Hello I have on older board that I bought from ebay with a Sempron 2800+ Skt A in it. The deal is it reports it as a Athalon XP at 950 mhz, I have set the jumpers to 165mhz FSB as thats the highest i can go on this old chipset, but the bios string still reads at 950mhz. Will I have to upgrade my board, it does not have a Sempron supported bios for it because the chipset is to slow, or would I be better to try to get an older XP CPU. I have this exact board running a 2600+ Throughbred B with 1024gb of DDR 400, and it does really well, thogh my ram is a little slow.

Socket A semprons run at 166MHz and your board may only support 133MHz. It would be best to invest in a new motherboard.

Correct speed for a sempron 2800 is 12x166=2GHz. But it looks like yours may be a sempron 2300 (9.5 multiplier). You can check the OPN on the processor to be sure which model you have.

the numbers are all rubbed off the CPU, the guy I bought it from told me it was a 2800. Guess me an him will have words.

Just one question is it possible to OC this chipset to reach the speeds I want? Also will my DDR 400 work on a 266fsb board or will I have to down grade.

Your ddr400 memory will quite happily run at 266.

I think you'll be stuck at 266 with that chipset.

That would make your mainboard either of the following:

PCChips M825LU series OR ECS K7VMM series

What color is it, red or purple? and what version is written on the mainboard?

PCChips M825LU series

Now you need to determine what revision, because some of them DO support 166MHz ie 333 bus processors...

M825L (V1.2a)
M825LU (V1.2a)
M825LU (V3.1)
M825LU (V5.2A)

Update its a Biostar the guy I bought it from told me wrong. Its an M7VIG 400, my ram is running at 400. Also got a Barton 3000 200FSB chip on it, I found it for 50 bucks on ebay, and jumped all over it. Now if only this was 8X AGP I'd be happy, cause my 6600 normal sucks on it.

Glad you figured the board out!

In all honesty there is little difference between 4x & 8x on AGP...more of a marketing gimmick
