Default PC Partner BXM829D mobo

I have two BXM829D boards both with 2.0V Pentiums on, there

are no jumpers and only the FSB is available through the

BIOS. Will I be able to use the later 1.65/1.7/1.8v models on

this board ?

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
jumpers and only the FSB is available through the BIOS. Will I be able to use
the later 1.65/1.7/1.8v models on this board ?

while I waited for a reply to my email to PC Partner. I got a prompt reply as
follows

"The BXA829D is only available for the Slot 1 type CPU, which is 100MHz FSB
with 512K level 2 cache. The CPU speed is up to Pentium III 600 (100MHz
FSB,512K L2). The high speed processors are inapplicable."

After rereading the manual I came across this part:-

VRM (Voltage Regulator Modules) on Board
• Flexible motherboard design with on-board VRM 8.2, easy to upgrade
with Intel’s® Future Overdrive® processors.

So I searched for "VRM 8.2" and found the following:-

http://support.intel.com/support/pro.../CS-007612.htm
http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardw...pict97744.html

and a search on "Pentium 3 Katmai" found this:

http://www.geek.com/procspec/intel/pentium3consumer.htm

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
