The K7S5A only has a 266Mhz front side bus,so I beleive the best you can do
with that as far as I have seen,is a 2500+ with a 266 FSB.

Not really worth the effort to upgrade from where your at now.

Hello,

your motherboard can support up to xp 2600+ with the latest bios. If you go with the upgrade make sure you get the latest bios.

Not officially of course...The Cosmetic name provided at POST may not match what you have...


There have been a few questions about XP-M recognition with the K7S5A mother boards. I've compiled a speculative chart regarding how the XP-M CPU's will be recognized, This may not be totally accurate right now, but with enough people using these CPU's with the K7S5A, we can eventually fill out the chart with greater accuracy.

XP-M 3000+ -- ~2.2 GHz -- XP 2600+ DTR
XP-M 2800+ -- ~2.1 GHz -- XP 2400+ OR 2600+ DTR
XP-M 2600+ -- ~2.0 GHz -- XP 2400+ DTR
XP-M 2500+ -- ~1.8 GHz -- XP 2200+ DTR
XP-M 2400+ -- ~1.8 GHz -- XP 2200+ DTR
XP-M 2200+ -- ~1.6 GHz -- XP 2000+ DTR
XP-M 2000+ -- ~1.5 GHz -- XP 1800+ DTR
Latest bios...you'll want a Honey-X bios
