Well, P4 2.4Ghz (400, not 533) will do fine. With that chip, you can be sure that it would work. Also those new 533 chips will also do, but your RDRAM would be limiting factor, because normally with TH7-II the fsb is 100 and with those new chips its 133. That woudl mean that you should overclock a bit your Rdramms.

We have had good luck with all the chips. I don't know about the 3.06 gig yet. I would go with whatever your pocket book will allow. Changes that will take a few minutes in the bios will allow you to run the 133 mhz chips 2.26 and up.

hello logger anf frankie

so youre both saying that i can run the 533mhz chips flawlessly with just a bios change? i was wanting to upgrade to 2.4ghz [533fsb], will this work flawlessly on the th7II?

thanks!
