Bij Overclcokers' Workbench staat wat info over de PowerLeap PL-S370, een converter waarmee je Pentium III Coppermines of Cyrix Joshua CPU's op je Celeron Socket 370 plank (zoals je BP6) kan prikken. Hieronder wat meer info, thanks ToMaSZ voor de tip.
Looks like socket370 users like BP6 are in luck. Powerleap is releasing a converter for everyone of us.
The PowerLeap PL-S370 is a cost-effective FC-PGA to PPGA converter that allows you to install an Intel Pentium III "Coppermine" or Cyrix (VIA) "Joshua" CPU (in the FC-PGA package) into a Socket 370 computer designed for an Intel Celeron CPU.
Although the FC-PGA and Celeron CPUs are designed for Socket 370, there are differences in the pin definitions and voltage requirements for these CPUs. For this reason, an FC-PGA CPU will not run when directly inserted in the processor socket of a motherboard designed for the Celeron. The PL-S370 adapts the pin signals of FC-PGA CPUs so that they can run on motherboards with the PPGA form factor.
- Supports the Intel Pentium III (100/133MHz) and Cyrix (VIA) "Joshua" (when available) CPUs in the FC-PGA package. (Note: In order to use the Pentium III at 100MHz or 133MHz, your motherboard must support the 100MHz or 133MHz frontside bus, respectively.)
- Allows drop-in CPU replacement, with no software drivers to install.
- Compatible with the PowerLeap PL-PII and other SSAs (Slot-to-Socket Adapter).
