|I've got an old Vectra VE P-III that's probably about the same as your VEI. Can't remember where I got it, but it had XP running OK on it so I just updated the hardware as much as I could. |
I just ran Everest to see what I put in it. It's got a 1.1 gig coppermine CPU in it at 11 x 100 and I think that's the fastest cpu I could get to work in it. I remember that particular cpu had a 100 mhz FSB. I'm pretty sure I tried some 133 FSB cpus and the only reason I wouldn't have used one is the mobo couldn't do 133. And as I recall, the 810 chipset is locked at 100 mhz. Everest also reported it's an Asus Hawk motherboard.
Some of the old P-III motherboards couldn't handle the new architecture and/or core voltages of the faster P-IIIs. Often a bios upgrade would add that support. So check the PC manual and HP's support page for that model.
And you should probably try to find a cpu with a 100 mhz FSB. They're cheap enough on ebay.
