Can you upgrade the cpu on a Via KT ^00


No Kevin.

AMD's use a different Processor socket, than an Intel does.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CPU_sockets#List_of_sockets_and_slots

At least when we are talking the era of your motherboard.
(Real old? Like over 20 years ago, or more? AMD's and Intel's used a lot of the same processor sockets)

The designation VIA KT600.

VIA is a Chipset manufacturer.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

VIA KT600 refers to the motherboard chipset.
The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

The VIA KT600 motherboard chipset, was manufactured for the AMD Socket 462, (Socket A -> Same/same), and AMD processors.

Intel Pentium 4's used the Socket 478 processor socket, back in the day; then moved to the LGA 775 processor socket. (Socket T)

This is a Motherboard Diagram, that fits the technology of your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit.
Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor, for short.
DOES NOT mean Personal Computer.

(If you run into somebody that uses CPU to mean a personal computer -> Slap 'em.



NO, WAIT! Don't! lol!

I can see the headlines now;
"Person slapped for using CPU to mean Personal Computer Perpetrator alleges Joecoolvette of Fixya said to do so." lol!)

This is an example of a Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip; on a motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ASRock_K7VT4A_Pro_Mainboard_Labeled_English.svg

The Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink on it, to help disperse the heat the Northbridge chip makes.
Looks a lot like the Southbridge chip, with the Heatsink removed from it.
Some motherboards do have a Heatsink, on the Southbridge too.

Your line of question makes me want to post some links, to more computer information for you.
Basic info for now. We all have to start somewhere,

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/

Scroll down to the subheading in Orange(?) -
What's Inside: Computer
Click on, one at a time; the subheadings;

1) Computer Hardware
2) Computer Peripherals
3) Computer Security
4) Computer Software
5) Internet

Click on the various subheadings in each category, for more information on that subject.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/

Click on each heading one at a time, at the Top;

A) Case: (Computer case)
B) Cooling
C) CPU (Processor)
D) Input
E) Memory
F) Mobile
G) Motherboard
,and so on.

Basic info up to technical info.

Plus always come back, and see us here.

Had this system for awhile but never had any problems. Todays internet media etc. are getting to be too demanding for the athalon processor that came bundled with this MB. What is the strongest/fastest...


http://www.xiew.com/product-detail/msi/kt4v-l/

A) Processor Socket:
Socket A (Also known as Socket 462)

B) Motherboard Chipset:

VIA KT400A

VIA KT400A Northbridge chip,
VIA VT8235 Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

[ Info reading across from the subheading KT400A, shows one, of two newer Southbridge chipsets could have been used.
The VT8237, or the VT8251.

Neither one was apparently used, or the website's info is mistaken ]

The Northbridge chip (VIA KT400A) will support;

A) Processors with no more than a 266MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (266MHz FSB)
It will support Processors with either a 200MHz FSB, or 266MHz FSB.

(AMD processors are 'double-pumped'. The 100MHz, and 133MHz FSB support shown, is 'double-pumped' to 200MHz, and 266MHz )

AMD Athlon XP with a 266MHz FSB, that fits in a Socket A processor socket, IMHO is the best.

[ To digress;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms to represent I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The Northbridge chip is so aptly named, for one, because it sits on the North side of the motherboard. Looking at the motherboard as a map, the Processor sits due 'North'.
The white long PCI slots sit due 'South'.

{In the illustration of the MSI KT4V motherboard above in FixYa, turn the motherboard to the Left }

The Northbridge chip and the Southbridge chip is the Motherboard Chipset.

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.
{Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD.
The GPU is soldered to the motherboard, not on a removable graphics card}

Motherboard Diagram, (That is for the technology used for the MSI KT4V motherboard.
Does not apply to motherboards supporting the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Northbridge chip is the motherboard chip to be concerned with, when deciding what Processors the motherboard will support.

Finding an AMD Athlon XP that fits in a Socket A processor socket, and has a maximum FSB of 266MegaHertz, is a wee tough.

In my recent search I have seen some advertised on Ebay. DO NOT know anything about them.
Here is an AMD Athlon MP 2000+,

http://www.weirdstuff.com/cgi-bin/item/13161

,that operates at a maximum of 1.67GigaHertz, and uses a 266MHz FSB.

