just ordered this for my abit kr7a with raid MB off of a recommendation.
Got the one with 35w since 45watts were all sold out. Found out after i
ordered the cpu that my MB doesn't support the barton core. Should I be
ready to ship it back? Thanks for the help. I am such a impluse buyer its
sad :*(

Don't be sad, you may be in luck. Your MOBO does support barton
core It can be set to 2000MHz [20x100]

Ask for Wes Newell, his site posted below, your lucky - not sad

Well on my motherboard I have a option for 12.5 multiplier 13.0 and over 13.
I am not sure how I'll be able to get 20x100 on it. Also my RAM is PC2100
(2 512 sticks of Kingston 2.5 latency) so won't that hinder how high I can
go on my FSB. My friend told me PC2100 can only go to like 166 (number
might be high as he told me 2 years ago). Any help or input will be much
appreciated. You guys have all been very helpful.

Order a Abit NF7-S board with that XP/M CPU. Mine ( 35wt ) runs @ 11.5x220 =
2.4GHz !

Temps are : 40 cel idel / 48 load. Get yourself some ( 1GB )PC3200 duel
channel to go with and I'll bet you'll get 2.4GHz as well.

Your friend is right about your DDR2100 memory. Be sure to check that the
cas latency is set to 3.0 and up the other timings at trp 4, trcd 4, tras
11. The SPD chip on the memory may auto to cas 3.0 at 166Mhz but the other
timings will be something like 3 3 7 and they really need to be 4 4 11 for
stability. The max for my micron DDR2100 is 173Mhz at cas 3.0 4 3 11. I
don't believe that the PCI bus is locked so about 140Mhz may be the max if
you don't want to destroy something on the south bridge (HD, PCI card, sound
chip). You need to find out what the PCI and APG bus speeds are at 166Mhz.
Not sure if the Abit KR7A-RAID MB will support the Barton core. You might
try it and see before sending it back. Wes has allot of experience with
this board he would know if it will support the Barton core in some fashion.

PC2100 ram is rated at 133MHz, not 166Mhz, but that doesn't matter to you
since your FSB is only 133Mhz too. When you get the 2400+ XP-M, Just plug
it in and see what happensBest guess is that it will do the same as an
unlocked 2400+ XP and boot at 20x100 for 2000MHz.. If you want to
understand all this read the link below. i think it covers all of it. If
you still have a question afterwards, ask.

Doesn't the KR7A-RAID board have an adjustable FSB frequency of 100-200 Mhz
and will support DDR2700 Ram?

It only officially supports 133Mhz. The highest clock divider is 4, so
even if you st the FSB to 166, it won't work, much less 200. I don't know
what the ram settings will go to but it doesn't matter. Officially it only
supports PC2100. This will be the same for any board with the KT266/A
chipset.

Thanks, that is kinda what I thought. It's been a long time since I have
worked on a motherboard with the KT266/A chip set.
The last one I worked on was a Gigabyte board (GA-7VTX I think) and that was
over a year ago.
