MSI-6330 and 1.4GHz DDR Athlon

Hi

I have MSI-6330 mother board (VIA KT-133 chipset).
It supports atleast 1.4GHz cpus. However I was wondering
if it was possible to put a cpu which supports DDR memory.

There two types of Athlon CPUs out there, conventional
socket A cpus which work with SDRAM memory and those newer
Athlons that support DDR SDRAM memory. So can one put DDR
Athlon into one of those old plain SDRAM mother boards?

  1. No. The kt133 chipset runs at 100 fsb (for 200 athlons). All xp athlons run at 133 fsb, so even with a bios upgrade, an xp would still run underclocked.
  2. It can be done yes. Would I advise it? NO. Check with your MSI to see waht bios updates are available. Your best bet might be a morgan core DURON for this board.

    It's not what they tell you, its what they don't tell you!
