Is there a way to make the Core Voltage of i440BX's work with Tual?

(Tual)atins. For folks that are soldering iron challenged?
Prolly a dumb question. Apologies if it is.

Its possible to mod the socket of a BX board to make it "support" the tualatin. However, I don't think it will give you the correct tualatin core voltage.. You will have to run it over-volted, AFAIK.

Not a biggie for some, as they were intending to overclock the tualatin in the first place and were possibly going to raise the core voltage anyway.

The core should be able to handle the extra voltage though... depending on how long you want it to live!

I think this thread covers what you're asking.

You'll probably have to find someone with soldering skills, or use liquid solder...

Oowie, 2.0 v would be a heck of a lot of joltage for a Tualeron. Never heard of liquid solder. Whatever, I'm not getting solder in liquid or rosin core form anywhere near my sole surviving 440BX mainboard.

Wish I'd given the CUBX-E to my younger brother. I've seen a $299.00 price quoted for a brand new P3B-F. His is used, of course. Oh well, I had to get rid of those SEC 64 Mb PC-133 sticks. The CUBX is picky about RAM. Not so the P3B-F.

Thank you for the info, guys!
