Yes, Asus is wrong. You can run up to the PIII 1000EB on your motherboard. Asus's misinformation has caused me a bit of grief, selling motherboards that supported super-fast precessors and people telling me I'm lying.

The reason for their misinformation is that, several months after releasing a board, they no longer test it with new CPU's. When they quit testing it, they quit validating them, basically they don't care about you any longer.

All motherboards that support the PIII 667 also support the PIII 1000EB. But in your case I have more information: Several years ago, people were running them in this very forum on your very board.

Your board also supports Tualatins, if you buy a Tualatin adapter, and those went to 1400MHz.

Just plug in <A HREF="http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=S370TUA&cat=CPU" target="_new">This Adapter</A> and put the CPU into it.

The PIII 1.4 is still fairly expensive, but if you can find a Tualatin Celeron 1100, you can set it at 133MHz bus for 1466MHz, and get better performance than the Tualatin Celeron 1400, similar to the PIII 1.4.

The adapter has BSEL (bus speed detection) and VID (Voltage ID) jumpers on it, so even if you had a difficult overclock you could set the adapter at 1.65v and 133 bus, and your mother's Dell would even detect the Tualatin Celeron 1100 as a 1466 with the needed overclocking voltage.

i notice the celeron 1100 you suggest has 128k cache?
http://cgi.ebay.com/Intel-Celeron-1100-1-1-GHz-370-128-...
is that enough to run like a p3 1.0 ?

i'd also like to ask you if the below memory i got is suited for the cuv4x ?

if not then no bigee, i can just sell it and get something else. how bout the ram in the celeron auction?

woops sorry, this is what you're talking about?

Absoultely NOT the first one, Tualatin Celerons have 256k, like the last one you linked.

I'd probably get my RAM from Compgeeks or Crucial. Compgeeks has it used.
