    I think I killed my motherboard. I tried to install an intel 3.0 ghz processor into my motherboard. My friend had it from an old set up. It was the same socket so I thought to install it myself. I end up building my computer every 2-3 years. I tried to install the cpu and I guess I didn't have the pins lined up correctly and well...bent some pins. I think I did that while locking the heatsink into place... and I think broke my motherboard. So I ebay'd a new motherboard, however I wasn't careful enough looking at the product description, my broken motherboard is "prescott ready", but ebay'd board is a springdale that can have the bios updated to work with prescott processor is what I've come to understand from the research I've done. I didn't realize this until I won the item. So I'm not really sure I understand this right or maybe there's a larger difference in the models. I'll link the soyo models

    Old Motherboard - Soyo P4-I865PE Dragon 2 v 1.0

    Ebay'd Motherboard - Soyo P4-I865PE Dragon 2

    Oh and it says the maximum compatible processor is 3.2ghz and in other places it says 3.4ghz. I'm wondering if its possible to go with the 3.4 with the ebay'd motherboard.
