Question

Lots of questions!!!

Could I mount an external cpu to my motherboard? And if so could I use SATA or PCIe or some type of data cable to make the cpu and motherboard communicate? could they communicate at all?
Could the external cpu work alongside another cpu just fine?
Could I make a mount for an external cpu?
Every 2 years AMD and INTEL release a different type of something (not sure what) for how the CPU operates (I believe haswell is one of the terms), what is it?
Is there any way I could make my GPU assist my CPU in processing information and performing tasks?
Sorry if any of these questions are obvious

Answer
This has been done for years with

Beowolf clusters and Proxmox. Example video given.


The thing is, if you want to boost your WINDOWS PERFORMANCE, well you didn't ask that. For that the answer is no.

Until you tell more

I can't guide. While the answer is yes to the basic questions, it won't apply to Windows.
Beowolf and Proxmox do add processing power but I wonder if you left out a detail about "I want to speed up my Dell Inspiron 520 running Windows XP" and "How would I do that?"

Put the guide without the question but whatever

System?

I never mentioned any system nor did I see one or leave anything out. And I have what I need already so that's enough.

(NT) Until you tell more the answer has to be no.

YOU have to supply the correct question

tell what it is you want to accomplish with this.

No

I supplied a list of questions so I don't know what you're talking about and i'm not telling you anything.

And you need to add more detail.

But if this is the usual Windows OS, then the answer is no. You won't be doing this.

A little more about the GPU. The GPU is already assisting the CPU. Don't believe it? Unplug the GPU.

you got to help us to help you

you have a couple of questions that requires additional information in order to get good answers. If you do not want to answer questions in order to good answers, then you could get some bad information that could damage your system. or do you think those who give FREE help can read minds???
