Can CPU for T440p work on a pc?

#1 Post by Peter Linu » Tue May 12, 2020 10:55 pm

Hiyall,
I just built a pcNAS (desktop) from parts. The CPU is v-e-r-y slow. I have several i5 and i7 CPUs from past modification of laptops. Will they work in the desktop pc?

It's not impossible but it's not likely, unless you happened to/went out of your way to get a motherboard that uses the G3 mobile CPU socket that the T440p Haswell mobile CPUs use.

Depends on what platform your pcNAS is using. If you say it is even slower than the laptop i5's you have lying around, it most likely is one of those low end AMD APU's and won't even support any i5's or i7's and even soldered on place

Just for clarification: what's the motherboard you used for the pcNAS that you built?

The model number you put does not exist. But I think it is one of the 8th gen or 9th gen Intel based ones and in that case hell no you can't do that, and even the cheapest core i5 is gonna run circles around the CPUs on the T440p.

I don't understand this... Why would you want put a laptop CPU from T440p into a desktop motherboard? Which btw is based on Intel B360 chipset and therefore allows you to use 8th and 9th gen. desktop CPUs. What the hell? I don't believe it's s-l-o-w, I have a desktop with 6 core i5-9600kf CPU and I would say it is very powerful. What are you running on that NAS? MATLAB simulations?
