hi guys

im using a a7n266 whit a atlon 2000+ and im not to happy whit it anymore. i wanted to upgrade to a barton 2500+ and was wandering if i have any chance to get this CPU runing in my mobo. im know i cant use 333 mhz in this board but my bios at least has a option to use 158 mhz FSB. and sins i heard the barton CPUs are not "locked" i could maby use 12*158=1896 or someting simular. so anybody know if this might work or if i have to buy a new mobo 2.

According to Asus you can't use a Barton 2500 as it is a 333 FSB, but you could use a Xp2600 as it is 266 FSB...

No problem, the A7N266 + Barton will work.
Somebody on a german forum tested this combination and it works.
Use newest Bios, and set FSB at Bios to 166Mhz.
