    Hi all,

    I have a Gigabyte GA-71XE4 mobo, with a Duron 800Mhz CPU which has a FSB of

    I would like to upgrade the CPU, looking at Athlon 1.4Gb

    My question is, what happens if I put a in a CPU with FSB of 266?

    According to the website the CPUs with 266FSB are not applicable. Does this
    they wont work or that they just havent been tested with the mobo? see

    4. Wont bother seems to be the only option with this mobo/cpu. Mobo is self
    sensing, bios doesnt support changing the multiplier. Ill just stick to
    uping from 100 to 115Mhz clock cycle.

    It runs stable and it does what I want, I ll leave it alone for know.
    Maybe if I can get hold of an other mobo cheap/free I may try then.

    You're thinking of the original Slot A Athlons.
