    Hi all

    I have bought a new P4 2.8Ghz CPU to upgrade my MX46-533V mobo.

    On the aopen homepage it is listet as has been passed on thios mobo but
    the cpu wont work on this mobo I have triede allmost everything - reset
    bios - unplugged everything to see if i had enough power but this CPU
    stays ice cold - and unoperational - the only thing I havn't tried is to
    get another memory module the one im using now is a 400MHZ FSB
    card - my question is does the P4 which has a 533FSB requires a
    533MHZ FSB memory module to operate.

    All taken into consideration the CPU should work with the memory I
    have for the moment if it makes 7*400=2.8Ghz but I have not been
    able to find any information on whether the CPU FSB and the Memory FSB
    should correspond to each other.

    Any Ideas ?

    If the mainbord is not wired to the case you need to short the mainboard
    power switch jumper to boot the system.

    If it does for a fraction of time or your cpu stays ice cold, the power
    supply may lack power to supply board, cpu and dimm. Get a bigger one.
