Intel and amd chips have not been interchangeable for over 10 years. unless this is an antique computer, it will not work.

Ms 6367 ver 1 0


1) The MSI ms-6367 version 1.0 motherboard, was made especiallly for HP desktop computers.
(MicroStar International)


It is not an MSI -> O.E.M motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)
Therefore, ONLY HP would have a BIOS update for this board, and not MSI..........


2) The original Processors used were AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Maximum frequency rate, (Excuse me, 'Speed'), is 1.67GigaHertz.
(1.67GHz)
Front Side Bus frequency rate is 266MegaHertz.
(FSB = 266MHz)

You are trying to use an AMD 'Sempy' processor, that has an FSB of 333MHz.
This = No.

Why?

Because, even if you could somehow boost the FSB up to 333MHz, your ram memory would not work anymore, and your expansions slots. (i.e., PCI, AGP, etc)

(Change Voltage for processor {CPU}, or change Multiplier; in BIOS Setup utility. This would change the FSB)

Ram memory typically operates at Half of the processor's FSB.

3) I realize all you may have around is a Sempron, but let me post some facts;

A) The AMD Sempron, and the Intel Celeron are BUDGET processors. Also known as Starter processors.......
Why?

Because both have less Cache, than per se a comparable AMD Athlon XP processor, or Intel Pentium 4 processor.

(AMD Athlon XP compared to AMD Sempron;
Intel Pentium 4 compared to Intel Celeron)

What is Cache for a processor?
It is a small memory area for the Processor, and operates at the same frequency rate, ('Speed'), as the Processor.
Therefore it is the first memory area the Processor accesses.

[Ram Memory is next, then the Harddrive.
Mechanical harddrive, or Solid State.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/computer-hard-drives-disks-channel.htm ]

A crude example if I may;

You are writing a thesis for college.
You find as you go along, that you need some additional information.
Where is it?
Down in the basement, in a box of books, last book on the bottom.
Oh, and there is NO basement light........

Down you go, flashlight in hand. Dig through the box of books, and retrieve the book you desire.
Now back up the steps, and open the book to the page you want.

OR,

You press a few keys on the computer keyboard in front of you, and have your needed info in seconds........

Less Cache = Basement scenario
More Cache = Computer scenario

I would drill a hole through that 'Sempy' processor, and make it into a necklace. (Wouldn't wear it though! lol!)

Jus sayin'.

Post additional questions, or comments in a Comment.

No... Absolutely not.

GD8 motherboard


The GD8 mobo spec says that the bopard is only compatible with P4 and Celeron D processors so no you cant swap it! Generally the Athlon 1800+ is a better processor but it depends on the mobo, BIOS, RAM setup etc.

HOW CAN I TELL IF IT IS EQUAL TO A P 4


A motherboard is not equal to a CPU. However, if you're wondering if it is compatible, you can check the CPU compatability chart ... hang on, I'll get it.

Negative, it does not work with a P4. It uses AMD chips, specifically:
AMD Athlon XP/Athlon/Duron CPU
Socket A
