wonder if that will take the chips with the 1M of cache...

I have a dual ppro mobo (Intel V440FX if I recall model # correctly)
and despite not being 'rated' for use with the 1M chips... it seems
to run them fine.  It also works with ppro overdrives.  I never got
around to setting up in either config though :-(... I keep saying..
somday :-)

also have a dual ppro Micronics board... but that won't run the
overdrive cpus...  never tried the 1M cache ppros...
