I have a MSI K8T NEO 1.0 Mother board with an AMD Athlon 64 2Gig Processor (754 socket). I am trying to find out what the maximum chip my board can take as the cheapest upgrade at the moment. I have been to the AMD and MSI sites to try and identify what the maximum chip is that I can put into the board but can't really find it. Can anybody help, advise or tell me a simple site that I can use. Thanks in advance!
Quiller, Maj and Press Man thanks for the replies they are very useful. I see that the max I can go to on this board is an AMD 64 2800 which will give me a 2.4 gig system. I can do this for about £50 which will stave off the procurment of a new mother board bundle or building a new system till the spring/summer when it is usually cheaper. My next question would be how do you over clock a system? The system does have "Dynamic Overclocking Technology" could I improve on this?
I Have seen the maximum I can fit is a Athlon 64 3800 which gives me a 2.4gig system but looking throught the board manual and the utilities I have used "Cool'n'Quiet" which has allowed me to over clock my 2 gig chip to 2.36 gigs. I know there may be stability problems but I will see how it goes. Thanks to all for the inspiration to plug away at the problem.
