Re: looking for the best/fastest processor for this board

I'm running a Model: 8 Athlon XP Socket: A Clock Speed: 2.0 FSB Speed: 266 Core: Throughbred Cache: L1/128 L2/256. I think you have to stick with 266mhz front side bus, using the Throughbred Core. I'm not 100% but there are a lot for sle on ebay not too expensive.

M2NPV-VM - Fastest Processor?

If ASUS says that is the fastest that will work on the board, then they should know. Incidentally processors don't run at 95 volts although some run at a power consumption of 95 watts. Besides there is not a faster AM2 CPU than the one you mention.

1) The Processor has the fastest memory. It is the Cache.
(L1, L2, and for some Processors, L3)
Operates at the same frequency rate ('Speed'), as the Processor.

It is a small memory area for the Processor.

2) Next is the Ram Memory. Random Access Memory.
Ram memory typically operates at HALF of the Processor's FSB.
It is the second fastest memory on the motherboard.

3) Next after the Ram Memory is the Harddrive.
Harddrive's have a Buffer.
Buffer is a Cache for a Harddrive. A small memory area.
The Harddrive is the third fastest memory.

Looking for a compatible processor for this mobo

It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.

Fastest CPU available for the K7N2G?

Look for socket A processors and ignore the XXXX+ and focus on the XXXXMHz rating (the MoBo's manufacturer's support site will give you the max processor your Board will handle). Since you mention that your MoBo is 4 to 5 years old, you'll probably better serve yourself to replace the MoBo and processor (you'll be able to upgrade to a much better/faster processor by upgrading both, and shouldn't cost that much more), and probably be happier with the result. You may want/need to upgrade your Power supply while you are at it too.

Better processor

Not sure which family of AMD Athlon you mean, probably just Athlon, not AthlonXP or other, but I do know that 2400+ isn't 2.00ghz, however, that aside, there are alot of processors supported by this motherboard, but in specific families.

This is a link to MSI's website and the CPU Compatibility list for this Motherboard. The AthlonXP 3000+ w/ 166/333 FSB is the Fastest this board will support, and as to where you can find it, there are numerous online stores that may still carry this. A few to check would be CDW (, TigerDirect (, NewEgg ( and ChiefValue ( to name a few. These are all sites that I have personally done business with to know they are legitimate companies.

Hope this helps!
