No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.

Ms 6367 ver 1 0


1) The MSI ms-6367 version 1.0 motherboard, was made especiallly for HP desktop computers.
(MicroStar International)


It is not an MSI -> O.E.M motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)
Therefore, ONLY HP would have a BIOS update for this board, and not MSI..........


2) The original Processors used were AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Maximum frequency rate, (Excuse me, 'Speed'), is 1.67GigaHertz.
(1.67GHz)
Front Side Bus frequency rate is 266MegaHertz.
(FSB = 266MHz)

You are trying to use an AMD 'Sempy' processor, that has an FSB of 333MHz.
This = No.

Why?

Because, even if you could somehow boost the FSB up to 333MHz, your ram memory would not work anymore, and your expansions slots. (i.e., PCI, AGP, etc)

(Change Voltage for processor {CPU}, or change Multiplier; in BIOS Setup utility. This would change the FSB)

Ram memory typically operates at Half of the processor's FSB.

3) I realize all you may have around is a Sempron, but let me post some facts;

A) The AMD Sempron, and the Intel Celeron are BUDGET processors. Also known as Starter processors.......
Why?

Because both have less Cache, than per se a comparable AMD Athlon XP processor, or Intel Pentium 4 processor.

(AMD Athlon XP compared to AMD Sempron;
Intel Pentium 4 compared to Intel Celeron)

What is Cache for a processor?
It is a small memory area for the Processor, and operates at the same frequency rate, ('Speed'), as the Processor.
Therefore it is the first memory area the Processor accesses.

[Ram Memory is next, then the Harddrive.
Mechanical harddrive, or Solid State.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/computer-hard-drives-disks-channel.htm ]

A crude example if I may;

You are writing a thesis for college.
You find as you go along, that you need some additional information.
Where is it?
Down in the basement, in a box of books, last book on the bottom.
Oh, and there is NO basement light........

Down you go, flashlight in hand. Dig through the box of books, and retrieve the book you desire.
Now back up the steps, and open the book to the page you want.

OR,

You press a few keys on the computer keyboard in front of you, and have your needed info in seconds........

Less Cache = Basement scenario
More Cache = Computer scenario

I would drill a hole through that 'Sempy' processor, and make it into a necklace. (Wouldn't wear it though! lol!)

Jus sayin'.

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.

Can I upgrade my 1Ghz processor to a faster 2 or 3Ghz? I have an EliteGroup 741GX-M, socket 462 desktop with an AMD sempron


yes, it is possible, but the Front side bus will limit the functionality so much that it wouldn't be worth it.

Cpu


If functioning correctly, your motherboard will support the following types and speeds of CPU's

  • Supported Processors:
  • AMD Athlon XP/Sempron/Duron
  • Socket A processors
  • 200/266/333 MHz FSB
So likely it tops out at Athlon XP3000+ /333MHz
or
Sempron 3000+ socketA/462.

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.
