What Is A Processor In A Computer


What Is A Processor In A Computer

The processor is also known as the CPU, which are the instructions that drive the computer. It is the (Brains) of the computer. This also has been called the microprocessor. The function mainly is responsible for processing and doing computer operations.

To identify the processor is done by two main ways. How wide and how fast.

The speed of the cpu is measured in MHz which stands for megahertz. Millions of cycles per second, and we all know faster is a lot more superior!

The width is in three specifications, which are Inter2nal registers, Data input and output bus and the Memory address bus.

Internal registers:

Is an instruction to a computer/processor by a computer program.

Data input/output bus:

Input: take the keyboard and the mouse is where you input data. This operation is inputting data.

  • performs a series of transforming input information into and output.

Output: is a visual, perception of the brain’s ability to understand what the hands are feeling.

Memory address bus: is the software and hardware, for the computer storage memory.


Quad-core Processor

(IC) integrated circuit, quad-core is with four
independent units which are called cores that read the CPU. They read with other circuits and
memory management. With these quad-cores,
they run multiple instructions at the same time. The overall speed increases programs/data. The four independent cores are designed, all in one package. Therefore, placed into the motherboard CPU socket.

Multi-core Processor

The multi-core is two or more processors that are concurrent multi-cores for enhanced performance, and to reduce power consumption as well as being more efficient. This is a single physical processor which contains two or more processors. These processors are also known as the IC, and called dies, that multiple dies packed together. Multi-core enables your system to achieve more assignments with a greater long-term system performance.

AMD CPU Motherboard Combo

AMD CPU Motherboard Combo

When you build your own computer, the motherboard of the computer would determine the type of CPU that would be applicable or the CPU will be able to dictate the type of motherboard to be used. It is ideal to note that the ATX motherboard is capable of replacing the old AT motherboard for the fact that it is smaller, not complicated in working with and is capable of supporting the more I/O devices. The power supply to the motherboard is the P1 containing both the 20 and 24 power connections. The motherboard uses the mouse and the keyboard which are either ps/2 or the USB connections. The memory slot is the DIMMs together with the expansion slot consisting of AGP and PCI slots.

The motherboard further comprises the 2 IDE connections and at least a single SATA connections. The ATX motherboard is fitted with the soft power switch features that ensure a slow shutdown of the power (Kaplan and Howard, 44).

Both the BTX motherboards and ATX are compatible. The only existing difference is in the ability of the BTX to facilitate a smooth flow of air that assists in cooling the CPU. It is also fitted with the intake vent on the front of the case and exhaust at the back. The CPU together with the memory modules are fixed parallel with the flow of the air to prevent the blocking of cooling. The NLX motherboards are used in the low or personal computers and equally support the riser cards. The riser cards are plugged into the motherboard so that it supports
any additional expansion of the slots. The riser cards are equally known as the daughter board. The tracings of the copper at the back of the motherboard provide for the bus system that capable of connecting a broad range of the components and also making the power to flow into the computer. The motherboard consists of the 20 or 24 pin P1 connector, a 40 pin IDE connector, SATA connector, 34 pin floppy driver connector together with the 50 or 68 pin SCSI connector.

The most recent expansion slots consist of the PCIe, AGP, PCIx and PCI slots. The PCIe slots are the fastest and are capable of replacing the AGP slots. PCI are white in color and are identifiable by being longer in the motherboard. AGP slots are different in that they are shorter and brown. The PCI slots can be many. However, the recent computers can only support a single AGP or PCIe slots but not all of them (Sweldens, Wim, and Peter, 92).

Lets Talk About The “Component Compatibility” Importance

“Component Compatibility” Importance – and don’t forget, if you want to upgrade at a later date.

All system builds require compatible components, in saying that, what I mean is to keep in mind when we purchase components, they all need to fit, form and functions and so on.  Therefore you need to figure out what motherboard you would like first.  Say you want to go with an Asus ATX AMD Motherboard.

Asus ATX AMD motherboard

  • The Asus is the manufacturer of the (PCB) printed circuit board which is configured for the AMD processor.  Which has to match up with the socket on the PCB.
  • The AMD FX-Series Processor  (Socket AM3+  /AM3) is the chipset for the processor CPU, Chipset and Graphics Features. This processor supports that motherboard and socket.
  • This motherboard features the powerful AMD 990FX platform, optimizing PCI express allocation in multiple GPU configurations. The GPU will supply the Nvidia SLI ready Video Card. The PCIe and the PCI slots, you got to make sure you have enough to take what you want. There are different types of video cards that either take one or the other of these slots.
  • SATA connection, how many do you need?  How many components that will use the SATA connection. Such as how many hard drives, cd-roms and so on.  If you decide to get a floppy drive, That cable will come with the motherboard.  The SATA cable comes with it too, I think only two of them.
  • ATX chassis which has to line up and have the correct internal connections.
  • RAM is the same thing, the function and how much you want is going to depend on the slots that are on the PCB to.
  • The Power supplied functions, what’s it going to take to run everything and if you upgrade later on you might want to think of that as well.


