Default Xeon question...

I'm sure this will seem like a stupid question to many but...
What is the difference between a 603 pin and 604 pin CPU.
I know that the 603 has a 400fsb and the 604 has a 533 fsb, but are the 603 pin cpus compatible with 604pin MOBOs? I'm trying to figure out if a 2.2gig 603 pin chip will work with the ASUS PC-DL board. The ASUS doesn't mention anything about the 603 pin chip. So what is the compatability situation with these chips?
Any info is appreciated.
Thanks.

Default Re: Xeon question...

The difference between the 603-pin version and the 604-pin version is that Xeons with a 533MHz or 800MHz FSB have the extra pin, therefore they don't fit into boards with the 603-pin socket. The extra pin isn't connected to anything, it's just there to enforce the bus speed difference. The older 603-pin Xeons will fit into the 604-pin sockets and function correctly, at their usual 400MHz bus speed.
