View Full Version : Processor and Motherboard support

Is there a tidy way of finding out the limit of a Motherboard's capacity in terms of processor speed/type etc? For example, I would like to buy a GIGABYTE 6VXC7-4X-P m/board. If the manual does not specify, how do I know what speed of processor I am limited to? I have checked www.dfi.com - any suggestions?

hi Jeff,

the gigabye web page reports it has a maximum multiplier of 9.5, and while it supports a FSB of 150, it would be safe to say it's maximum CPU speed would be 1.2Ghz (133x9.5)

Don't forget that this particular motherboard is a socket 370 that doesn't support the new Piii's, so the actual maximum (limited by available cpu) is actually 1Ghz.
If you are looking for an extremely upgradable motherboard try the abit VH6T http://www.abit.com.tw/ or the Gigabyte 6OXET http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/
