Hmmm...discovered I have a once top of the range last of the Socket A/462 Athlon XP 3200+ which runs a 400MHz FSB, however I have paired it with 333MHz mobo/RAM & ATA HDD. Thing is 400MHz boards seem to be in short supply on eBay.

My question is:

Would running said chip at its native 400MHz with DDR400 RAM &, I'm guessing by age, a HDD of the first S-ATA standard result in a noticeable speed boost. Conversely, would under running at 333MHz (mobo/RAM) with a standard ATA HDD result in a noticable speed decrease? Infact, will it even run at 333MHz?

I did not do any research before making any of my purchases. The old board was a Via KT600-M chipset made by ECS. I'm thinking I'll need to stick with an ECS board so all the headers are the same, or is there a standard regardless of main board manufacturer?

New board is ECS KM400-M2 rated at 333MHz, will it be a noticeable performance hit?

Will only be used for browsing the net in all probability.

Infact, will it even run at 333MHz?


It might not even post, depends on the bios and voltage support, sometimes it will run at right multiplier but show unrecognized cpu.

Hey, is there anyway of telling what clock speed this Athlon 3200+ is without installing? IE. From the serial # alone?

Can you post the information you see on the CPU?
