Question Asus Motherboard P2B-DS

I know this motherboard (Asus Motherboard P2B-DS) supports RAM of PC100, but would it take the PC133 too?

ok thanks but the manual says it supports PC100 modules only.

Ok, I have 2 CPUs of PIII 500, what is the maximum CPU speed i can upgrade to on the same motherboard?

regards

You can use PC133 memory on the board. Official top for this mobo is the PIII 600MHz 512kb, but you can also run the coppermines with a sloket set to 1.8v. Have to be the 100 MHz coppermines.

There is a 100MHz FSB for a Slot I PIII 1Ghz CPU.

It is slightly more expensive than the Flip Chip, however it will allow you to reach 1Ghz on your current machine.

Remember you need a 1Ghz Slot 1 CPU with the 100Mhz front side bus!

You can find one here for 210 dollars.

I doubt that the p2b will recognise the slot one 1 gig cpu because of voltage concerns; the Cc0 runs at 1.70 and the Cd0 at 1.75; it all depends upon which voltage regulator the board is running.

The normal p2b voltage regulator will only recognise cpu's which use 1.8v or higher.

That is why a slocket with regulatable voltage and a flipchip are the way to extend this board's usefullenss and shelf-life.

Look at the voltage regulator chip towards the rear of the board from the CPU, it is USUALLY a Harris chip (large "H" logo on it). If the part number ends in BCB, it's a violtage chip which will go down to 1.3 volt, anything else (just CB, for example) it's the 1.8 volt chip.

This will determine whether you can run a *slot one* 100Mhz cpu.

Many folks are running a Pentium III 850 FCPGA 100Mhz chip with slocket and voltage set to 1.8 on any of the P2b boards.

Before you go ahead and buy a 1gb slot one, check with this newsgroup:

alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus and ask if anyone has successfully set this up.

You can most definitely use a flip chip and a slocket. Right now I have a computer running a Cc0 celeron II 600 with a slocket at 1008Mhz. Not bad for a dead chipset (the BX).
