Compatible Processors for A7V8X-LA / Kelut-GL6E

I have an a720n Desktop and need a replacement processor.  The motherboard specifications sheet only shows two compatible processors:

  • Athlon XP 3200+ Barton Processor (2.20 GHz, 400MHz)
  • Athlon XP 2700+ Thoroughbred Processor (2.16GHz, 333MHz)

 

 

 

Someone I know has a Sempron 3300+ SDA3300DKV4E Socket A (462) that I could get.  I am wondering if this would work being the same socket, or do I need to purchase one of the listed processors above. 

 

 Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light for me.

Hi,

The two processors that are listed are the only processors that are guaranteed to be compatible with your motherboard. The custom HP BIOS is unlikely to have support for any other processor. Plug in other than those two and you are likely to get the "incompatible CPU" error message and an inability to boot into windows,
