Intel Pentium III Swap
Can I drop a Pentium III Tualatin 1.4GHz in a computer that came with a Pentium III Coppermine 866MHz? It's a Compaq Presario 5010US if that makes any difference. I think I need a new HS/fan also because the heat spreader on the Tualatin is larger than the Coppermine. Thanks!
I suggest you read this info
and look at Intels site for CPU specifications
then ask HP Technical support (if they have records going back 12 years)
You would have to know the exact model number of the P III 1.4GHz
866MHz max power 26Watt 1.4GHz max power 32 Watt
also check CPU voltage range of motherboard 1.75V or 1.5V ?
I've tried the HP support website and I can find the specs of this computer, but no lsit of supported processors. I've also looked for a list of supported processors for the motherboard with no success. It's a BMW 2 (Tonka) mobo, from what I've been able to find. I know the voltage is different between the two chips, but from what I've read, the mobo will automatically detect that and adjust.

If it's not possible, could I put in the highest Coppermine processor I can find, like this? - http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/Intel-Pentium%20III%201000%20-%20RB80526PZ001256%20(BX80526C1000256).html Thanks!
