Default Some questions on my motherboard and upgrading CPU processor speed

Hello again,

I have a few questions regarding upgrading CPU's on my motherboard. Currently i have a Tyan Tiger S2466N motherboard. I talked to the tech guys and they said i couldn't go higher than a 2600+ cpu processor. I thought i might get some feedback from you guys because maybe it's still possible to go with a higher speed cpu. Thanks.

If the tech guys said that is the maximum speed, then I don't think you can use anything faster unless you overclock it.

You can do it (overclocking that is )but unless you cool it better it could get damaged.

To overclock it you will need a better cooling/heatsink .
