    With 533 MHz FSB P4s you mean.

    And yes.

    800 FSB CPU can run only @ 533 on 533 mhz mobo's.
    You can fit them in, but you won't get the performance.

    I understand that ...right now I have the slowest 533Mhz FSB P4 but I'm
    itching to increase to 3 Ghz and not ready for new mobo just yet. So when I
    get a new 800FSB mobo in the future I can swap processors without buying a
    new one. Anyway thanks for the info.
