Thought I would toss this out since I got the suggestion from the
group. A few weeks ago I posted here looking for a faster slot 1 CPU.
It was suggested here to look at a slocket and 370 pin chip instead. I
did some newsgroup research and ended up purchasing a Slot-T adapter
and a retail Celeron 1.4. I installed it last night, and while my PC
booted up, the CPU was listed as a PII 1200. At the suggestion of the
vendor that sold me the Slot-T, I ran Sandra which has a CPU analysis
tool. I just did that and it reported that my CPU is a Celeron 1.4
running at 1.4 GHz. Not a bad deal. I went from a PII 400 to a PIII
Celeron 1.4 for ~$90.00 including shipping. Here is the link for the
Slot-T if anyone is interested.
BTW, to the best of my knowledge there are only two adapters that will
let you put in a Tulatain core CPU. One is the Slot-T I used and the
other is from Powerleap. I guess the Powerleap model is considered
very good, but it is also ~$100.
