I have an Intel motherboard in my kids computer with a 400 celeron cpu. I would like to put the fastest cpu in it i can find that will work. The problem is i cannot find any info on this board to tell me how fast i can go. The part number on the board is (IUBP94712901 AA 753187-205). If anyone has any info. on this board i would appreciate it. Thanks

When you first turn the machine on, it should display a BIOS identification string.
It might flash by quickly, but it might help provide information as to who manufactures the mobo.

A Celeron 400 runs on a 66 mhz system bus. I'll assume that your board is designed to run at that speed. That is probably going to limit your options to another celeron or a p2 under 333 mhz (if you can find one)
What socket configuration is your processor ?
See support.intel.com/support/processors/procid/ptype.htm if you aren't sure.

An awful lot of boards on the market are "off" brands - they might have an Intel chipset, but not be supported by Intel.

If you can post back with the ID string, I can do some more research.

BP810 at http://www.directron.com/bp810.html PPGA Package only upto 500 MHZ. Because it is an OEM only motherboard Bios updates are only available through the System Manufacturer. If you need a manual for the board Intel does offer it in PDF format at http://developer.intel.com/design/motherbd/oem/

To date, I have setup over 400 of these boards since 1/2/2K, never sent any back so far. I use a BP810 here as a Freesco router and firewall.

My bios is BP81010A.86A.0009.P05 and is a PPGA. I appreciate the help anyone can give to speed this up.

500 MHZ max PPGA celeron is the best you will do. The motherboard already has the latest bios, sorry. How about more memory or is it full to 512 meg?

Whoops, Sorry 256 meg is max on this version with 1 DIMM.

I saw Intel makes a 566 MHZ PPGA celeron. This is the largest PPGA I saw. Is 500 the max or will this 566 work. I have 128 meg in it right now and i am going to put in a 256.This is my kids computer and works good for them , i am just trying to speed it up a little for them . thanks for the help.

I know the 500 works in it, not sure about above that. If 566 really is a PPGA it would be worth it to try. 166 MHZ should be a good bump up where 100 MHZ probably wouldn't even be noticed. The RAM upgrade will give the most notable performance boost.

533 MHZ works but it isn't worth the upgrade..Get more memory instead..and be careful with that..it has to be 16x8 industry standard CL2
