AX6BC Pro Gold and Tualatin: Is this safe?

    I bought one of these motherboards because my MS-6163 Pro died. Long story
    short, I plugged everything in and nothing happens. So I'm going to try a
    new CPU and I'm thinking a Tualatin with a Slot-T would be a good upgrade.
    The problem is I've read some posts on Google Groups about the voltage
    regulators overheating. Is this a problem? Would it be safer to go with
    the Celeron 1.2ghz instead of the 1.3ghz so they'rd be less current going
    through the regulators? I don't want to kill the board prematurely. It's a
    lot 17 which is approved for Coppermine if that helps any.

    Also, does anyone know what the lowest version of the bios I can have and
    still get it to start is? I have no idea what version's on there right now
    but I have to assume the worst and say it's probably R1.07 since that's what
    the sticker on the bios chip says.

    I agree also, the slot-t with a tualtin 1.4 celeron. Great, add a
    promise ultra ata 133 or 100 controller and a new HD, great machine,
    for another few years.
