Upgrade Advice for 440BX

Just got a couple questions....

I have a Daewoo CB641X-BX motherboard with Intel 440BX/ZX rev 2 chipset. It is a 100Mhz FSB board. I currently have a PII 300Mhz installed and am planning to replace the cpu.

Is the fastest cpu I can install a PIII 800? Or can I use any cpu with a 100Mhz FSB once I get a slotket to control the voltage?

What are the tradeoffs between getting a PIII and a celeron?

You'll have to see if Daewoo has a website with a bios upgrade for your mobo to run a 133 fsb cpu. Otherwise, the 800 (with 100 fsb) may be the fastest cpu you can run. The slot 1 cpus cost more, so you may be better off getting a new mobo combo with cpu, or a "pc kit" with mobo, cpu/heatsink, and case. Pricewatch has pc kit listings for almost any cpu. Then, all you have to do is transfer your hardrive, video card, cd, etc to the new case. You'll also have to do a fresh install of windows with the new mobo. The athlon combos are pretty cheap, but you'll need a new power supply anyway to support them if you use your old case.

If your board supports ANY coppermine (Celeron 566 and up, PIII 650 and up, are all Coppermine), it will support the common PIII 850, and should also support the hard to find PIII 900, 1000E (the 100MHz version), and fast Celerons (up to 1.1GHz, much less powerfull than PIII's).

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

The fastest you can go is a PIII-1100E cD0. They are hard to find.

So basically, as long as I have a slotket, I can put in any 100Mhz fsb cpu?

i thought daewoo made cars!
whats next i wonder...

Overclocked athlon 1200C @ 8.5 x 166FSB + PC2700 = GOOD! :smile:

With proper BIOS upgrade and voltage adjustments, yes!
But stick with 100Mhz Coppermines, unless you want to push your luck and overclock your FSB to 133Mhz!

Daewoo makes everything from fishing reels to heavy equipment. They only recently started making cars for the US market.

Signature? We don' need no stinkin' signature!

I had a Daewoo TV and used to drive a Daewoo forklift. Daewoo has also made cars for GM, as well as various electronic and commercial items. I think they also make robotics for manufacturing.

I dint know Daewoo made motherboards, only cars!

How is the board?

I don't know about the quality of the boards, but I have seen them in AT&T computers. Let me guess, you thought AT&T only made phones!
