Which frequency of processor for QDI motherboard BrillianX-1S with BIOS 4.51 PG

I need your help. We have QDI motherboard BrillianX-1S with BIOS 4.51 PG and processor Intel Celeron 433MHz (socket 370). We would like to change the processor for the most efficient one which is possible to use with this motherboard.
I have found that this motherboard manage to work only with PIII 600MHz (max.). Is it true? Or does it manage to work with more powerful processors like PIII 850MHz of PIII 1000MHz?
If yes, must it be only 100MHz (bus frequency) or can it be also 133MHz? Does it matter? I think that the MB supports only 66/100Mhz frequency.

Thank you for your help.

    Thank you for your answer but it wasn´t exactly what I needed.
    I need to know wheter PIII 600MHz is the top for this motherboard (I read it on or whether this QDI motherboard (BrillianX-1S with BIOS 4.51 PG) will work also with PIII 850MHz or PIII 1000MHz.
    This is what I exactly need to know.

    I´m sorry but I tried a PIII 800Mhz processor several minutes ago and it didn´t work (I´m glad that didn´t have to pay for it). So I don´t think that this MB works with PIII processors.
    But thank you for your time.

Hey there.

If you are planning to upgrade the processor with the latest one then it is not possible without upgrading your motherboard.

Because as per all the bus and system configuration requirement with ur CPU you must give the recommended bus speed, bus lines, Address lines, Ram supportive slot, and RAM Frequency.

Your motherboard must suuport all those requirement if you are upgrading ur Processor.

You are right that ur motherboard can only work with PIII CPU.

Upgrade ur motherboard with atleast of 845,945G Chipset to support up to core2 Duo Processor in Intel. OR with A8V-VM and above in Asus Motherboard.

(Gimme your acknowledge by rating me)

Wrong processor speed in bios!

Good morning. (It's 4:40am here)

kostas, I would like you to download the motherboard manual, for the QDI Advance 10 motherboard. This way I can show you, as well as tell you, how to change the CPU setting in your BIOS Setup. (CMOS Setup Utility)

This is the download page for the PDF file. (PDF Motherboard Manual),
Scroll down, and observe the headings in the left column. When you get to -> <- , put your mouse cursor on it. It will turn red. Now Left-click one time.

This is a Zip file. A small window will come up. Click the empty circle to the left of -> Save. Now go below and click on Save.
If you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), this will be saved to your desktop screen.
It will be a yellow folder icon, with underneath it. Double-click on it to open it. You will see four PDF files. You want the first one. -> 01A10.PDF
Double-click on this file.

As soon as you press the Power On button, start tapping the Delete key in 2 second intervals. You will probably get a Stuck Key Error beep, a few times. Don't sweat it.

You should now be in BIOS Setup.
Look at the main menu. See -> SpeedEasy CPU Setup?
Use the Page Down key, and highlight it. (It may be the + or - key. They show both in the navigation guide at the bottom. You'll know very quickly) Now press the Enter key. You should now be in the submenu, Speed Easy CPU Setup.
The Intel Pentium III that has a frequency rate of 866MHz, is a Coppermine core architecture.
It has an FSB of 133MHz, and a multiplier of 6.5

Use the Page Down key, and highlight CPU Speed. Now press the Enter key. Use the appropriate key and highlight the frequency rate you need. (Page Up or Page Down key, or side arrow key, or + or - key)
864 MHz. That's a Host Bus Speed of 133MHz, and a Clock Multiplier of 6.5
You won't get 866MHz, don't sweat it! (It's really 864.5 MHz)
Once this is highlighted, press the Enter key.
Now press the F10 key to save the changes you made.

You will see either a YES or NO, or a Y or N.
If it's YES or NO, use the side arrow key, and highlight YES. Then press the Enter key. (Yes you are sure)
If it shows the Y or N, press the y key, (Small case, not a capital Y), then press the Enter key.

(Be sure that you have the jumpers on the motherboard, set to a Host Bus Speed of 133MHz. Look in 02A10.PDF and on Page 11 for more info on how to set these two jumpers)

Overclocking a CPU Type Intel Pentium IIIE, 581 MHz

If you have an adjustment for the VCORE voltage in your bios, bring it up by one value, then try overclocking the CPU.
