    Yeah sure. As long as your BIOS allows you to change the settings and you have some good cooling.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    Yeah. My compaq (this one) has a completely stripped BIOS. Can't do squat to it.

    With the right motherboard you may get it to 1100MHz but there's no guarantee there as anything from about there on will start causing errors no matter what you do as the manufacturing process could not handle the higher frequencies. ;)

    Sorry but the P4 will in no way fit that board but check to see if your motherboard will support a "Tualatin" core PIII as these can be found up to 1.4GHz (I couldn't find any reference to a "intel eastman 815e" so have a look for a model number on it).
