems.

David, here is the chip data. Lots of info to be found using a search. I have several Dell desktops and HP laptops from that era but you need to state if it is a desktop board or a converted laptop. The Dell desktops did use an M series processor even tho it was meant for mobile.  https://www.techpowerup.com/cpu-specs/pentium-m-765.c153Bill

I have the following CPU's spare if any of these will be of use:

1x SL6F9 - M705
1x SL7EG - M725
1x SL7SA - M740
2x SL7EN - M745
1x SL7V3 - M765
1x SL7VB - M780

I'm sure I could send one or two vaguely in your direction for the cost of shipping etc. :) (I'm in Japan, but it shouldn't cost too much for such a small parcel if you can't find anything locally)


 

Thank you Jared, I've sent a pm to arrange shipping details etc..

David

But I can get Crucial brand 1GB on eBay for about £5 ... I didn't know the price had dropped so far!

I will check what I have for ram when I get back in the lab. I have a few
boxes full of the stuff. Of many types.

If you're going to replace the CPU only, make sure you get the correct socket-type for the replacement CPU.


 

The CPUs in question only come in one socket type!

AFAIK both the M765 and M780 are socket 478 which is what this board has.
