The board should take up to a 233 mhz, and I have one, this is all I have to use as a puter in my garage, and I need to wake it up, so can some one tell me in layman terms how to set my jumpers so I can use the 233 (or should I use the 200mhz pentium pro chip I have?) and explaine overclocking, this puter is just for ebay, boards like this no games or anything special, just need it to at least keep up with my poor and slow typing, My p3 seemed to quit on me and I could not get it to boot again for those that tried to help/ remember. Thanks Dino

It should write in your motherboard manual or the jumper setting are usualy printed on the motherboard itself.

Its not as simple as some of the other MB's I have seen, ( no diagram or anything on the case or board that I can see or read) the MB is a e139761, I have it maxed out at 128 ram, Id like to put in a 233, or 200 p pro not sure which is better, I have heard the 200 might be better, and figure out where the jumper settings need to be, where they are and an online schematic if possible. Can this be overclocked, and what are the steps?? I know its old but I am on a shoe sting right now.

Its a Pac Bell multimedia e153 edo ram, any help would surely be appreciated, from there maybe I can get my old puter back up to speed, but I need to read the boards in the meantime. Thanks for the help I know I will get. In summerery P pro 200 or mmx 233?
and help me make this a bit faster by overclocking. Thanks you.

Did you click the link on the bottom of the post?

Scroll down to CPU upgrades
the jumpers are all labeled in related to the diagram at the top

well I guess that answers another question, the 200 it is, dosent seem to support the 233, which contradicts other things I have read. do you concur?

That board comes from the Pentium 1 era, it will most likely not support MMX and the maximum these boards often supported is a 200Mhz processor.

This is for the simple reason that that board was revised at least six times, each one bearing new revisions and features from the previous revision, but it was considered obselete by Intel to support the newer (at the time) Pentium 233Mhz, and that processor introduced major changes that your board would never be able to support.

200Mhz processors go for literally next to nothing on eBay these days, considering how the entire systems as a whole used to go for 2 grand ten years ago.

Oh I know its an old pc of crap, but I just want it to read message boards and tech article for my car, its a garage unit, and its in my posession, the 233 mmx came out of a p1 pac bell as well, I only kept this one because I had gotten 128 ram, vs 64 in the other, plus the box fit better where i want it, I have a p3 that I will get back to trying to boot up, but this is what I have with my limited time, plus it gives me something to goof with thats all, im not real serious about this macine, just trying to sqeeze the last drops of life out of it.

Find a copy of Windows ME, this runs quite well on it for such an old machine. My board, a slightly earlier revision of the same model, runs ME and it runs a [bleep] sight better than 98SE ever did.

You can put an MMX CPU on your board. the Pentium MMX was just marketing
It has the same pin layout as the ordinary Pentium so you can plug it the board. maybe you will need BIOS update.go to http://www.cpuid.com/ download PCWizard and get the model and make of motherboard.

It's socket 7, its going to fit.

But if the board doesn't support the Front Side Bus speed needed to run it at 233Mhz, then you're going to be out of luck. IIRC my revision of that board only supports a 50, 60 and 66Mhz front side bus speed, which is where the 200Mhz limit comes in.
