If it's an Intel-branded motherboard, it's next to impossible to overclock unless there are jumpers on the board which allow you to overclock or if programs like Softfsb will allow you to overclock in Windows.

No, all Pentium II's came in the Slot 1 form factor, as well as a few Celerons. The only processors to use the PPGA format were Celerons up to 533MHz.

SoftFSB can be found at aoafiles.com under "Utilities" and then "Motherboard and CPU Tweak Files". Hope this helps.

Ofcourse.

Search for: slockets / slotkets / slot1 convertors / (more?..)


Two main choices:
PPGA and FCPGA.


To be prepared for future upgrades a convertors that allows for both ppga and fcpga (by means of a jumper or switch) is best I think.

Also keep in mind that a slot1 P2-300 (Klamath core) has 2.8Volts vcore.
The C533 needs 2.0Volt.

Make sure the C533 doesn't get 2.8Volt.
