You may not believe me but...
...I am actually running a KT4V with a VIA KT400 chipset with a 1.1Ghz Duron. Right now, typing this, with 2.2GB Ram running Windows 7 Ultimate.
Here's the thing, I've overclocked this Duron with limited performance increases because I'm only stable up to 1.6Ghx with a 166Mhx FSB.
So, I wanna drop an AMD Athlon XP Barton 3200 in it, in fact I'm about to pull the plug on one but I want to know what you all think.
I've been trolling this site for over a year and signed up now that I'm done with Windows XP and want to max this old Socket A.
Is my chipset going to cause me troubles running this CPU? I'm also confused be the User's guide, it says I can only install ONE DDR400 DIMM? I have 3 DIMM slots. Anyways, I put a second GIG DIMM in, using DDR333. Now my DRAM is clocked at 333mhz, will the 400/200mhz CPU cause any slow downs or failures?
Am I going to have to find Drivers for my Motherboard if I change it?
I've never done this before and I need to know what I am facing. Seems to me like a straight forward swap but, how often is that actually true?
Thanks, in advance!
