Upgrading ASUS A7V KT133 Tags: CPUs Asus Last response: September 3, 2009 6:58 PM in CPUs Share pkchips September 3, 2009 12:27:25 PM Hello all, I am not exactly an expert in this field so please bear with me... I have an old computer which runs too slowly for my liking, and so I was thinking of upgrading the specs. It is very old, running an AMD Duron 800 Mhz. I was wondering if my motherboard (VIA-KT133-<A7V>) supports something like the athlon xp 3200+? Also, where can I find a bios update? I couldn't seem to find anything on the ASUS website. Thanks for your help. More about : upgrading asus a7v kt133 festerovic a b à CPUs September 3, 2009 6:55:47 PM Yes the fastest socket 462 you can get is athlon xp 3200+. Search the asus site downloads for A7V133. The bios is there, not sure about compatibility. I will say this: Don't spend money on a new chip. If you can get a free one, it's worthwhile to swap, but don't buy anything. You can get a way way faster board and chip for under $70 nowadays. festerovic a b à CPUs September 3, 2009 6:58:40 PM Found it: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLan... Officially, it supports a ath xp 2100+ with the latest BIOS and PCB version 1.05 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
