My board came with a 700 MHz P3 (so it's definitely compatible with Coppermine) and there are numerous reports from people running this board with a 1GHz chip. Here's just one example.
Problem is that starting with 800 MHz, Intel went from 100 MHz FSB to 133 MHz (800 MHz P3 was available in both versions). BX isn't meant for FSB >100 MHz, even if some mainboards allow overclocking. So if you want 1 GHz, you need to install a 1.33 GHz one, as you need a CPU with a 10x multiplier.
