[size=5][b]I have an Epox 8K7A+ mobo, and I've been running a 1.4 ghz AMD Athlon Thunderbird CPU for 3 years. I believe my CPU is bad, and want to replace it. My FSB is 266. Now, I'm looking at a 2.4 ghz CPU with the same 266 FSB. Can I use this higher speed CPU--or should I stick with the 1.4 ghz size? Does it matter? :whistling:

According to reviews I've read your mobo is compatible with all Socket-A AMD Duron and Athlon processors. If you fit a faster one than you have now you will need to go into BIOS settings as the next step, from where you can set it's stated clock speed, otherwise it will simply run at the same speed as the old one.
