If I install a new processor, will my computer automatically set the voltage?

 

Forgot to add, are all processors of the same speed pretty much the same?  I mean for games and stuff.

Short answer? yes. as long as you have not changed any of the settings in the bios.

Not with the same motherboard.

 

You need a Motherboard for an Intel to use a Intel CPU and even then the CPU must be on the list of supported CPUs.

 

A AMD CPU based Motherboard can only support AMD CPUs and they must be on the supported CPU list for that Motherboard.

 

The Hardware is different including the CPU socket. For example: A AMD CPU has the pins to go into the socket, Whereas the Intel CPU has no pins. The Pins are in the socket and not on the CPU with Intel.

 

Sorry to have to give bad news.

 

Good Luck

Roger

I'm really bad with the installing of the motherboard. . .last time i tired i messed up and I think i broke it.  Guess I can only hope my CPU can play blade and soul.  For some reason I can't play starwars: the one republic.  I get a 0x0000101.  base one what i looked it, it had somethign to do with the CPU.

 About that, I assumed you already understood that you must match the motherboard with a compatible processor ie Intel boards for intel procs/ amd boards for amd processors. There are several links here that can help you with a basic understanding of how to upgrade a computer properly, here are a few links...

Here is another that can help us help you better when posting a problem you are having,

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/115955/before-you-post-about-a-problem/

 

Before you begin changing your processor make sure you have a few things

Thermal paste.

  You will need this to coat the top of the processor where the heatsink rests to create a thermal "link" to dissipate extreme heat produced by the processor. Never attempt to work with a hot processor!

 

A heatsink.

  You can use the one that you have or you can choose to upgrade as a better cpu cooler can keep the processor cooler thereby improving lifespan and performance. Always clean the contact surfaces thoroughly before applying new thermal paste. Use it sparingly. It doesn't take much to work effectively and too much can actually hinder cooling and make a big mess. Thermal paste should be applied using an amount about the size of a grain of rice. Use a credit card or as I like to do, use a plastic baggie or exam glove (powderless) stretched tightly over your finger to spread it.

 

Use youtube to search for "how to" videos. Search for things like "how to remove an intel (or amd if thats what you have) heatsink" or "how to replace an intel (or amd) cpu" etc. Try to be specific and watch a few as some may have more info than others and thus be more helpful.

 

 Use extreme caution when working with  cpu's (processor) with pins as the pins on them are extremely fragile. They are easily bent and broken so handle them with care. Never set them down on the pin side!

 

I may have told you things you already know but just in case I thought I would lay out some basics and go from there. Better safe than sorry.
