The powerleap socket 370 upgrades for the ppro I believe were for use
with Celeron chips.... and I believe only one adapter was supported
in a dual socket 8 mobo (whether that was because celeron was not MP
or for other reasons).
What is your thought... underdrive 100mhz FSB PIII procs... and even
then... I think the P3 is limited to 2 processor configs....
If prior talk on this thread is correct, fastest config for quad proc
for that would be 4x333 overdrives.... and if the overdrives wouldn't
actually go 4 way... then 4x200mhz overclocked to 233 (not by FSB, by
multiplier jumpers), with 1M cache each....
