If its an AMD/Cyrix/Winchip Processor it would fit into the 586/k5/5x86/6x86/6x86Mx category, if its a Intel Chip, its a Pentium Classic

We would need more info to able to identify the processor on your board.

The PcChips M537 is a socket 7 board that supports Pentium 54C (Pentium Classic), Pentium 55C (Pentium MMX), Cyrix/IBM 6x86, Cyrix/IBM 6x86L, Cyrix/IBM 6x86MX, AMD K5 and AMD K6.

The type of processor fitted is shown on the boot screen during memory count.

He already said it was a PC Chips Model M537 motherboard and is 133 mhz

I would assume he meant 133Mhz processor...not much else would fit into there...
If he's trying to fit it into a category, my above post applies....

I was not implying that your post did not apply HWJ just that the info supplied (133MHz CPU) is insufficient to be able to accurately indentify the processor and therefore answer his question positively.

I was also aware that the poster knew that his board was an M537 and only provided the CPU support given by the board in case this was what the poster was after.

I'm sure that the info from both posts will be of use to the poster.

Well Said Aussie. If the processor in question is, for exampke, an AMD K6-2 450MHz it will list upon start up with memory count **Although if overclocked at an unknown speed then the speed will show different then the actual speed of the processor.
The type of processor will show...

Alright just making sure. :D

Thought maybe you had thought something else...or something or other....anyways....

If the poster really wants to know who made his chip all he has to do is look at the surface of it...

Which entails removing the heatsink to have a look and then re-applying paste to it when refitting with all of the inherant risks associated with that process, wouldn't it be much easier just to look at the boot screen and read what kind of processor is in the board?

Ok ok...assuming it shows up there, most computers did display it...

I am the kind of kid who used to take apart dad's drill to see how it worked...never mind what it did when it was together.... :D
