Question guys i have a Asus P4533 mobo and it has a 845gl northbridge, and an IHC4 south bridge from an HP 505w. now the issue is the HP site says that the board only allows a 400MHZ FSB P4 or Celeron. The intel site says that is supports a 400Mhz fsb cpu, but the ASUS website says that the P4533 mobo supports up to a 533fsb cpu, and that they have verified it. I want to upgrade but if the 533mhz is going to damage it i dont want to do it.Its a 478 Socket Mobo by the way Thx

Antec 350watt PSU
768mb ram PC2700
Celeron 400mhz 2.20 GHZ
PNY FX 5500 128MB
Soundblaster Live 5.1
P4533 ASUS mobo

And yes I do own in Joint Ops with this System lol

you cant damage the motherboard/cpu by putting a more powerful processor in it, the motherboard will only just recognize 533 or whatever it is limited to. As long as its the right socket itll be fine.

Asus makes mobo's for HP according to their specs. There may be differences between the HP model and the regular model.

That being said, there's not much of a chance of hurting anything if you try. But, don't be surprised if it doesn't work either!

If it was me, I'd give it a try and find out! :thumbsup:
