Just a wee question that I've been pondering... Is it possible to add a SLOT-1 CPU to a motherboard (Intel 82810) that already has a Socket 370 CPU (Celeron 466) installed and thus have a dual CPU setup?
I'll assume this Socket370 CPU is on a slocket, and you have a second slot in the motherboard.
Yet model "82810" seems to signify that it's an Intel i810 motherboard--in which case I don't see how you could have two CPU slots. You might have a slot <i>and</i> a socket, with the slot there only for backwards compatibility, in which case the slot and the socket are probably mutually exclusive. Thus no go on dual CPUs.
Assuming it's a dual Slot1, because I've never heard of the sort of i810 motherboard described above...
It <i>should</i> be possible, as long as the CPU steppings aren't too far apart. If the specced Vcores the two CPUs are different, it might be a problem; it depends on the motherboard and any slocket you're using. For example, with the 440LX chipset of yore, you could combine an old 300MHz Deschutes PII with a newer, lower-voltage 300MHz Klamath PII, <i>if</i> the motherboard had built-in VRMs capable of managing separate voltage levels per slot. You might have to consult your motherboard manual for that info.
