How high can I go (processor) ?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I got another question (as usual :) ).

Looking to upgrade my processor.

My mobo is an MSI K7N2 Delta-L and I am currently running an Athlon XP 2600+ with a Barton core.

According to the website (MSI):

Supports Socket A for AMD® Athlon™/Athlon™ XP/Duron™/Sempron™ processors

@FSB 266/333/400

Supports up to Athlonâ„¢ XP 3000+ processor or higher

I know that my processor is a socket A; but Semprons are socket 754.

It might be painfully obvious but will a Sempron work with my mobo, or am I limited to just the Athlon XP 3000+?

I think you're mixing the old socket A sempron up with the socket 754 sempron 64 mate, you'd be better off with an xp3000+ if you can get hold of one, and get the revision B as it runs at 400mhz FSB as opposed to the A which only runs at 333mhz FSB, I found that one out the hard way (spits feathers)

p.s. found a bit of info here about semprons for ya
