North Bridge: VIA VT8363(A) Apollo KT133(A)
Motherboard ID 10/07/2000-8363-686A-6A6LMB09C-00
Motherboard Name Biostar M7VKA/M7VKB/M7VKD / Procomp BVK2A
Award BIOS Type Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Award BIOS Message K1M1006
Ran BiosAgent Plus for confirmation, it gave the same ID number.
Currently, it's running an AMD Duron 700 Mhz CPU. I've got a Duron 1200 Mhz I want to put in instead. From the research I've done, I think this will work, and without a BIOS update - is this correct? (This is the main thing I want to know).
The only BIOS update Biostar has for the M7VKA doesn't appear to contain anything that applies.
Also, I'm wondering about this chipset. Everest says it's a KT133A, instead of the KT133 that is normally in the M7VKA; CPU-Z and Fresh Diagnose say the same. Could that be right? Could it run faster CPUs that require a 266 Mhz FSB? Are there other BIOS updates it would accept?
