There's a couple of you who insist that there is no such thing as a 533E (coppermine), I realise that we went over this before....but, I've talked to a couple of suppliers who insist they can get me one and I also found a 533E on overclockers.com. Now that I think we have that settled, what can I o/c it to so I won't have probs with an asus V6600 (Geforce)?
Here we go again That 533E is an error!!!!that's why when you try to pull down specs it lists as 0 found.
They make a 533B (512 cache 133mhz FSB) slot one.
They make a 533EB (coppermine, 256 cache 133mhz FSB) slot one.
They are as confused as the rest of us by Intels stupid marketing practices.
Save us all a headache and get yourself a 600E they are down to $365 and have a better multiplier. (especially than a non-existant chip!)
If you lived here, you'd be home by now...
Hehe, Maybe the 533E only sells in Canada Eh?....just kidding. Anyway what I'll do is have them get me one I'll take a look at it and see for myself, I'm guessing there is a visible difference. They should come out with a better system since most of the places here in Montreal insist there is a PIII 533E ($495 cnd). By the time this is solved the 600E will probably be the same price, so chances are I'll end up with that anyway .
AND NO IT'S NOT A CELERON....I'M CONFUSED NOT ILLITERATE...LOL
As of 1-16-2000 Intel lists no data for a 533E (see chart above). They have no data sheet, they do not list it as available. They don't mention a 533E. Your retailer is wrong, you can order the chip and see for yourself. By the time we settle this argument Intel will probably offer a 533E any damn way.

B denotes 133 MHz FSB. There is no way on earth you can get 533 MHz with a x/2 (x=whole number) multiplier and a 100 MHz FSB. The store in Montreal is either sloppy or has no idea what they are talking about. I also tried several places in Toronto and the sales people have no idea what I am talking about half the time. One time I called up a place asking for 500e, the salesperson told me they shipped their entire shipment back cuz no mobo supports it. Then I told him they would need new FC-slockets and new BX mobo like the P3Bf and BF6 and Be6v.2 would also support the new FC-slockets and he didn't believe me. I almost gave him a few URL so he can look it up himself. Trust me, I think the people in here are more up to date on hardware then most sales people I have met in Toronto.
A Cumine with a 100 MHz FSB will be easier to o/c, leaves you more room to go up. Try to o/c when you are at 133 MHz FSB already and you don't have much room to go up. At like 140 and 150 MHz FSB you need really good RAM (like HSDRAM and Samsung G6 prefereble). My CL DDR is running at 140 MHz FSB. I also ran it at 99 Mhz AGP bus before too.
