I did notice that a question was asked about overclocking a 1.4GB Athlon so can assume it will take at least that. What speed CPU were you thinking of using?

2000 or faster but realy need to know what core type it will suport

Just had a look on the AMD site for you and the fastest CPU recommended for your board is:

AMD Athlon XP 1900+ (266 FSB) Model 6. Regards. j.

If you flash the BIOS the board will take up to a 2600+ XP

You need to be very careful and double check your version of board! There are 4 different versions, as below.


K7S5A V 3.1

K7S5A Pro V5.1

K7S5A V1.0
