At the beginning of March I started this thread:-
I have two BXM829D (Slot 1) boards both with 2.0v Pentiums on, there are no

and a search on "Pentium 3 Katmai" found this:
all this coincided with the disappearance of 600MHz/2.0v parts from Ebay.
I think I will try and find a cheap 1.7v part.
This case is closed! I think
