Question Hello is it possible to use e5450 on g41m01s1? Its an lga 775 motherboard and there doesnt seem to be much info about it

What other markings are on that motherboard? Take good pictures, front and back.

You will not lose anythink if you just try (provided that the motherboard works with whatever CPU is already there).

These boards were "modern" like fifteen years ago. Most resources are down. One website suggests this is Samsung motherboard, although I don't think Samsung ever made desktop boards.

What CPU do you currently have in it? If it's a close relative, I expect it to work, if not, more likely than not it won't. Prebuilt motherboards of the era -- it certainly at least looks like one -- had a particularly poor compatibility list. At least the CPU came out a bit before the chipset, so there's at least a fighting chance at compatibility.

You can buy that CPU for $10 to $15 or so, so it's not much of a gamble.

Ive also bought the cpu already so its kind of a pain if it doesnt work
it's a hit or miss with these lga 775 boards. It could work fine, which is of course, the desired outcome. Or that cpu could boot, desktop could work normally for a few days, then you get random restarts / black screens later on. Or worst case scenario, it might not boot at all.

So let's hope it works fine. Goodluck.

Seeing as that CPU is LGA 771 and your motherboard is LGA 775 it's absolutely NOT a simple drop in. This is why you always research before you buy anything.

Here's only one example of the work involved in making it work (if it will even be recognized by the BIOS):

i bought my e5450 modded alr and it actually worked immediately (well atleast after i got my gpu) i was quite scared that i pushed too hard coz it didnt fit in the socket immediately coz im p sure its like a drop in immediately no need pressure to get in the socket so yeh still worked eh

The minimum requirement for Genshin is a GT 1030, and your 750ti is slightly faster than a 1030.. so I think you can use medium graphics settings in Genshin without much lag. Anyway, have fun gaming. You can send me pm here if you want to talk about Genshin. Btw, I play in the American server. :)
