Subject pretty much says it all...

It's a standard A7V333 not an A7V333-X, and the PCB is rev. 1.01.
Thanks

No. Your board is limited to 266 Mhz FSB. The X version is 333Mhz, thus the
Sempron support.

Yes, but please see Sempron in link below before you buy one.

What makes you think that?

Semprons don't need support. Semprons are just Athlon XP's with a new name
and different default config. Having the board Report Sempron is just
cosmetic and has no affect on performance.

See Sempron in link below.

Out of the box the A&V333 which you are concerned about will only do
133(266)Mhz fsb. Any amount over that is an over clock. You can check the
Asus support site for bios releases that may support 166(333)Mhz.

Well, I went ahead and chanced it and it seems to work like a champ.

I'm running BIOS 1018 beta 1.

It automatically detected the correct voltage (1.6v), and set the FSB
to the correct setting (166). I thought I would have had to OC that
manually, but it detected it just fine.

The only thing and it is not a big deal at all, is that when you go and
right mouse click on "My Computer" and select properties, it shows the
CPU as an Athlon XP @ 1.5GHz, which is the correct speed, just on the
old Athlon's it would show you the PR rating, ie: 2200+.

Like I said, makes no different between showing the actual clock of the
CPU vs. the PR.

I'm very pleased with this, you can't beat it for $48!

It's showing you the right info. It is an Athlon XP @1500MHz, and as one
at 1500MHz, the PR rating would be an Athlon XP 1800+, not a 2200+. the
Athlon XP 2200+ has a default speed of 1800MHz.

Sure you can, easily.. $44 for an Athlon XP 1700+ which has a default of
1466MHz with a 133Mhz FSB. Just raise the default FSB to 166 and you now
have 1833MHz, an XP 2200+, or the exact same as the Sempron.2600+.
Socket A Sempron's are about the worst bang for the buck around. See
Sempron in link below.
