I have an Asus P2B MB(440BX, PII 300, Slot1) system. I want to sell it to build a new one. Before I do, I'd like to upgrade the processor to a PIII. I've searched Pricewatch and the best deal seems to be the PIII667EB($111 boxed).
What I want to verify is if this cpu will work correctly on a 100MHz FSB clocked @ 650MHz multiplier? I'm pretty sure it will since this is below its specs. I just want to make sure there isn't something I'm not seeing before making the purchase. The PIII 550E/600E/650E/700E (boxed) all average around $130. That's why I'm going for the 133MHz FSB cpu.
just overclock your BX board to 133mhz. That will do the trick. The P3 666 is multiplier locked.

The 667 EB is a 133fsb CPU and has 5x mulitiplier, if you run it at 100mhz fsb the cpu will be running at 500Mhz. That would be a waste if you ask me. The 650E 100fsb cpu is only $96 (oem) on pricewatch I would just get that.
