I have no idea how old this info is, other than the BIOS version used for the test:
This is from MSI's global siteMS-6340/6340Mhttp://www.msi.com.tw/program/.../mai...1&NAME=MS-6340M
BIOS Version: W6340VMS.470
According to MSI the Duron 1600 won't run, and there's a whole pack of other 133/266FSB CPU's that won't either? Seems to contradict the info given on MSI's US site:http://www.msicomputer.com/pro...ail_...del=KM133A_Pro5
• Athlon XP (Socket A) to 1900+
• Athlon (Socket A) to 1.4GHz
• Duron (Socket A) to 950MHz
A Duron 1600 actually runs at 1600MHz (12 x 133), and from the information above the max. CPU speed you can obtain is a XP1900+XP 1900:
Palomino core: (1500 - 2100+) 1.75 v
Thoroughbred "A" core (1700 - 2100+) 1.50 - 1.65v
Thoroughbred "C" core (1700 - 2400+) 1.60 - 1.65vDuron 1600:
I think the problem arises with the core voltage. I am not sure your board would recognise the Duron 1600 and set the core voltage accordingly - sorry for not having more concrete info but this is a grey area for me.
I would ignore the MSI CPU chart, and first get into the <latest> BIOS with your current CPU. See if you can alter the core voltage as low as possible. The Duron 1600 is a pretty good over-clocker but if you can only run "Palomino" core XP's then that may be risky.
Some Duron 1600 overclocking - raised core voltages:http://forums.extremeoverclock...arch...dex.php/t-68315
Hope some of this info helps you out.
