I have a Intel Advanced/ZE (Tahiti) motherboard W/ 100 MHZ Intel CPU but no manual. Will this board handle a MMX chip? and what is the max speed CPU I can install? Where can I get a copy of the user manual or the jumper settings required for upgrade?

Are you sure it's Advanced/_ZE_ instead of _ZP_? At Intel's web site (http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/) they show the ZP which seems to fit your description and it says that some versions of this MB take up to 133MHz.

Your motherboard can not take an mmx unless it is an overdrive processor designed for your motherboard.  The highest speed your board can take is 133 Below you will find motherboard part #'s and revisions.

These PBAs... Support these processors...

Note 2: Only VR-spec 120 MHz processors are supported on these PBA versions.

Does the Advanced/ZP support the 150 MHz or 166 MHz Pentium processor?

No. See the table above for detailed information on which processor speeds are supported on the Advanced/ZE

Sir, You still seem to think that it is an Advanced/ZP motherboard, when this is actually an Advanced/ZE motherboard. In reply to question 10220000.nws on the intel forum Mark C. stated that if it was a Socket 7 Advanced/ZE motherboard then it would support 200 mhz. Look into it!

I used Alta Vista and Yahoo to search for Tahiti Motherboards. Do they have a Web site or e-mail address? If not, what is the EXACT name of the Motherboard Manufacturer?
