I am almost positive it's a slot 1, slot 1 goes up to 1ghz, or you can get a socket370-slot one converter and put a 1.4ghz tuteetin which is a very nice cpu since it is very simalar to amd in that it does 9 ops per second.

Yeah, but first you may want to check you mobo for what it can acually take like what is it's max fps and multi, otherwise you may be limited to somthing along the lines of a pIII 750mhz or somthing.

It is quite possible that I misspelled tuteetin, but it is the core name, they were the last pIII's made because they were more powerfull than the p4s of the time and cheaper.

EDIT: Here is how you spell it Tualatin.

On a P3 mobo, the best way to check the limits is to look at the CPU options in the BIOS. That way, you can find the max FSB as well as the highest multiplier it can support. I have five or six P3 mobos here, and each one has a different max. It's very unlikely that a board that's running a 450 will support a Tualatin. The voltage requirements for that core are different from the Coppermines and earlier CPUs. If the CPU is square, it's likely a S370, and a slot type CPU is a Slot 1. CPU-Z will tell you either way.
