Unhappy Not sure if this should go here:

ok, i have been looking at the main "family" computer, and it is a:

Microstar 6156 Ver1.0BXZ mobo.

It seems it has 2 slot-1 ports. i can only find 1 port for a standard case/processor fan power supply.

i have been unable to find much information on this at this time, about the highest processor it can handle etc...

anyone have any first hand knowledge about these?

it currently has a PIII 450 mhz

i think its just a 100mhz bus.

any info appreciated.

on another note got my celery 433 i can overclock it via fsb only "atm" to 468 but since i got no fan for the heatsink it is
much-o hot-o

It can take a PIII 1Ghz coppermine. no mention about the 2nd cpu slot.

Get yourself a slocket and shove a coppermine 1gig in it..

Although I think a duron and a KT133A based mobo will be about the same price and much faster.

must be my imagination :/

theres 1 smack bang in the middle (well a bit below to the right of the agp) and at the very top middle, looks like another one and its horizontal.

probably just a nice looking hole to get my hopes up

Unfortnately thats an ISA slot at the top picco, the only use for that is for an aincient soundcard or modem.

These youngsters who dont know what an ISA slot is, even making me feel old
