Picked up a 233MMX CPU I want to install in my Gigabyte GA-586HX rev. 1.53 based Pentium rig.
According to the compatibility list, revisions 1.50-1.54 does not support this CPU. However, since the 166MMX is supported, even the older revisions of the board should be able to supply the needed dual voltage. Since the list was written, several BIOS updates has been released, got 2.9 installed on my board now.
Just thought I should ask before doing anything stupid; is this perhaps just a question of the compatibility list not being updated to reflect changes in newer BIOS revisions? Has anyone here tried faster MMX chips in older revisions of the GA-586HX board?
