hi all

I currently own a P4 1.7 Northwood 512 kb cache, with 512 SDR Ram, the
M/B has a FSB of 400mHz.

I 'd like to upgrade my system by getting a M/B that will support DDR
Ram, but i'd like to keep my P4 1.7 for now. If I buy a 533mHz or 800
mHz M/B will my processor be compatible? Might it be possible to
overclock it using the 533 setting to 2.26 gig (ie 133mHz x 17 = 2.26
instead of 100 mHz x 17 = 1.7 mHz) or have I got the wrong end of the
stick?

thanks for looking

Gaz

Yes, you can re-use your 100/400MHz P4 1.7GHz CPU
at100MHz on most 533MHz/800MHz boards. We are a dealer
and can sell you one.

Thanks.
