The dummy voltage reg is just to complete the power loop, (as there is built in diags in the box) without the dummy the box will log errors against the empty volt reg slot. YES you do need the Voltage regulator for the 2nd slot if you intend to install a processor there.

This machine was running a 1.2 processor which I now know is the fastest processor the mobo will support. However, and before I knew this, I placed a 1.53 processor (AX1800DMT3C) in the slot and the bios...


The original CPU was 1200 Mhz, namely 12 times the 100 Mhz "clocking" supplied by the motherboard.
The new CPU is 1.53 Mhz, namely 11.5 times a 133 Mhz clocking, if the motherboard can supply that rate of clocking.

If your motherboard can only supply 100 Mhz clocking,
then the new CPU would run at 1150 Mhz (namely its 11.5 multiplier over the 100 Mhz clocking), i.e., slower than the original CPU.

Can you try the 1.2 processor in some other motherboard?
It's possible that you "killed" it, when you removed it,
or after you removed it, by giving it a static-electricity burst.

Do you have another processor that you can try in your motherboard?

What happens if you put the 1.53 processor into the motherboard?
Does it POST (Power On Self Test) ?

How do I overclock a Celeron 733mHz PGA370?


You can only overclock your computer if it has ATAPI BIOS. So get into BIOS upon bootup and if you have ATAPI then it will say it across the top. It will also have a section for the CPU with the current speed and an option to change it.

U have to find the motherbord's manual !!!! U will find there all u need. But most probably u won;t be able to put those processors (the speed diferences are too big, even if they are of the same slot type)

PROCESSOR


Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)

Asus P3V4X/S370-133/Tualatin 1.2Ghz


It turns out that while the BIOS will not appear to recognize the Pentium 3 1.4GHz Tualatin CPU (SL6BY) in my Asus P3V4X motherboard, Windows XP does! I apologize for my delay in posting this.

8d74c81.jpg
I have five extra SL6BY processors that I'd like to sell if anyone is interested. I need to make some money to upgrade the memory in this antique to 2GB (turns out that low density 512MB RAM does work in the P3V4X, by the way).

Thanks,
Eric
