BIOS won't do it. Thanks though for the comment, made me do some research on the subject!
Anyways, this is what I need to max out my P4 machine:
Intel Pentium 4 2.6 GHz socket 478 CPU SL6PP 512/400 Northwood, part numbers:
BX80532PC2600D boxed microprocessor
There is one that is a 400FSB 2.8Mhz, RK80546PG1041M But I've done numerous Bing searches and can't find any.
Also, that 2.6GHz, the prices are all over the place! E-Bay has one for $15.50 and then there are places that want $139! Is it possible that somebody would pay a hundred forty dollars for an old P4?
Anyways, if anybody can find me this CPU, on the cheap, I would be very delighted! So would my P4!
Looks like the P4 is going back to stock, 1.6. I may just put it off for a while though, rough night sleeping.
P.S. I had a phone interview this morning to be an Apple tech phone center/at home call answer-er. They would send me a new Apple comp to use for the job and I would field calls from customers with iPhones and iPads that need help. Just a first step but, I'm a little excited. Training starts in July at 9.15 an hour, so at least I'll get paid for something!
