I have a Giga-byte 7vrx rev2 which has a 266 mhz fsb. This means that Sempron is not supported. The problem is that at the moment is very difficult to find a Thourougbred at 266 mhz, let's say impossible in the shops.
I tried for two minutes to put a Sempron 2400+ in my MB and anyway everything seemed to work fine. Booting fine, recognized cpu as 1600 (!?!?!?!
. I didn't use much, since this cpu was lent from a friend and I didn't want to break it. So the question is....
Is just a matter of underclocking or shall I expect some problems in using a Sempron CPU in my MB at 266 mhz???
Is there a way to use a Sempron in my MB without such an underclocking as it seems?
Thanks for any advice
PS I have 2*256 Mb Ram PC2700 and Duron 1,6 at the moment
