well... most processors can lower their fsb... *underclock to support lower fsb's...

but you could probably get more out of it by overclocking

in the bios... try to raise the multiplier or fsb... unless they are locked... you should be able to get higher speeds.. maybe even... lol.. the processors original speed... (or higher yet)

EDIT: some education...

I'll use my processor as an example...

my processor has an fsb of 133

my multiplier is 15

so... 15 x 133 = 1.9GHz

I made a mistake earlier stateing that my motherboard was 133/166

it is 100/133


if I switch the fsb jumper on my motherboard it will be:

15 x 100 = 1.5

thus running at only 1.5Ghz rather than normal (my processor is an amd athlon xp 2400+ default = 1.9Ghz)

but notice in my signature I have overclocked it by raising the fsb in the bios...

from 133 to 147 which forces my processor to run at 2.2Ghz
thus at 3200+ speeds by amd standards...

well... I hope that helps...
