Can LENOVO MOTHERBOARD 9445A32 support Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 AW80577T6400 64 bit cpu?

Can LENOVO MOTHERBOARD  9445A32 support Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 64 bit cpu?

CPU-Z says that the motherboard has:

             Intel Core Duo T2300E

Code Name: Yonah

Package: Socket 479 mPGA

Technology: 65 nm                         Core VID:  0.950 V

Chipset: i945GM Rev: 3

 

The Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 64 bit AW80577T6400 processor came out of an Acer Aspire which the socket has printed on it mPGA479M

 I'm currently looking up mPGA479M to what it's story is but does this mean that the T6400 could fit and work in a Socket 479 mPGA?

 

ark.intel.com lists T2300E corresponding socket as being PPGA478

ark.intel.com lists T6400 corresponding socket as being PGA478

 What's the difference between PPGA478 and PGA478?

Solved! See the solution

I don't The sockets are the same size and shape, but the CPU just won't work.  Your machine has a 667 mHz FSB (Front Side Bus) and the T6400 needs 800 mHz.  Your machine's CPU is a Yonah and the T6400 is a Penryn.

 

There are 64-bit processors, like the T7100, T7300, T7400, T7500 that should work for you

I remember finding some documentation somewhere on the net saying there was a different type of T6400 that would work in a R60 but the T6400 I have wasn't that particular type and I realized a while back that it wasn't possible but I had to double check. This R60 is an old but very expandable machine. I had to flash the BIOS so it could support a different WiFi Adapter: Intel Link 5100 AGN; And plus I think I had to flash so that the system would support a larger hard drive of 320 GB. I still need to see if I can find a DVD-RW+ or Blu-ray burner that would replace the current DVD player.

T6400 CPUs are all Penryn class processors.  They will not work in an R60
