Hello,

Can someone tell me what the fastest CPU type that would work on the above board. The MSI link is
http://www.msi.com.tw/program/.../mai...tail.php?UID=97' ">http://www.msi.com.tw/program/..._mbd_detail.php?UID=97

I currently run a 700, but would like to upgrade to at least 1.2 Ghz while I can still find them on auctions...

Like I said, I have:

MSI KT7 Pro V.1 MB with a Duron 700 stock.
384 Mb of PC133 sdram using all 3 slots

I almost bought a 1.1 or 1.2 CPU in a store, but they said the FSB (at 200) might not be ok with my setup. As far as I know, since the last two numbers on my CPUID are 1B (D 700 A U T 1 B to be exact), my FSB is brobably 200 (but then, the MSI website talks about a 200MHz FSB under chipset, and a "Support 100MHz (200MHz Internal System Bus)" under FSB. What is all this crap?

I think I am safe as long as I stick to a CPU ending in 1B as well.

Any takers??

durondork,

I know that the website for your mobo says:
QUOTE CPU

• Supports AMD® Athlon™/Duron™ Processors
• Supports 600MHz ~ 1.2GHz
But I think it could actually support up to a classic Athlon 1400*B*
In the Athlon 'classic' (or Thunderbird) series, the *B* says that it runs at a 100 MHz FSB / 200 MHz DDR (200 MHz Double Data Rate)
This is sometimes expressed as a 100/200 CPU
The Thunderbird *C* series was a 133/266 type, and the VIA KT133 chipset used in your mobo can NOT support that 133 MHz frequency.

ALL of the Durons, up to and including the 1300 Duron, were of the same 100/200 configuration as the *B*, so I believe that any of these will work as well, and they are a heck of a lot cheaper, and easier to find, than a 'classic' Athlon Thunderbird 100/200
A Duron 1.3GHz is $40 on http://www.pricewatch.com' ">http://www.pricewatch.com
An Athlon 1.3GHz 200 FSB is $65 on the same http://www.pricewatch.com' ">http://www.pricewatch.com

Hey Milt,

Thanks so much for your quick reply.
I used your link to find a really cheap Duron, too.

Well, I guess 1.2GHz should keep me busy for a little while. I have to admit, this is more out of the need to tinker than to have a faster PC...

Thanks again.
