I'll research and see what I find. I work on Dell's all the time, I might even have a 533mhz FSB processor and same computer in my basement.

The 533mhz FSB processor may work and turn on, but it will lower the clock speed. If you notice in THIS IMAGE that it shows the processors clock, but then it also shows directly after that what it's really running at. If you put a 533mhz in their (and it even turns on) the second speed will be a lower clock.
For example: On a 400mhz system you have a 2.6ghz processor with a 400mhz FSB, it will show as 2.6ghz. But on a 400mhz system with 2.6ghz processor with a FSB of 800mhz would show half that at 1.3ghz on the second clock listing. In that particular scenario, the system probably wouldn't even turn on, but just making an example.
