Can I Fit A Faster Processor On This Motherboard Because When I Try To Encode Video On DVD Complete The Task Manager Shows 100%Usage On CPU.The Computer Hangs After a Few Moments.The Processor Is A Athlon XP 2000+.When Applying Heat Sink Compound Do You Only Put It On Top Of The Chip Or All Over The Heatsink Area.
Thanks Bobs

I've actually seen systems where heatsink compound is all over the motherboard :) Some people like to call themselves engineers I suppose.
The heatsink compound only needs to be put onto the area of the processor that makes contact with the heatsink, usually the central area.

How much ram does your system have??

P.S. Encoding is very Processor intensive

Is the computer really 'hanging' - or just busy ? This task is hugely processor intensive. Don't expect to be able to do anything else.

I only ask because you may find a faster processor doesn't help all that much.
