I tried it. It wont see entire Speed, but it does fit. It also gets really hot really fast

As I sit up in my bed looking at all the stars, I begin to wonder... WHERE THE HECK IS MY ROOF!?

How did you get a 321 pin cpu into a 478 pin socket? What did it look like after trying? 321 flattened pins? And it posted? :eek:

Even if it fits, it shouldn't POST.

It more or less posted. It was supposed to be a 500 mhz CPU but it ended up telling my it was like a 50 mhz. bent pins.. Yes a lot of em. I got them back to normal..The CPU was pretty well cooked afterwards though. My mobo temp for the CPU said it was 250 D F.. So I put a fan on it. It went down like 8 degrees and then turned itself off. Now I have a scrapped burnet to crap CPU! yay!

LOL, the hole in the center of the S7 pin grid is larger than a Socket 478 pin grid. S7 will fit in an S370 if you bust a pin off, however.

LOL, wow you are right on that one. Forget Pins, Socket 478 is a tiny little sucker.

Do you have the fear that one day you wake up to realize none of this actually matters… ?
