Hi all

I have a ASUS CUBX mobo. What is the max processor I can install to give this old warhorse a new lease on life? I currently have a 600EB processor in it. I would like to update it to 1.3/1.4 gig PIII.

The ASUS website seems to be hiding this info rather well.
It is the last of the 440BX based boards...

I have tried a few other resources (incl. USENET) and have been unable to get help. I can provide more info if neccesary. Can THGC Forum help??

Cheers

After the initial board release and reviews, ASUS released a bios patch to cater for Coppermine processors.

I understood that since then other PIIIs have come out that my board could support - not sure. Graphics/networking and comms are more my forte....

The newer PIII's are called Tualatins. Although you can't use them directly on your specific mobo, you can get the <A HREF="http://www.powerleap.com/Products/370T.htm" target="_new">Powerleap adapter</A>. Plub that into your socket, and then plug one of the Tualatins (1.2, 1.26, 1.4) into the adapter.
