    k7s5a v1.x or v3.x

    What is the version number? 2 links to the ECS website. The first is for v1.x (didn't say what cpu speed is supported) and the second is for v3.x

    That's a start. Oh, yeah, what is your bios version? Faster cpu speeds were added in bios upgrades. I'll rummage around and see if I can find anything I might have on this computer on the bios.
