I have a hp d220 w/socket478. I had a celeron 2.4ghz and replaced it with a p4 2.8/512/800. Unfortunately the bus speed for that chip is 200mhz instead of 100 so the frequency only ran at 1.4ghz do to the 200mhz bus speed being cut in half leaving only 100mhz x 14 for the multiplier. I did the break off pin mod and it brought the FSB speed to 533 the bus speed to 133 giving me a frequency of 1.9ghz and also brought my ram bus speed up from 266mhz to 333mhz which is what it is made to run since I have PC2700 333. I applied the voltage increase to 1.75v with the wire pin mod then increased the fsb with SetFSB which increased my CPU to 2.107ghz. Now I must ask is there a VID pin mod to increase the multiplier? Fingers are crossed.
Does the mother board support 800mHz CPU's? Better yet what are the system specs??

Hp d220mt
liteon 0888h mobo
533 max fsb
p4/celeron mpga478 FC-pga2 package
max cpu speed on mobo (manufacturer claim) 3.06ghz ( ive got my celeron 2.4/128/400 running at 3471mhz hence breaking off one of the pins)
The deal is my p4 2.8/512/800 CPU has a fsb of 800mhz hence 200mhz bus speed. my board will only go to 533 hence 133 bus speed. Because of the bus speed and my multiplier being 14 I only get 1.4ghz instead of the 2.8. So when I broke off the pin it changed the FSB speed to 533 hence 133 bus speed giving me 1.8 ghz. 133 X 14Multi = 1862 So Im hoping there is a way to connect or modify the PGA to change the multiplier to at least 21 via the pins on the cpu or on the mobo.
