MSI K7T Turbo2 No Manual

Hi have bought a secondhand pc with this motherboard and pulled out the 1000mg AMD and putting in an AMD 1800 but I have no manual. I do not know the settings/ jumpers about what to change and how much needs changing in the bios to get this to run properly.
I am running this with XP and 3x 256 sticks of 133 ram with a 64 mg graphics card it should run ok but does not identify the CPU properly stops with the CPU showing 1000mg not the 1800 I have.
Do you have any ideas please on how get this up and running?

    Je rencontre un problème avec une carte mère KT7 Turbo2 (MS-6330 V5.0):

    Avec un CPU DURON 1GHZ: OK (affichage 1000MHz

    Avec un CPU ATHLON 1600 ou 1700:: à la mise sous tension: affichage 1050MHz??

    Avez-vous une solution?

    Je serais intéressé par la doc (strapping) de cette carte mère)

    Merci beaucoup, Olivier

Bonjour à tous,

With your help, i found manual and fixed Athlon 1600 detection problem on K7T Turbo2 motherboard.
After setting J17 to "open" (FSB=133MHz), CPU speed is now good, and the motherboard run fine.

Un grand merci,

Hi, click on this MSI link which will open to the motherboard
K7T Turbo 2 (MS-6330 v5.0). Links for, Bios download, user manual & FAQ is listed at the top of the page in the blue in colored bar.
You can run up to 1800 but it must be the AMD Athlon XP (Palomino, Socket A) up to 1800+

What motherboard will replace a msi k7t turbo2?

This is an obsolete part; as such, you will have a hard time finding it at any retailer, whether brick and mortar or online. However, all hope is not lost-try E-bay

You will have to look for a board that supports S-Dram memory, because that is what your MSI K7T Turbo2 uses.

My advice would be to skip this entirely; I would replace the whole board/CPU setup, and pick up some memory. You can get an Athlon II quad core and mobo for $165.98 USD (Asus /AMD). Pick up 2 GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM for $56

and you essentially have a whole new system for $222

Just my opinion on this-I don't think that spending the amount of cash you would have to in order to replace an obsolete board is worth it.

You might try this, instead:
AMD Athlon II x2 Regor (2.8 Ghz, dual core) @ 56.99

ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD mobo @ 59.99

Total $174.97 + shipping USD

Given you 3 ways to go and my advice-good luck!!

Crucial 2 GB Ballistix 240 pin DDR3 1600 Memory for $57.99

I had a old pc i change de board but didnt finish plugging all the wiring .now i cant remenber where the small wire for the cd where it s goes on the board

Hi there.
I have no idea why manufacturers still put these leads in the boards because they really don't serve much purpose.
I would leave it out, but if you want to plug it in look close at the motherboard near the I/O cover (rear USB's) for a black socket with 4 pins, it should be marked CD1, that's where the lead goes.

Good luck

Never saw this B4.......

it sounds like the ram is acting up. easiest solution is to remove the ram make sure no dust and crap has built up on the ram and the ram sockets.
