which is better the 3.0 Ghz northwood processor or the 3.0 Ghz Prescott for the 915 Mobo

Not worried abt heat just want performance

915 based motherboards are generally LGA775.If you are buying a LGA775 based board and looking for a CPU for it,then these chips are available only in Prescott series.
Northwood core seized at Socket478. :wink:

ASUS does have a 915 mobo for the Socket478 . Any how its more logical to go in for the Prescott series due to the large cache and thus a better performance. Yes the Prescott series is not good for overclocking as the heat is a big problem. My advice go for the Prescott series.

I saw a rescue kit for prescott while reading some CPU reviews. One can google it to find it.

From what I saw, the kit looked like a First Aid Box. It had a USB fan to provide additional cooling for CPU and a Blank CD to backup important data, says prescott is not as immune to viruses as it should be.

Lastly, it was interesting.
