    Obviously 1GB 400 MHz is faster than 333 MHz.But be sure that your motherboard can support 400 MHz FSB. IF it's highest supporting speed is 333 MHz, you can install even 800 MHz RAM in it, it will perform not more than 333 MHz. Oh yes if you install 2 GB RAM in your motherboard, it will be a good option than using ! GB RAM. My opinion is install 2 GB RAM even it is 333 MHz than installing 1 GB RAM of speed 400 MHz. :-)

Whats the biggest and or best cpu i can put into this motherboard. i curently have an amd athlon xp 2800. i just bought some more ram and wold like to know if i can speed up the cpu.


Here is a list of supported CPUs.

http://www.ruby-electronics.com/store_item/MSI_Athlon_XP_Duron_nForce2_Motherboard_K7N2_Delta_MS-6570-020

If you're going to upgrade to the XP3000+ (the fastest supported CPU), then be sure to get the one with the 200 MHz FSB.

Also, go with the lowest supported latency DDR PC3200 you can get IN PAIRS. Remember that Windows XP 32 bit only allows a total memory allocation of 4 GB which must include your video car memory and any memory allocation for add-on cards.

So 6 512MB sticks of DDR PC3200 are better than 2 2GB sticks of DDR PC3200. As the 6 sticks will allow for dual channel transfers (above and beyond the Double Data Rate) and will keep you well within your 4GB limit (once you add the video memory and any add-on cards).

You'll also benefit from doing a fresh install of XP with nlite or similar and stripping XP of all of the components you don't use. Good LUCK!

First of all, if your FSB is set to 200mhz, the system will not support DDR400. "CPU at FSB 200MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR400". The FSB will have to be either 333 or 400mhz in order to utilize DDR400. Only 1GB of DDR400 is supported. As to your rebooting issue, could be because of these incompatibilities and/or you did not properly seat the heatsink/fan on the new CPU, which also means you might not have properly applied thermal compound or might have no applied it at all. All the compatibility information for this motherboard can be found at: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=K7S8XE

How to get my CPU to run at the correct speed


Your FSB should be 400 MHz for the Athlon XP 3200+ processor.
CPU-Z shows your core speed at 1320 and your FSB at 241. If you multiply those numbers by 1.66, you get 2200 and 400. So all you have to do is get the board to the correct FSB speed of 400 and your core will be right.
There are two MSI boards with the number CPU-Z gives you. Board 1
Board two

The AMD page doesn't show the core voltage for the older processors, they do for the current ones. I looked at the MSI site and didn't see their manuals online for the motherboards either, sorry. I'm not positive it was changed using a jumper though, you saw nothing in the BIOS to set it? If the jumpers are on the board they may be labeled FSB and you can try the various positions.

Hope that helps, good luck.

Hello,

Thank you for the information. Please find the CPUs supported by the Motherboard of your computer below.

Duron: 1.6 - 1.8 GHz at FSB 266 MHz
Athlon XP:
Palomi** Core: 1500+ - 2100+ at FSB 266 MHz
Thoroughbred Core: 1700+ - 2700+ at FSB 266/333 MHz
Barton Core: 2500+ - 3200+ at FSB 333 MHz
2500+ - 3200+ at FSB 400 MHz

Sempron: 3000 + and up
I see that the present processor is requires ** upgrade as it is one of the best match availble for this motherboard. However, you can upgrade the Memory to 2 GB using two 1GB
DDR 266/333/400 modules to improve the system perform performance. Also, you can consider for a video card upgrade. Your computer supports both AGP and PCI video cards.

Also, you can download the maunal for the motherboard of your computer from the link below for your referance.
