You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.

    if you have the money, I would recommend upgrading your motherboard to a AM2 socket, and then you can upgrade your processor and ram cheaper..

    A good AM2 motherboard will run around $80-$220 CAN

    yes, it will be safe for your motherboard.. If you are really hesitant, the AMD Athlon (without the XP) are the most compatible. The only thing that you may need to do it buy a better power supply, and make sure you have plenty of fans. Also, make sure the CPU that you buy comes with a heatsink made for it (most will have one included in the box)...

    That is why I suggested a new motherboard, as you will find more compatible and readily available CPU's for the newer mobo's.

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 09, 2008

    Should have gone for a motherboard with AM2 or pentium equivilant. You cannot use dual-core in that motherboard, so you are limited to a MAX Pentium III...

    This is probably the highest you can use:

    Family Intel Pentium III
    Part number RK80530PZ017256
    RK80530PZ017256 s-specs QLL1 SL64W SL6HR
    RK80530PZ01725E s-spec SL64W
    Frequency (MHz) 1400
    Bus speed (MHz) ? 133
    Clock multiplier ? 10.5
    Package 370-pin Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array with heatspreader (FC-PGA2)
    1.95" x 1.95" (4.95 cm x 4.95 cm)
    Socket Socket 370

    Architecture / Microarchitecture
    Processor core Tualatin
    Manufacturing process 0.13 micron
    Data width 32 bit
    Floating Point Unit Integrated
    Level 1 cache size ? 16 KB instruction cache
    16 KB data cache
    Level 2 cache size ? Full-speed on-die 8-way set associative 256 KB cache
    Multiprocessing Uni-processor
    Features MMX technology
    SSE instructions

    You may be able to find one of these more easily:

    Intel Pentium III 1GHz 133MHz 256K FCPGA CPU

    Unfotunately, Pentium 3 is pretty much phased out.. Even the Pentium 4's are going out the window...

    Any way you can change the motherboard for another one? (you will find cheaper chips as well for a newer motherboard)

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 09, 2008

    I think you were better off with the older motherboard as it uses AMD and has better compatibility...

    The motherboard you just bought is pretty much out-dated...

Upgrade the 1.6GHz CPU on L7VMM2 Motherboard

ECS Support > L7VMM2 motherboard > Main Support page,

Click on the CPU tab.

(Features / Specification / Download / Support / FAQ / CPU / etc)

Will support Up To an AMD Athlon XP 2600+,

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 )

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.

Want to upgrade CPU and Ram on ASUS A7V-ML motherboard

Download a small utility called CPUID from or use this direct download link "". Using this utility you can analyze your system hardware statistics and also you can find the RAM capacity supported in your system along with various other RAM parameters. It will also show you the available free RAM slots to use, as well. I hope this is useful to you.

CPU upgrade

Your motherboard has a good support for various Processors. If you want to go for the latest then you can go for Palamino core Athlon 4.Its compatible all the KV7 series boards but all you have to check is "Till WHAT clock speed can your board support?" .

Upgrading processor to Duron 1.4GHz

well older mother board cant handle a higher CPU processor, you have to make sure you have ALL the jumper properly set for the CPU, also the memory on the motherboard should be for that motherboard. try not to OC the motherboard as it will fry it.

Also check the motherboard for any Blown capacitor. for the MB to scream bloody murder something is definately wrong.

you could check the website of asus and look under ARCHIVE or DISCONTINUED motherboard. to find drivers and manuals for the motherboard you have unless you have them

also make sure the motherboard can actully take a higher processor.

Thermal grease is always good its help alot, just dont over do the grease applications. as ive seen pasta made out of thermal grease cpu's

Good luck

K7VT2 with a AMD Duron 1.30 GHz CPU.

Depends on which AMD processor you would use. If Duron you could go to 1.8Ghz. If you use Athlon XP you could go to 3200+. Athlon MP 2.1Ghz and regular Athlon 1.4Ghz.
