I have this Cicero D620s with P4-1.6 Ghz pckage type FC-PGA2 .
NOw I found the same package, but 2.4 Ghz.
Price is tempting me to upgrade. BUT...the P4-1.6 has bus speed 400
while the 2.4 has 533 Mhz bus speed...
PLease advise since seller will not return or exchange once I buy the
Many thanks in advance.

Re: Upgrade processor P4 1.6 to 2.4 but BUs speed differs
The increase in speed is probably hardly worth it, even if you motherboard
supports the higher bus speed. The most important issue is whether the
processor cooling system can cope with the extra heat. You may well get a
better spedd increase by simply doubling the RAM size.
