Re: Celeron FSB 533 + mainboard FSB 400
You can get a list of ECS socket 478 motherboard names from here.
One thing to watch for, is if the Celeron is a "Celeron D".
They are 90nm processors, from the same era as Prescott.
When plugged into a motherboard that is not compatible with
them, the computer will not POST. But the Celeron D processor
will not be damaged. For an older S478 motherboard that
is not listed as "Prescott Ready", you must find an ordinary
Celeron processor, and not a Celeron D.
If I look in the "Celeron D" section here, a 2.13GHz FSB533
looks to be a member of that section.
Before buying a Celeron D, it would pay to check the CPU
compatibility chart for your motherboard, whichever one it
is. My suspicion would be your ECS board is too old to
support it, but check any information ECS offers first,
to know for sure.
The FSB400 Celerons might be a bit harder to find. They are
0.13u and are more likely to work in a S478 motherboard.
There are some examples of ones that should work in
your board here. The ones at the top of the page look
to be OEM, and do not come with a heatsink/fan.
