Hello,

I'm trying to get my Athlon 1333 running at 1333, not 1000 MHz as is the default setting after a CMOS reset.
I'm using an ABIT KT7A motherboard, KINGMAX PC133 256MB SDRAM and an Athlon-C 1333...
After resetting the CMOS, multiplier is set to deafult 10x, which is OK,
and bus speed 100 MHz, which is an understandable default... But when I try to set the FSB to 133/266 MHz, I can't boot (not even the BIOS comes up). Actually, no setting with 133/266 MHz, like 1000 MHz CPU frequence/133 bus speed seems to work...

Any idea how to solve this problem? Thank you so much...

Q: Does ABIT KG7 / KT7A / KT7E mainboard support AMD Athlon XP processors?

A: Statement: ABIT KG7 / KG7-RAID mainboard is hardware compatible (ready) and can support AMD Athlon XP processor via BIOS update.
ABIT KT7A / KT7A-RAID V1.3 mainboard is hardware compatible (ready) and can support AMD Athlon XP processor via BIOS update.
ABIT KT7 / KT7-RAID / KT7E all version and KT7A/KT7A-RAID V1.0/1.1/1.2 cannot support AMD Athlon XP processor.
1.ABIT has release BIOS for KG7 and KT7A V1.3 to patch the CPU model name. If user did not upgrade to the latest bios, users can also manually set the suitable working frequency for AMD Athlon XP processors in SoftMenu BIOS.
AMD Athlon XP Processors SoftMenu III Setup -> CPU Operating Speed ->User Define
With above setting users can use AMD Athlon XP processors flawlessly. The incorrect CPU information during POST can be fix via BIOS update.
2.As for KT7 and KT7A old version mainboards, which launched earlier than AMD Athlon XP processors, they are not hardware compatible with new CPU.
