According to the manual the board supports 1 gig of either SDRAM or DDR .

Click on the link click on USA

On page 6, I believe is the following specs.

• Two 168-pin DIMM slots for SDRAM memory modules
• Two 184-pin DIMM slots for DDR memory modules
• Support SDRAM up to 100 MHz / DDR up to 200 MHz memory bus
• Maximum installed memory is 1GB
Note: You cannot use SDRAM and DDR simultaneously.

DOES K7SOM MOTHERBOARD UPGRADABLE?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/Downloads_Driver_Detail.aspx?MenuID=61&LanID=0&detailid=79#Download-2

And the + versions:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/ECSSearch.aspx?menuid=0&lanid=0&keyword=K7SOM+

I would say no because the cpu does not exist anymore.

The only thing you can upgrade is the harddrive and the ram module.

The mainboard uses SDram and DDR ram in there own seperate block.
Sdram is hard to find and expensive.
DDRram can still be bought.

The specifications:

PROCESSORS

462 pin Socket A supports the AMD K7 processors
Full series of Athlon XP/Athlon/Duron processors
CHIPSET

SiS 740 & SiS 961/962 Chipset
SiS 740 Host/Memory controller with high quality 3D graphic accelerator
SiS 961/961B/962 MuTIOL Media I/O
Integrated USB 2.0 host controller in SiS 962
LPC I/O -ITE8705F
LAN: MAC integrated in SiS 961/961B/962 and PHY on board
AC97 Audio Codec: Compliant with AC97 2.2 specification
SYSTEM BIOS

AMI 2MB Flash EEPROM
Supports Plug and Play 1.0A, AMP 1.2, Multi Boot, DMI
Support for ACPI revision 1.0 specification
MEMORY

2 DDR DIMM Sockets and 2 DIMM sockets support (can not be used simultaneously)
Two 184-pin 2.5V DDR SDRAM (DDR266/200) or
Two 168-pin 3.3V SDRAM (PC133/PC100)
Maximum: 2GB (DDR SDRAM or SDRAM)

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.

ECS K7VTA3 motherboard Will start up, but i get no video. Also what AMD processor would anybody recommend to use for this board?


well it could be your ram faulty or if it is a grapics card that could be the same but if you look at your motherboard there are 3 pins beside the cmos batary if you see the 3 pins with a jumper on it just put the jumper on to the last 2 pins for 5 seconds and put it back and fire up this will reset all your bios
