Does your motherboard support a 333Mhz FSB ?

I have the same board and CPU as yourself. Just had a look at the website for details of board, these are posted below. I asked the same question of my local shop some time back, they are of the opinion that the fastest CPU would be a 2200XP.But it does mention 333 in the board spec. Maybe someone can advise further. j.

Just been to the tech. help of AMD website, and the following is what they say. Hope it is of some help to you.

2100xp 266 model 6 is the fastest CPU that AMD recommend with the K7S6A Motherboard.

The 333 mentioned for this board refers to its support for ddr ram according to the specs on ebuyer click here it only supports 100/133 FSB.

Seems 2600+[266fsb] is the fastest it will use with latest bios[and ver 1.0a board]
The 333 refers to the memory it can take ie PC2700

Thanks for all your help.

It can be updated by flashing BIOS to latest version and it supports 333mz memory

  woodchip 16:35 26 Aug 03

It does not support FSB 333 but will overclock to that

This board will not run the Athlon Barton
