Hello all...

I wonder if anyone can help me with this. I have a K7S5A PRO (Socket A) board.The booklet that came with it (Page 12) says that the board can handle UP TO ATHLON XP 2600+ FSB 266.

However I also have a specs sheet that someone gave me that says that maximum processor speed is 2.8GHZ (XP2800).

I would like to put in a XP2800 chip. But I'm not sure if the board can handle it. Yes I do have a fan, and a 250Watt PSU.

I also have a CPU fan for XP2700+.

My question is, Can I install a XP2800 (2.8GHZ) cip? Can the board handle it?

Thansk for your help and advice.

There are an assortment of XP 2800+'s out there, but none of them are 2.8GHZ chips. So double check what you are reading. At the manufacturer's web site the top CPU listed as supported is a 2600+.

Oh ok I see. So you are saying that the highest processor is xp2600?

What is this chip?
AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton 2.08Ghz 333MHZ FSB 512 Cache processor.

And what size is a XP2600 chip?

You may know this, but AMD names their chips to indicate what they feel is their "equivalent" clock speed. For example the chip you mentioned (XP 2800+) has a clock speed of 2.08GHZ, but AMD believes that it is equivalent to a chip that runs at a speed of 2.8, so they call it a 2800.

You mentioned 2.8GHz in your first post did you mean 2.08?
