Fastest cpu for the 8k5a2+ ?

I'ld like to upgrade my system by switching to a faster cpu, especially to get the advantage of the 166 fsb. I know the Bartons aren't supported on this mb. The T-breds go up to 2800+, but according to Epox the fastest cpu the 8K5a2+ can support is the 2600+ (ftp://ftp.epox.com/motherboard/suppo...pu-support.pdf ). Is this true, or can you run the 2700+ and the 2800+ T-bred's on the 8k5a2+? (Can't understand why you couldn't, since it's only a question of invoking the right multiplier for these 2 cpu's.)

Re: Fastest cpu for the 8k5a2+ ?

Well the list from the german EPoX page says that the 2800+ is supported.
http://www.epox.de/dl/design/CPU_list.pdf

I don't understand why the 3000+ Barton is not supported - multipliers, voltages and FSB shouldn't be the problem ??!!

Regards,

DPR

Thanks man you answered my question. I guess the document I linked to is just not up to date. As for the Barton's, that's a good question. The internals are bit different for that cpu, larger cache and all, but I can't see where that would be a problem.
