Thinkpad R50e: I have this IBM R50e (type 1834) and it supports only 400 MHz FSB Dothan
Hi! I have this IBM R50e (type 1834) and it supports only 400 MHz FSB Dothan Celeron/Pentium M CPUs. I would like to upgrade but currently I only have Dothan with 533 Mhz FSB (). It has pretty much the same specs as the supported ones (socket, even the voltages) except for the Bus speed. I was wondering if it could damage the board or will just work on the lower, 400 MHz FSB frequency which would run the CPU at 1,4 GHz (instead of stock 1,86). Anyone tried any 533 FSB CPUs? Thanks!
anyways yeah, I upgraded my R50e from a celeron to a P4, it works much better, I guess the timings are compatible.
it is now a R50.
