Max processor for a Asusu A7V8X mobo

Hello all,

I am trying to find out if my old mobo an Asus A7V8X will handle a dual core 3.0ghz process. It currently has a AMD Athalon 1.8ghz. I am pretty sure all bios and such are set to what was loaded off the provided install CD.

I can assembly a PC with no issue but I am not savoy with most of the interworking such as BIOS and flashing the firmware.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

    This is the list of all processor supported by your mobo. You can't put a X2 on your mobo.
  2. Does x2= dual core?

    And a big thank you for finding that link for me. I may have been to it but for whatever reason did not notice that tab.
  3. Yes, for AMD processors X2= dual core processor.
  4. Again because I am not very savoy with component compatibility would this be a good fit and nice upgrade to my current AmD Athelon 1.8ghz processor?

    AMD Athlon 64 LE-1640 Lima 2.7GHz Socket AM2 45W Single-Core Processor

    Thanks again in advance for your speedy reply and assistance.
  5. ^No, Isn't supported.
  6. I searched New Egg and Tiger Direct as well as google and am haveing no luck as of yet located a process that matches any of the larger ones on the list. Would you have any retailers in mind that I might search for a compatible processor? I am trying to find one that is no smaller then 2.7ghz if available and prefer a 3.0.

    I will keep searching.

    Sorry men, but the supported processor are too old and is really dificult find one. The socket supported by the mobo was discontinued for AMD.
