Will AMD sempron work on Asus A7V333 Athlon/AthlonXP/Duron mainboard?

It's just that. Will a "AMD Sempron 2800+ Boxed ScktA" work on my Asus A7V333 mainboard? Specs found on Asus site:

Processor Socket A for AMD®: ..... Athlon XP/ Athlon/ Duron 600MHz ~ 2GHz+


Just an easy one, I got this mainboard lying around somewhere, want to make a router / fileserver... Doesn't have to be that 2800+ processor, can also be a slower one - but I guess that depends on the BIOS.

Thanks!

It should work, since the board supports AthlonXP processors and the Sempron is just a Duron successor.

Tnx!

I've just read up on it, seems Sempron is made to be compatible with as much of existing hardware as possible...

I don't see support for any Duron processor over there? Does this mean that the processor isn't supporterd?

Sorry, for any 'Sepron' processor, not Duron.

I thought the Sempron was an AthlonXP successor / replacement?

BARF, sepmron.  Yea it will work, it has to be backwards compatable otherwise AMD would be stupid.

Have you tried it out yet? I have the same motherboard and the same issue. I'm low on cash so i'm worried. :)

But the FSB 266mhz means the processor would be underclocked. So you wouldn't get our moneys worth. But it should work. Athlon XP 2600+ (model 8) is the best way to go.

I bought an XP processor, Sempron will never be detected completely right by the released BIOS versions.

Was working as a charm, but a few days a go the end-user got a "system failed cpu test" voice POST message, just brought it in for RMA.

Wonder what cased it...

Anyhow, if you can get your hands on a Athlon XP, I suggest you get that for the A7V333.

Cheers!

Hm, sorry about it Callandor, but you must agree - I incorrectly gave you credit for the answer to this question.
People that look this up, may get confused...

Should I post this in the community support section?

Yes, if it's not right, have the answer changed.  I won't be around, so you'll have to take up the slack.
