You should check with the motherboard manufacturer to see what Athlon CPU's are supported by your board the pin configuration is the same Duron/Athlon/AthlonXP but the frontside bus can vary 200/266/333, this can be set in the BIOS to get the CPU recognised at its correct speed 100/133/166. Enjoy. Wossie.

yes, as wossie says you will have to check your mobo manual to see if the board will take will physicaly fit in but the board probably won't run it.a year agio i bought an msi mobo (cost £95)shop told me it would take all the new cpu's.recently i wanted to update the cpu (old one being a duron 750)the largest i could fit in was a duron 1400.needles to say that shop has now closed down(good)
