I have a Aristo M754LMR M/board with a Celeron Coppermine 700 MHZ socket 370 CPU fitted.

Can a higher MHZ PIII CPU be fitted to this board and will the BIOS have to be upgraded?

Thanks,

yea you can get a faster processor but make sure its the same socket type, you shouldnt have to upgrade the bios, but you never know, chances are you are only gonna be able to increase your speed by a few hundred MHz

Um, never heard of Aristo, but whatever. Check their website for the specifications. If it (the mobo) supports PIII Coppermines chances are very good you should be able to go to at least a 1GHz PIII CPU (be careful of the FSB speeds on the CPU) without any problems. You may not have to flash your BIOS, but it would probably be a good idea. Good Luck.

It will support all PIII/Celeron processors with Coppermine core. These are avialable up to the PIII 1000EB and Celeron 1100. It won't support Tualatin core PIII's natively.

High speed Coppermine cores have the following characteristics:
1.) 0.18 Micron
2.) CPU vCore of 1.65v 1.70v, or 1.75v.

You'll hear things about "FCPGA" and "FCPGA2", but the very last Coppermine cores were FC-PGA2 just like the tualatins, so it's best to choose your core based on #1 or #2 from that list.

I have a PIII 1000EB here if you want to arrange some sort of trade!

Maybe later when I do a full upgrade.

Could be difficult, as I'am on the other side of the world - OZ.
