I am interested in upgrading my current pc set up to include a 1.4 GHz Athlon Thunderbird processor. My current motherboard is an Abit KT7A-RAID. I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the mobo & whether or not it would support the chip below?
AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.4GHz 266MHz FSB Socket A PGA Processor - Version Stepping AYHJA(Requires fan that supports 1.4GHz processor)
I know the KT7A-RAID is supposed to accept up to a 1.4 GHz processor, but I found the following on the Abit website:
"KT7 / KT7-RAID / KT7A / KT7A-RAID / KT7E only support 1.4G(100) Athlon with L1 bridges disconnected. Check L1 before you buy a CPU please!"
and I wanted to make sure the CPU would work in my set up before I purchased it. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
