With all due respect to dai's link, according to page 14 in the P2B manual(<link is for the .pdf from the ASUS download site) the jumpers on the board should be configureable to 700mhz and beyond. Particularly if you have the latest BIOS version(I see you do). Try it and see and let us know...someone please correct me if I am wrong

Hi Dai/Please,
Well, that's the problem. I'm being offered this cpu by a chap in England; (I live in Canada) and I don't know whether to pursue it or not. The manual does say Pentium III, although the highest it cites is 550mhz.

check what your last bios update covered,if it added support for faster cpu's,the postage would be worth more than the cpu carn't you obtain one locally

Hi Dai,
I'm not sure how to check what the upgrade permitted me. I do know that my POST says, "PIII" 504mhz, whereas, before the upgrade it said, "PII" 504mhz. Do you think I can interpret this as support for "all" PIIIs?
I wasn't really looking for a faster cpu, but this guy on the forum I frequent offered it. I'm not sure at this point what he wants for it. If the postage/his cost combo is too high I won't bother upgrading at all. It's just one of those things the comes along

Hi Dai,
Thanks again for the references. The first two, although very interesting, don't really apply to the native P2B board. What I would like to do with this board, if possible, is to increase the vcore voltage a point or two. I have a Katmai PIII 450 in it right now, clocked at 112mhz (ie 504) and can't get it to fly at 133. I'm told that if I could increase the voltage I might get the necessary stability at 133; but nowhere have I been able to discover how to do this, short of covering processor contacts, which seems to be a very risky business.

Hi Dai,
Thanks again for the references. It's running right now at 112mhz. The board is jumpered for 133, so I'm assuming it will do it, perhaps with a slight voltage increase. It may also be that the Katmai just won't do 133, under any circumstances.
