Is a motherboard with 400MHZ FSB compatible with a P4 2.5GHZ 533MHZ FSB? Is a P4 533MHZ backwards compatible, can it act as if it had only 400MHZ FSB?
I bought a motherboard about 4 months ago that is made to support 400MHZ FSB P4 processors. It's an ABIT BD7-RAID. I was about to buy P4 2.4 400MHZ FSB then came P4 2.5 but with 533MHZ FSB? so are they compatible?
well I've seen a couple of 400MHZ P4 2.5s in price comparison websites but I don't know if they're true. They cost around 460-500 too...P4 2.5s 533MHZs are still around 600 right? Well I'll just get my friend the 2.4 400MHZ coz we've been waiting to build the PC for 4+ months now! If he has money for a 4000 PC then he'd have enough for an upgrade when newer technologies come...thanks guys!
