I looked up your motherboard and the highest it's rated for is a p2-450.
450 is the speed rating in mhz. Didnt they make p3-450 though?

I have a p3-500 that looks like the one in that picture, or had

Default Re:


I've been on a similar mission to yours before. Upgraded my bro's Pentium II 233Mhz to an Intel Celeron 466Mhz CPU, both 66Mhz bus...

I suggest you check out this Intel Motherboard Specification webpage: Intel RC440BX Motherboard Information . You'll find what processors it can support in the Compatibility section.

This old PIII processor has a Slot 1 connector. Same applies for the PII.

You can get these slotket converters that convert a Slot 1 interface to a PPGA or FC-PGA interface, allowing you to use Celeron processors. You can get ones to convert Slot 1 for Pentium III processors.
