Would an Intel SE440BX-2 support a celeron 1ghz

Would an Intel Seattle SE440BX-2 mobo support a celeron 800? Any idea? Intel's Website states that this mobo will support up to 850 Mhz P3's, but I'm not sure if that would also mean Celeron 2's (like the 900 or 1100 Mhz celeron w/100Mhz FSB).I ve read in some forums that it suports but just to make sure before buying a celeron 1100 mhz? for my intel se 440 bx2 with bios p17.

Anyone know plzzzz help me??

It should run any Coppermine in a slocket, and any Tualatin in the special PowerLeap slocket.

1.) Celeron 800, yes
2.) PIII up to the special 1000E (with 100MHz FSB). Because this was a low production processor, they didn't bother to list it in their compatabilities.
3.) Celeron 1100, yes, it's still Coppermine. But the PIII 850 will still beet it in some apps.
4.) Consider the iP3t from Powerleap, with a Celeron 1200 Tualatin. This combo is available with cooler for $169.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

thanks for the nice advice.the freq of this mobo is 66/100 mhz auto .could u tell me what r the last coppermine cpu 1 ghz or 1.2 ghz

if i am not mistaken the last for celeron coppermine is 1000 mhz

A word of caution, i'm not sure but i think celeron II won't work on BX chipsets because of the split Vtt and Vcc power planes. But the more senior members will probably know for sure. Celeron II goes to 1.1GHz, PIII goes to 1.1GHz Currently celeron 1.2GHz & PIII >= 1.133GHz are tualatin.

The last Coppermine Celeron was the 1.1GHz (1100MHz). The 1.2GHz is a Tualatin and requires the special Powerleap iP3t adapter (which can be had with the 1.2GHz CPU and a nice cooler for $169). All Coppermine Celerons (aka Celeron II) are based on the PIII. In fact these are defective PIII's with the defective part disabled. There are two banks of Cache built into the PIII, and Cache is the part of the chip most likely to be defective. So when one bank is bad, they disable it and call it a Celeron. In high end apps (ones that use more cache), the PIII 850 will outperform the Celeron 1100.
