    I want to replace a mobo that now had bad capacitors with a new Pent 4
    board. I would like to slavage and keep the CPU [Athlon].

    Is is cinpatible with the new board. New board is designed for Athlon
    too, it says. May I expect ptorblems or willl this work?

    I don't think that is possible?
    P4:s and Athlons have different size & pinout don't match last time I
    looked. What motherboard claims compatibility with both processor types?
