    Has anyone put a 2600+ CPU in an 8KHA+? I noticed that the list of
    supported CPUs for my rev of the board includes the 2600+. However, it
    also says that the supported 2600+ CPU is 133/266 FSB. The only 2600+
    CPUs that I can find for sale are 166/333 models.

    If I just drop one of these in my board, will I be able to run it with
    the FSB set at 166Mhz?

  2. Hi, they made XP 2600+ in both 266FSB and 333FSB, but retail box is only
    333FSB. Check www.pricewatch.com for it, otherwise get a 2400+ they are
    all 266FSB

    You should be able to use it without a problem.
    It will just throttle it down to the lower speed.

    Yep, I did. This was a brand new XP 2600+ (Thoroughbred, FSB 133).
    After turning on the power, nothing happened. The screen stayed black
    and nothing more happened.

    Changing the CPU back to the old 1400 C Athlon, all went fine.
    Rev. 2.0, latest BIOS.
