Calling for Mac CPU Experts!

This is up for auction on ebay:

I have a Sawtooth 400, and I'd like to know whether this will work in it. If it will, I'll bid on it; if not, I won't.

There are several QuickSilver CPUs up for auction. I've heard they can be made to work with some hardware kludges, but I'm too old for that kind of project.

I want to say there would be an issue with the front side bus (100mhz vs. 133 mhz). I'm no expert though so I might not have a clue.

Good point. It might run slow (dual 400) or not at all.

I've run the uni-north-checker and it says I have a rev 7, so a dual upgrade would work, but the bus speed is probably a deal-breaker.
