    2.2Ghz @ 400Mhz/bus should be the fastest you could go at this point. Your motherboard using a 100Mhz FSB but can overclock up to 166. In theory you may be able to use a 533Mhz/bus processor but I would check with ASUS to see if the BIOS would even support it. I might be time to save up and switch to a newer motherboard and CPU.

    Where did that 2.2GHz come from?

    According to ASUS this motherboard supports up to 2.6GHz/400MHz P4 and 2.8GHz/400MHz Celeron.
