So far, if the pin count matches... A very new board will support any older CPU...

"CPU Socket 478 for Intel Pentium 4/Celeron
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology ready
Supports Intel Prescott CPU
Chipset Intel 865PE
Intel ICH5
Front Side Bus 800/ 533/ 400 MHz"

That's geek for "all P4 478 CPUs".

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
