WTB: Twin Katmai Processors

Hi,

I'm looking for a couple of Katmai PIII-550 Processors. (NOT Coppermine)

They need to be a matched pair, as they are for an old dual-processor board I had lying around which used to run twin Deschutes/333 in.

The Katmai are 100MHz FSB, and are older than the Coppermines.

If anyone has a couple of these, please give me a shout!

Hang on.. isn't there a chipset problem here?

Wasn't the PII 333 run on a GX chipset? with a 66MHz FSB Does that support any PIII 550 processors?

Vague old memories here so not really suprised if I'm wrong.

The chipset in question is an Intel 440BX (Soyo DI6BA board) with twin Slot-1 on board.

I've researched as much as I can from the manufacturers site (and other sources) and it appears that the Katmai 550 is the max processor that can be used.