Remember this is a Compatibility breakdown, if you would like a brief description of the components I have mentioned, then please see my component page on my website. https://buildyourowncpu.com/component.com

Introduction to Build Your Own CPU

1.  This would be my pride and joy, just knowing that I wrote the instructions and anybody could be able to build your own cpu.  I have created a Step by Step instructions for what it takes to manufacture a computer.  Within the build, you will find extensive documentations with the manufacturing instructions and a list of components needed.  The list of components also has a short description of what their functions are.  I would also like to explain to you why my review would be an asset to you.  Feeling of self-worth:  I know this statement is very important to me.   Cost:  I know by experience to do it yourself, is much less expensive than to purchase them already manufactured.  You get what you want:  I am dedicated to the AMD system because, in my experience, I also have found out that this is a much faster system with a lower cost.  When you purchase, You know what you got and have the ability to upgrade later on, as you grow.


2.  Coming up with the components and having to research them to get what you want, does take some time to do.  Also, you could come up with a compatibility issue when purchasing the components.  When manufacturing them yourself, you could damage the unit, if you don’t follow the appropriate directions.  Take the Video Card, for instance, if you also don’t order the correct video card to meet your needs.



3.  I am all about helping people, and I care what you think. Please take the opportunity to write your comments on this review good or bad about Build Your Own CPU.  You may also use this space for any questions you may have.  Remember this is all about, YOU!


Here Is what Build Your Own CPU is all about!

Build Your Own CPU is a Website which shows you in-depth on how to build your own computer.  I have spelled out and designed out what it takes to do so.  I have always enjoyed the opportunity, as well as giving you the ability to have the know-how and the understanding of the meaning of each component, with a brief description.

Many people have written about building your own computer, but it is all relative.  As well as they may make it look like that is what they are trying to do, but their hearts are not into it like mine.  Which indeed might make my site look much easier to follow.


Want to get started manufacturing your own computer? Then follow this Website now.

Many of us have written about building your own computer, however, they certainly haven’t done it like I have.  But what’s important is you can follow my instructions much easier.  They are well drawn out and very easy for anybody to read.  As well as they give you the feeling of wanting to be able to do this.  Just read some of my comments!





There are plenty of other variations, but if you are looking for a plan, you could do a lot worse than the following mine.  They just don’t have their heart into it.  Seriously, if your looking for a starting point start here.  Just look at the details below and you decide.  You see one of my pages have these images on them to show where the processor goes and indicates the polarity as Pin 1. which that is a very important step. Then it shows that the process fan sits on top of the processor and clips to the motherboard.








ME, how can you go wrong. no, all kidding aside we strive on helping people! At any point of your journey throughout your build, I am here to help you.



Final Opinion

You get what you want, is the most affordable and having the abilities to achieve.

The Purpose of the Motherboard


Central Communication Connection Point The Brain


The motherboard is designed for different types of components, for instance, each manufacturer of the motherboard must take the same manufacturer of the processor. Let us say you purchased AMD (Advance Micro Device) motherboard, then the processor must also be a certain AMD (Advance Micro Device) component. Also, the RAM (random access memory) is another specific type. Users can often upgrade some components, but will eventually need to upgrade to a newer motherboard.


The scenario would be the opposite if you had an Intel Motherboard.  It would be Do not use on the AMD processor instead of the Intel.  Note, it is specific types as well not just the manufacturer.  As I mentioned above the RAM also is another specific type.


Remember while the motherboard in this scenario was using the AMD, another component that wasn’t mentioned is the Chassis itself. Therefore when you purchase the motherboard you’re going to want it to line up in the chassis itself.  So you would want to get an AMD atx board.  For instance, let’s say we want to go with an intel atx motherboard, then everything would have to be wrapped around the Intel specifications.  Well, I hope I didn’t confuse you more. Lol!


Before I leave you I wanted to clarify The Purpose of the Motherboard.  While motherboards are claimed to be the “Brains” of the computer, they do nothing but provide power and providing connections on their own.  The PCB (printed circuit board) will not function without all the other components installed.

What I think about building your own CPU

About DonnaHello, everybody, All I can say is WOW what an accomplishment! My build your own cpu is done, it took me a little while because I was writing my documentation or instructions so everybody could be able to have the same impression of the accomplishment that I do. I really do enjoy being able to build something with my own hands.
