4pea+ and 800Mhz FSB

Is there any way to get a P4 2.8c to work in this board? I have read that it will allow OCing up to an 200MHz FSB but will it support a cpu with a native 800MHz fsb? Please help. Thanks.

NO. Your board will only take proccessors upto 533 FSB. If you put the P4 2.8Ghz FSB800 in you'll toast it.

Either buy the Epox 4GAE800I @ www.epox.org/ which supports 800Mhz FSB P4 chips or Buy A P4 with FSB 533.

Anyone else? Its not my board. It was a question raised in an AnandTech forums thread. Figured I would come here for an Epox tech.

ARE YOU SURE?

Look Asshat there is no need to get upset. I don't know how things are done on that side of the lake but I don't put a lot of stock in a reply from somebody with 25 post that porvides me with no reasoning or credentials to give me reason to take his word as the gospel. As I said this isn't my board and I (like you) don't think it can be done. I linked to the thread where the question was raised and was simply looking for a consensus of more than one. I have seen many question answered wrongly before. As a matter of fact I,ve browsed the threads on this board and found a lot of misinformation.

Specifications for both 4PEA & 4PEA/+
• For Pentium® 4 processors Socket 478 supports 533 MHz FSB

P4 2.8 Ghz 800FSB will not work in this board, this is becuase the multiplier is locked.

I have the EPOX 4GEA800I mobo, the multiplier on this board is unlock making it available to be overclocked for the P4 series with 800Mhz FSB.

Mastertech01 as an EPOX 4PEA/+. This board will only accept 533Mhz FSB P4 Proccessors because the Multiplier is locked.

Why do i know this, been there, done that, got the NOT WORKING NOW P4 2.8ghz FSB800mhz.
