i took the p3 back out right after running belarc and cpu-z.....didnt take a look at the memory tabs...figured they'd be the same..

but i will admit, speed-wise with programs and bootup was faster with the p3..but i honestly dont wanna take the risk of fryin my mobo or the chip itself or anything for that matter...cuz right now im broke as a no money for replacements lol

and nope..couldnt get into the bios to change any specific settings as to speeds etc...

I would just get Sandra and run the two CPU tests and the memory bandwidth tests.

Actually, PCmark would be a really good overall bench to check it out.

****, you won't fry anything
