The processor in the laptop was a socket 478 and so is my desktop its 
also a socket 478. So all i did was take the processor in the laptop and 
put it in my desktop. I have been running it for the last  days since I  
first posted. I kept the original cooler and fan that is in my desktop. 
I also like that it runs between 23C and 28C.
