CPU upgrade

I have a HP Pavillion with a Trigem Imperial GL VE 20021218 motherboard that  has a Celeron SL77S CPU installed from the factory. The specifications of this motherboard says it supports a front side bus of 400MHz. The Celeron SL77S's basic specs are: 2.7GHz/128KB L2 cache/400MHz front side bus. HP says the motherboard will support a Pentium 4 CPU but does not give a model number, type, or any such information. I can find plenty of P-4's with 2.4 GHz/512KB/533MHz dirt cheap, but the P-4's with 400MHz FSB are way up there. My question is this: Does this MOBO support 400/533MHz FSB chips, or just 400? All help is appreciated.

PS. I just like reviving old boat anchors!  Ask about my Packard Bell.
