I recently ordered the Slot-T adapter for use on a Dell XPS B733R. I realize I am taking on the risk of changing my processor but I've done it before with another machine and had good luck (that was an easy p4 swap).

Originally the PC ran 733 Mhz PIII at 133 FSB and 1.65V. As you probably know, The Slot T adapter allows both voltage adjustment and FSB adjustment...

***I've installed the Celeron 1.3 Ghz chip and tried running it at 133 mhz and 1.65V and 100 Mhz and 1.50V and the PC will not start under either setting. I retained the original fan on the back of the machine and since the Celeron 1.3 Ghz did not come with a heat sink and fan (bare bones kit), I used a P4 large heat sink and fan attached by plastic tie wraps with some thermal paste in between...

Also I attempted to run CPU w/o heat sink & fan when I first started...any chance chip is fried for good?

I reverted back to old chip and runs fine...

If you have any advice, I would much appreciate it.
