There have been a few topics on the CUBX-E and similar mainboards, but I am wondering if anyone has been running a 1.1GHz (100MHz FSB) Pentium III on an ASUS CUBX-E for an extended period of time.
Currently, I have a system with the ASUS CUBX-E, Pentium III 850MHz and my Voodoo 5 5500 AGP. Tonight I went through my stash of Socket 370 CPUs and among them were a couple of SL5QW Pentium III 1.1GHZ processors. As much as I'd like to upgrade my system with one of those CPUs, it will likely put more strain on the mainboard. The TDP of these processors is rated at 33W, where the 850MHz only has a TDP of 22.5W. I am using a decent CPU cooler (Alpha PAL6035).
So I would like to know if I may expect adverse effects of running this higher spec CPU on my mainboard in the medium to long term. Is there anyone who can share their experience with a similar setup?