Not advertising for the above website either, but I have dealt with them to great satisfaction.

K7SV266AD Can I use 266Mhz athalon processor with this board, book says 100/133 FSB. If so what processors? Thanks


The Syntax K7SV266AD motherboard uses a VIA motherboard chipset.

It uses a VIA KT266A for the Northbridge, and a VIA VT8235 for the Southbridge.

About the motherboard chipset;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

High-speed graphics is AGP or PCI-Express

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD. The graphics chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard, and not to a graphics adapter card. {Graphics card}

The graphics chipset is a GPU.
Graphics Processing Unit,

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

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.
It handles the IDE, and SATA capabilities of the computer.
It also handles the USB ports, Ethernet, and Audio, plus anything connected to a PCI slot, and Integrated Graphics, to list a few examples.

Motherboard Diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[For further information you may wish to search on Wikipedia,
A) Northbridge (computing)
B) Southbridge (computing)
C) Bus
D) PCI Local Bus
E) AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port)
F) PCI Express
G) Front Side Bus ]

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor to the top, and Ram Memory to the right, the VIA KT266A northbridge chip is below the Processor.
The aluminum finned Heatsink covers it.

The VIA VT8235 southbridge chip is down towards the lower right corner.

Looking at the specs for the VIA KT266A chip we can see,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

1) It supports either DDR Sdram ram memory at 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz.
PC-1600 or PC-2100, respectively.
(DDR Sdram is clocked twice. Therefore the 133MHz Front Side Bus {FSB} support will handle 266MHz ram memory)

2) The Maximum ram memory it will support is 4GB. If you have the motherboard manual, you will know what the maximum amount of Ram Memory is, that the motherboard will support.

3) Will support Processors with either a 100MHz, or 133MHz FSB. (Front Side Bus)
AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
The VIA VT266A chip will handle AMD processors with up to a 266MHz FSB.

It will handle AMD Athlon, or AthlonXP, or Duron processors, with a maximum FSB of 266MHz.

http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/chipsets/legacy/kt266a/

The best processor will be an AMD AthlonXP with a 266MHz FSB, that fits in a Socket A (Socket 462) processor socket.

Watch the Voltage used. Look up the AMD processor you have installed now, and see what voltage range it uses. The new processor must use voltage in this range also.

What is max new cpu speed to change for old cpu ? k7sv266ad


The KT266A is a VIA motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

The motherboard chipset for your motherboard, consists of a Northbridge, and Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge is a VIA 8366A
The Southbridge is a VIA VT8235

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[Note*
CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

[A graphics card installed into a PCI expansion slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Integrated Graphics is Not high-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express are high-speed graphics.
If you have an AGP graphics expansion slot, it is handled by the Northbridge chip.
If you have a PCI Express expansion slot, it is handled by the Northbridge chip ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer. This is shown in the diagram.

The VIA KT266A's Northbridge chip, (VT 8366A) supports AMD processors with UP TO a 266MHz Front Side Bus.
(266MHz FSB)

In the chart you see under the FSB heading -> 100 - 133MHz
100MHz to 133Mhz.

AMD processors are 'Double-Pumped'.
Therefore 133MHz becomes 266MHz.

233Mhz with the jumpers at their present positions?

Weird!

Looking at the motherboard, as it is mounted in the computer case; Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right,
5 White PCI slots to the Bottom;

The J4 jumper is above the CMOS battery.
The CPU Frequency Select jumper.

(The J1 jumper is right next to the CMOS battery. To the left. That is the Clear CMOS jumper)

The jumper has 3 pins. Number 1 pin is on the LEFT.
From Left to Right; Pins 1, 2, and 3.

With a jumper block,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jumperblock-shunts.jpg

,on Pins 1 and 2, you have a 100MHz FSB.

With a jumper block on Pins 2 and 3, you have a 133MHz Front Side Bus.

Processor you pick have a broken pin?

You can use AMD Athlon processors with up to a 133Mhz FSB, or AMD Duron processors with up to a 133MHz FSB.

[Actually 200MHz FSB, and 266MHz FSB. Remember what I stated about Double-Pumped ]

Example,
