HERES A QUICK QUESTION FOR ANY BUDDING HARDWARE GURU OUTHERE!
MY CURRENT HARDWARE SPEC IS:
Cognac Micro ATX (ATX V1.2 form factor) motherboard, TriGem,
Korea Intel Socket-370 (370pin PPGA Socket) for Intel FC-PGA Celeron CPU 800MHz. Integrating on-chip Graphics controller
and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH): Intel FW82810,
as well as Intel I/O Controller Hub (ICH) and AC 97' Controller: I
ntel FW82801 onto the motherboard eliminates the need for more expensive graphic and audio
I WANT TO UPGARDE THE CPU TO A FASTER CELERON WITH A SOCKET 370...DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE MAX SPEED OF CPU IS THAT THIS PARTICULAR MOTHERBOARD WILL TAKE?

what's the model and make pc? this is an emachine, right?
http://www.e4all.info/ is a emachine help site (unofficial)
http://www.trigem-usa.com/system/systeminfo.asp is the search page for your serial number/model number. i need more info if i am to pin it down further.

yeah its an e-machine c733combi that i have...ive just taken the tin off to have a look at the mother board inside...on the edge of the mobo is a written COGNAC 20000731 is this the serial number?

well, according to the first site i posted, and it's sort of iffy, i couldn't get the exact number, but it may be able to take a 1.1ghz cpu if it's a cognac+ motherboard at the minimum, as far as if it'll take more, i'd just call trigem usa and ask. or else you can use the links at http://www.e4all.info and use their forums to ask your question. the manual i found only lists up to a 500mhz, but i think you have a newer model.

WOW thanks... yeah ive been diggin on the net this weekend and i rekon the fastest my mobo may support is a celeron 1.10GHz according to a few sites ive visted.
May be aswell just buying one and dropping it in.. there only about £40...aint nothing to loose
