    Old Timer Asus A7V will a AMD Athlon XP 2100 work w/ it?

    Hello its been quite sometime since I have been on the boards but I was going through my basement and found my old asus a7v and a xp 2100 AX2100DMT3C lying around in some old antistatic bags. Would this CPU work with the mobo?

    In my experience running newer socket A processors on the old boards...they probably will work, but won't have the name detected during the post screen, it just shows the speed. I believe I had a 2100+ tbird running in an A7V at one point...

    this would probably be of real help though. discussion on a tbred but a palomino should also work the same.
