Dual P3 Motherboard...

  1. I have two CPUs; my motherboard died for my server and I got another P3 for free. So, I was wondering, what motherboard could I get that would support them?

    P3 700Mhz / 100Mhz FSB / 1.7v
    P3 733Mhz / 133Mhz FSB / 1.65v

    I was thinking the Abit VP6; but it doesn't like different voltages. Anyone know of a good board that'd support this? I use SDRAM.

    It isn't just the motherboard really it is your chips. You can't just take two chips and plug them into a motherboard and think they will work. They have to be the same chip, same speed, same voltage, and has to have the same stepping. Even two chips that are indenitcal dont' alway have the same stepping value, but you have to have those other wise the processor will be working at differne rate and won't work together because they won't be in sync.
