Hi,

I have an Acorp 6A815EPD Mainboard sitting here waiting on me to decide which parts I'm going to use to build it into a complete system. Firstly, I'd like to know the absolute best processors this motherboard can take. The specs off the following site - <A HREF="http://www.digit-life.com/articles/i815epacorp6a815epd/" target="_new">http://www.digit-life.com/articles/i815epacorp6a815epd/...;/A> - show that it
has "2 Sockets 370 for Intel Pentium III, 500MHz~1130 MHz and higher" processors. That "and higher" part makes me wonder. Also, in researching the Pentium 3 (Apparently the best processor the board can take) I see that there are many variations, above and beyond 1 Ghz, differing amounts and speeds of cache, standard and low power versions, 0.13 and 0.18 micron versions, etc.

All the research has left my brain thoroughly scrambled. ;)  Can someone here please tell me what the best processor(s) are for this board?

Thanks...

You won't find a 1.13GHz CPU for it. Your board is not compatable with .13 micron PIII's unless you buy some socket to socket adapters that cost $30 each. Your best hope is the PIII 1000EB.
