ASUS A7V Motherboard Support Athlon 1.33 266 CPU?

I now have a ASUS A7V Motherboard that I puchased around nine months ago.

What do I need to upgrade for this Motherboard to support an AMD Athlon Axia 1.33 266 FSB CPU which I just purchased from EBAY?

I already ordered a PC Power And Cooling System Silencer 400 Watt ATX Power Supply to replace my Silencer 275 Watt Power Supply.

I currently have PC-100 RAM in the ASUS Motherboard, so I assume that I need some PC-133 RAM to support the AMD Athlon 1.33 266 FSB CPU.

  1. That motherboard you have does not support 266mhz fsb.

  2. How will my AMD Athlon Axia 1.33 266 FSB Suffer from the ASUS A7V Motherboard?

    Does the CPU then run at 200 instead?

    What other changes do I need to do on the Motherboard to support the Athlon 1.33 266 FSB CPU?

  3. it may run in theory if you are VERY savvy about your settings (i.e. perfect voltage) but I would not reccommend it... for another thing your multiplier will be off as your running a 266 bus.

    better to invest in a decent MSI or Epox etc KT133A mainboard.
