Help me install my CPU

Hi all, im new to these boards and i need a bit of help. I know most of the basics and have installed RAM + a new video card into my system. Now im looking to put in a p3 600 mhz to replace my 450.

My current mobo is the Asus p2-99 (100 FSB ) , but in the manual it only liste jumper settings for up to processors 550 in speed. Would the 600 work in my system ? Would putting it in , put my mobo / cpu etc in danger of overheating ? Also do I need to bother adjusting the jumpers and mulitpliers, or can i just plug in the card and go . I'm a newbie when it comes to install CPUs and dont know much about overclocking etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thnx.

  1. you should be able to just plug it in, check your manual for info on changing the multiplier. they arent that much different, heat is not a problem.
