  1. Pentium 4 1.6ghz
    pc-chips m963gv 533fsb
    1 x 10gb HDD
    1x 80gb HDD
    256mb Ram
    ATI Radeon 9550 256mb

    Hey there, i've just installed a pentium 4 1.6ghz in the motherboard above even though it is not on the CPU compatibility list (only just).

    I am thinking about buying a p4 3.0ghz (533fsb) prescott and trying it but this is also not on the CPU compatibility list.

    The thing is there IS a 3.06 HT on the list so i was wondering wether a 3.0ghz would be acceptable.

    Here is the list
