Question P4 2.4 Northwood and Mobo

I am looking at a P4, 2.4 Northwood, 533, 512k at Newegg. I could not determine which chipset it had. Would like to know that, along with a good mobo for it, and best RAM. Thanks

Chipset is something you find on a motherboard, not on a CPU. I'm not sure which mobo you should pick atm tho.

P4, chipset, and mobo

I didn't exactly phrase my question properly. I was trying to find the compatability of the chipsets, hence mobo's with the 2.4 Northwood P4, and what others had found to be a good mobo for this processor. Sorry for the confusion.

You can use:
SIS845
SIS648
I845
I850
etc
They have their variations.

If it was me I would look to Asus, Epox or MSI for a P4 motherboard. Maybe Abit as well, but I'm not sure about them anymore.

I would select either the venerable 850E or the new 845PE. Both are designed to run at 133FSB. The 850E runs on RDRam and the 845PE runs on DDRSDRAM. Your best bet is to get a 2.0a and run it at 133FSB. With good cooling, 2.66Ghz should be attainable.

EDIT: I would personally get a 850E chipset board. You need to OC the FSB pretty high (around 170-180Mhz) in order for DDR to have enough memory bandwidth to keep a P4 fed.

Or how about a 2.53 that will hit the sweet 3 gigs?

Yes, that is right, for memory bandwidth you would want the i850E, but those boards are very poor overclockers. Plus, not everything depends on memory bandwidth, and sometimes it is the MHz that make the difference, so a better OCing board is nicer.

Epox 4GEA+ is a kick ass board, probably the best P4 DDR board going atm.

it should be avalable very soon (depending on your location)

It may be so, but I still think the 4PEA+ is better
At least for me, because I hate integrated graphics.
