P-4 Socket 478 upgrade



My rig is home made.
The mobo is a Soyo P4X-400 Dragon Lite. The chip is a P-4 2.4Ghz.
I have obtained a P-4 3.06Ghz chip for an upgrade.
I have done all my homework.
The board will take up to a 3.06. I have reflashed it to the latest bios that supports the new chip features.
The board will now support hyperthreading.
My question is this: will my XP Pro. S/P-3 detect the new chip as an alien, and request another activation?
I don’t want to paint myself into a corner.



The short answer is no it should not require reactivation.


It [U]should not [/U]require reactivation as long as you only changed 1 main part
