Question about ASUS P4V8X-MX Motherboard

Processor upgrade for my Asus P4V8X-MX motherboard

I am currently running a Pentium 4, 3.00 GHz, processor with 1 GB of ram. I am interested in speeding things up, as it's slowing down with age. About 3 years old now.
QUESTION: What are my Processor upgrade options for this motherboard. Does a new processor necessarily mean new memory? I think my memory is DDR... but I wouldn't swear to it.
Thanks for any info.

    Thank you for your time and assistance. Looks like I'm going to need a new motherboard, processor and memory, but that's okay. The increase in speed will be worth it.

    Thanks!

Look..I dont know exactly your mainboard ,but one thing Im sure and Ill say to you..the old ddr and sdr are already history.
today we are almost at the beginning of ddr3 age..so I suggest you to upgrade the ramms.
and for this you have to change the mainboard.
the board you have is quite limited in the processor upgrade..speaking of this period we are crossing now with core 2 duo pentium processors..and theese sure arent suported by your board..
so my friend..I suggest you to leave this board because she already had her great time and place and jump to the present.
I suggest you a well equilibrate board..maybe a intel if you want to remain intel,or abit,even asus...and like processor I suggest the small core 2 duo e 4300..its quite cheap and does all you need..and the rams...well definettly take 2 G ddr2 800 Mhz..you will find them cheaper than ddr simple..
good luck..bye bye

Can windows 7 be installed on asus k8v-mx mb with amd sempron 2.4 1gb ddr1ram


this is the minimum spec for Windows 7:

  • Processor: 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
  • Memory: 1 GB of system memory
  • Hard drive: 16 GB of available disk space
  • Video card: Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)
  • Drive: DVD-R/W drive
  • Internet connection (to download the Beta and get updates)
Its not the motherboard, its the processor speed, RAM size, and hard drive space, and video card capability that counts.Your processor speed well meets this criteria and also your RAM size is within spec for Windows 7, and im sure you will have in excess of 16GiG hard drive space. So its all down to your video card. You may need to install DirectX 9.Hope this helps :)

    Upgrading CPU


    Yeah, it was a bit hard to find, not being a currernt model I was stuck on the Asus site trying to find out for you.
    Then I found this site -
    http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=6&id=465&pg=
    It says
  • Socket 478 for Intel� Pentium 4 / Celeron processors
  • Intel� Pentium 4 Processors 1.4GHz - 2.53GHz or higher
  • Intel� Celeron Processors 1.7GHz - 1.8GHz or higher
  • Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
    Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
    Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to -
    http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
    Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that " P4S533-MX BIOS 1005
    Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002

    There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one.
    Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement.
    Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find.
    A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf

    I have an asus p48vx-x motherboard


    you may check
    1) your Intel pentium 4 3.2 GHZ cpu socket 478 processor #sl7nb what's FSB?( see on the chip surface, if 533 FSB can use but 800FSB could not match your motherboard if which is not support 800 FSB. that's why no display.
    2) check RAM stick speed, try to increase a level, for example 266 to 333.
    is this helpful please feedback thanks

    Hi,
    yeah possibly, providing you,ve got the sys-bus speed to go with it, and plenty of Matched Speed RAM.
    And a good quality heat-sink paste, heatsink and fan.
    You,ll be thrashing the capicitors to the max, with everything running. but you,ll get 3-6 months probably.
