The Matsonic MS8137C uses the VIA KT266A chipset thus you'll be limited to a processor with a 100~133Mhz side bus frequency (FSB) alternatively referred to as a 266FSB chip.

The Athlon XP3000 uses a 166 dual FSB (alternatively refered to 333FSB) so even if you could get it to run it wouldn't be able to stretch it's legs being limited to the chipset's maximum FSB Vs. CPU multiplier.

Presuming your motherboard will support it (and I imagine it would), the maximum CPU you'll be able to run at full spec is a Thoroughbred 2600+ AXDA2600DKV3C (there is also a D prefix chip that uses 166Mhz FSB you don't want this one).

Early AMD Athlon processor specifications can be found HERE

Additionally you may need to also update your motherboard's BIOS version to take full advantage of any revisions (and subsequnet CPU support enhancements)

Hello , my server mainboards fsb is stuck at 100mhz , the board can support to 133mhz , but i cant set that speed in the bios , the settings are greyed out. my cpu supports a max speed to 1500mhz but now...


It sounds like the system is set to "auto" at the moment, OR the memory speed will not support the 133mhz fsb speed, check the RAM and see what the speed rating is. Leave the CPU multiplier alone, that may well damage the cpu.

I have motherboard ms8137c with cpu 1.6 ghz but it works like on 950 mhz, what sould i do to repair that


All Athlons were until a few months ago named on a power rating, not actual CPU speed rating. Since you didn't tell me the exact type of your processor i believe that it's the actual , normal speed of your CPU. But if it isn't then it's underclocked. To verify that go in the BIOS and see if the FSB is the correct value - 133MHz - sometimes it's at the default value of 100MHz. This can be changed from 2 locations:
1 - the JP4 jumper on the motherboard - 2-3 corresponds to 133MHz (of course you should change it only with the pc is disconnected from the mains)
2 - in BIOS go to Frequency/Voltage Control - CPU Host Clock and set it to 133.

Too old???


Yes, it is time for a new motherboard. Socket A was nice in its day, but its day is long gone. You could get a decent combination package (motherboard & processor) that would triple your speed for under $100. Just add some new memory and you will be all set. Go for a name brand board, but I shy away from ECS.
