    The chipset of the motherboard is Intel845D.

    Good question.

    This asus site states no:

    http://www.asus.com/inside/Techref/p4fsb533.htm

    But it is possible to find results of running P4 1.8 GHz at @2.4 GHz.

    That is a P4 fsb400 run as 18x133.

    4x133=533, so it can do it.

    You see Duckers hardware specification here:
    http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=253919

    This page states that there exist an fsb400 version of 2.6 GHz, that
    runs on p4b266-c from pcb version 1005.002

    Check your pcb mumber. It is normally printed among the pci slots.

    I also found this article about oc with your motherboard:

    Here is another good thread:
    http://www.motherboard-forum.com/asus/P4B266C_user_please_fall_in_575575.html

    I am afraid I can't do it better for you than that.

    Well, bios download:
    The beta bios from here should be fine:
    ftp://ftp.asuscom.de/pub/ASUSCOM/BIOS/Socket_478/INTEL_Chipset/i845d/P4B266-C/

    best regards

    i think that is for the bios version.
    Anyone knows how to find out CPU support by looking inside flash upgrade
    bios file?
