    PLEASE HELP. SYSTEM DOWN.
    I had a fan failure thus a burned out processor Athlon 1 Ghz on a ASUS A7V MB.
    I was able to find a Athlon 1.33 with 266FSB to replace the CPU.
    MB supports up to 1.4Ghz processor but only has 200FSB.
    Can I use this CPU on the board anyway?

    Yes, but it will be clocked down to the lower speed. I don't recall if that motherboard can do 133, but it might be worth a shot to at least try it out. Worst case will be having to reset the CMOS values and set it up fresh again.

    Nope, it can't do 133MHz. With the KT133 chipset, the most you can hope for is 110MHz or so, maybe a little higher.

    You can use it, but you might need a BIOS update.
