Abit BP6 and fast PentiumIII/Celeron chips

Post by Martin Tilsted » Thu May 23, 2002 7:12 pm

I got a ABit BP6 motherboad with 2 400Mhz processores and it is getteng
a bit slow, so i wanted something faster. I know that I can get a 1200
Mhz pentionIII with socket 370 but I don't know if the motherboad will
work with such a fast chip, so what I want to know is if anyone have
used any >1Ghz processor with their ABit BP6 or know why/why not it
should work.

I doubt it, bus is spec at 66Mzh. I also beleive PIII use different
voltage,
Check out http://bp6.gamesquad.net/PIII.phtml for some pointers.

Martin, let us fellow BP6 owners know if you find any upgrade options for
the BP6. Then again, with new system pricing being so low for unbelievable
cpu speeds and storage capabilities, I doubt I'd even purchase a new fan at
my BP6 ;-)
