Question about Foxconn WinFast K7S741MG Motherboard for AMD Socket 462 CPU (K7S741MB6L)

1 Answer

Compatible CPU I wanted to upgrade my CPU from a AMD Athlon XP 1600+ , 1.4GHz to an Athlon XP 2600+ 1.8GHz My WinFast motherboard documentation says it suppoorts both 256 and 333 FSB. The faster chip is 256, i am not sure of my current one. I know little about computers, but could install the chip if it was just a straight forward swap, with maybe a little tweaking. Can I swap these two chips? Thanks, Mike

Check the winfast website for a cpu support list for your model of motherboard, that will tell you if it supports it and ALSO if you need to update the bios to support later cpu's, i'd imagine your using the old socket A standard, see if your motherboard is listed here> http://www.leadtek.com/eng/mainboard/default.asp?lineid=3&seriesid=23&chipseriesid=15 (this is what is now listed in google as winfast and does show winfast boards), please advise if you get stuck anymore.

Upgrade CPU on Matsonic MS8147C+


Unfortunately I think the Athlon XP is a 462 pin package and the MS8147C+ has a SocketA/Socket 462 socket for the CPU. The Athlon 64 3800+ is a 940 pin package and requires a AM2 socket, so this CPU will not physically fit.

Upgrade the 1.6GHz CPU on L7VMM2 Motherboard


ECS Support > L7VMM2 motherboard > Main Support page,

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=419&CategoryID=1&MenuID=50&LanID=0

Click on the CPU tab.

(Features / Specification / Download / Support / FAQ / CPU / etc)

Will support Up To an AMD Athlon XP 2600+,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors


Maximum Front Side Bus support is 266Megahertz.
(Max FSB = 266MHz)

(Motherboard manual states 133MHz.
Note that AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
This = 266MHz )

Supports AMD Athlon, AMD Athlon XP, and AMD Duron, processors.

Note in the CPU Support chart where it states -
Socket 462 > AMD Athlon XP > 2600+ (.13u)
The .13u stands for 130nm core architecture technology.

(nm = NanoMeter.
1 Billionth of a Meter )

NOTE*
For the Socket 462 (Socket A) processors, the AMD Athlon XP models are the top of the line.

'Sempy', or Sempron processors are at the bottom.
Low L2 processor memory cache compared to Athlon XP or Duron models.

Hi Hope you can help my mother board is K8M890-M2MB-RS2H Processor a Main Circuit Board b 2.20 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7600) I am looking to upgrade...


As long as it is an ATX compatible power supply increasing the available wattage is not an issue, only meeting MIMIMUM power requirements
You can go to a 500, or even a 750 as long as it has the correct motherboard connections

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)
