Does my mainboard support CPU core voltage of 1.475V?

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-6OX(Intel i815ep chipset). I'm now using a Pentium3 600EB CPU. Now I want to update my CPU to Tulatin Celeron series. I already have a 370-370 adaptor. But I don't know whether my motherboard supports 1.475V CPU core. Anyone can help?

Thanks. But I don't think the website gives me the details on cpu core voltage. Also I tried to email Gigabytes but there's no reply.

Maybe intel would give you more of an idea

Some adaptors can change the voltage for you.  Have you had a look @ that?

I had a look at the gigabyte website.  Look at "intel 815 series m/b vs cpu"

Earlier motherboards do not have the two new pins (VID25mv & VTTPWRGD) that the Tualatin requires for proper operation.  There is no possibility that the Tualatin will work on older motherboards that don’t properly support the CPU.

Your Max cpu is a celeron 900 or a piii 1gig.

Thank you, kingsize. My motherboard doesn't directly supports Tulatin CPU. But I got a 370-370 converter which can help old 370 series motherboard to support FC-PGA2 package CPU such as Tulatin.

They sell the adaptor....I'd e-mail them.
