    Possible the probability varies by region? Considerably less than 50% of
    the 1.10 P2Bs I've seen (Ontario, Canada) had BCB regulators.

    AFAIK the lowest voltage Intel specified for a Coppermine is 1.6v.
    Tualatins are all specified at 1.5v according to
    processorfinder.intel.com, but IME Celerons are labelled 1.475v and
    PIII-S are labelled 1.45v. I'm not sure why Intel specified them that
    high as all mine are stable at 1.4v except for one 1Ghz Celeron which
    needs 1.5v to run at 1.5Ghz.

    Some people *do* seem to get away with running a Tualatin at 1.8v, but I
    certainly wouldn't recommend it.

  3. That's interesting, because out of several dozen P2B's I have NEVER seen
    a 1.10 P2B that did NOT have the BCB regulator.

    I'm off to check mine since I'm in the upgrade process. What do I
    look for to verify which regulator I have ?
