This is a tough one. Done all the usual. I've also phoned the headquaters, both line but know joy. I e-mailed them and if they dont respond, IF it's very important for you, I will go to the headquaters that are about 40 mins away from me.

Which 2.8 are we referring to? If it's a northwood, you should have no problems. If it's a prescott, and there is no mention of prescott compliance anywhere on the product page, in the manual, etc, then it probably will not work.

Usually, BIOS updates are required to ensure Celeron support. So, it should work fine w/ a Willamette or Northwood 2.8 (but probably not a Prescott).

Door locked, no sign of life i'm afraid and no reply to my e-mail. But I agree with No Affinity. I wouldnt try a presott not just the bios there's the heat issue to contend with.
