View Full Version : ASUS A7V133 MB & Athlon XP 2100??

01 January 2005, 12:25 AM
Hi everyone,

Does anyone have this Motherboard and know what the CPU upgrade options are?
I have an older system with a Athalon 1.333 processor. In the process of a general OS / Bios refresh I see that Asus released a Bios version 1009 that supports Athlon XP 2100+(Model 6)(Palomino).

I checked prices and at about $60.00 it might be worth an upgrade. But what about this Model 6 stuff. Is there a model 7 that won't work?

And what about the the XP 2800+ at 266 mhz, do you think that will work - or fit, Palomino vs Barton core?

I don't really have answers to your questions but you should check out

I'm sure you'll find whatever you need there.

Good luck!

To the best of my knowledge the highest CPU frequency that can be used with the A7V133 is 1.662 GHz (12,5 x 133) while the XP 2100+ is running at over 1700 GHz. Also you should take care if the correct core voltage is available.
