Thanks for your reply.

It does work with a Celeron CPU, but refuses to work with a Celeron "D" CPU.

I need to know if theres a way to get it to work with a celeron "D" CPU.

Hi vmoodley,

Here is what I was able to find on Asus motherboard compatibility with Celeron D CPUs:

Asus P5LD2, 945P chipset and
Asus P5ld2-deluxe, P945P chipset and
Asus P5LD2-VM, 945G chipset are compatible with
Celeron D 330J - 3xxJ processors

and apparently:
ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe
ASUS A7N8X-E
which were referenced at: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/celeron-d.html
as part of the test bed setup on page 8 of 15 of the article.

IOWs, your Asus P4S533-MX motherboard is most definitely P4 compatible AYAK and apparently is not compatible with Celeron D.

The ASUS A7N8X-E does NOT support any Intel CPU as its an AMD socket A board, so I think your reference is incorrect.

Here's where you can see what CPU's your motherboard supports: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

It doesn't support any of the recent processors like the Prescott's, Celeron-D's, Pentium-D's, or any of the 800Mhz FSB or faster processors. And there is no way to make it support them.

Hi Triple6,

The Asus A7N8X-E was a part of the testbed on the referenced link page 8 of 15 and (you of course are correct) did not support the Celeron D part of the test.

Good link you provided, thanks Triple6!
