I've got a new to me Tualatin PIII-s 1400/512/133/1.45 on the way and I have a few questions.
My motherboard docs state that it can handle the new processor but I also know that my current Coppermine CPU runs off 1.7 volts, and the Tualatin runs off 1.45 volts.
I see no jumpers on the board to change voltage, so how does that work?
Also, there are jumpers for "CPU Multiplier" on the board, but the funny thing is they are all empty but the processor is currently running correctly at a x7.5 multiplier in CPUz. (Maybe no jumpers is "Auto" or even more likely the multiplier is "locked" via the CPU?)
The PDF manual hasn't been much help...
So basically, How do I make the change with voltage and multiplier without destroying everything?
Also, Can I use the same heat sink and fan that is currently sitting on my current Coppermine processor? (I'm assuming yes...)
