    Guess nobody can answer this question. Would like to save my old P4 3.06 H/T by putting it on another motherboard if possible that it would work on.

    Yes it will work...I had the same processor. Another option would to sell it on ebay, they go for $200 all day long being the fastest 533 proc and is the only one that supports HT.
    AMD X2 4800+ AC freezer pro 64 cooler, ASUS A8N prem. 2G OCZ platinum PC3200, eVGA 8800GTS 640MB, 37G SATA Raptor, OCZ 700W PSU.

    Thanks Kingofools for a straight answer to question. Got another board and have the P4 3.06 H/T up and running. $80 board is a lot cheaper than buying another board, CPU and new memory for that board. I am back running for $80 and my time to switch it out. And you do not notice $700 worth of difference in it and a board and CPU with 800FSB if you will notice any at all.

    I think the reason most people upgraded to the 800fsb was for the h/t'ing.

    the 3gig 533fsb is worth a pretty penny indeed for just such a reason.

    I'd say an easy 125-150 for sure.
