  1. Hi everyone. I was wondering if any of you know if a FC-PGA2 CPU will work in a FC-PGA socket? I am wanting to upgrade from my current P3 600Mhz Coppermine CPU to a P3 1.13Ghz Tualatin CPU. Also does anyone know what the clock multiplier is of the Tualatin CPU. My motherboard only supports up to x8.0.

    Also what is the difference between the FC-PGA Socket and the FC-PGA2 Socket?

    I just found out that the P3 Tualatin 1.13Ghz has a clock multiplier of 8.5. My motherboard can only support up to 8.0. If i was to put the 1.13Ghz in anyway would it still work? Would it just be an underclocked 1.13Ghz?
