Dear CPU Scorekeeper

I have noticed that newer HP Pavilion 6535's come with faster processors, namely the 533 MHz and 633 MHz processors (unless the latter is a typo).

Does this mean I can simply get a Celeron processor in a faster clock speed and swap out the stock 466 MHz processor?

Do I have to change any BIOS settings?

If so, how fast could the stock motherboard go?

- - Dave, October 2000

See the questionCPU Scorekeeper Responds

The HP Pavilion 6535 computer was shipped only with the 466MHz Celeron. The faster Celerons you are noticing are provided with the newer 6635 and 6735 models.

As they also use Socket-370 (PPGA) flavour Celerons, you should be able to swap the stock  processor for a faster one. You should not have to change any of the BIOS settings, as the motherboard should recognise the faster chip automatically. An upgrade to the latest BIOS is a good idea, though, to ensure you have the latest compatibility fixes and Windows 2000 support.

If you are ready to go for a 700MHz Celeron, you should be able boost your CPU speed by at least 60%
