I want to buy a motherboard. I was looking at the Asus P4T-E because I already have the RDRAM that cost me a pretty penny from my old mobo. Does anyone know if this motherboard supports the faster bus speed(533MHZ) for future processor upgrades? :?:

That's a great board. Nowhere will you find it stated that it is compatible with the 533fsb Northwood's. But, it isn't stated that they won't work either. That means you should assume at this point the 2 are not compatible. give it a little and see what shakes down. If it can be done someone will do it and then you will know. I am pretty sure that ASUS was going to release the P4TE-II with the 850 chipset for the 533fsb processors.

My advice is to cross your legs and hold it a bit longer. :wink:
