133 FSB Slot1 P3 on 100 FSB 440GX possible?

Discussion in 'Intel' started by Ghazan Haider, Dec 1, 2003.

  1. The subject asks it all. I have a new VA Linux 1000 with a 82440GX
    chipset and two slot 1 slots. eBay tells me among Pentium IIIs, 133
    FSB chips are cheaper. I'm just wondering what will happen if anyone
    else here has tried running 133FSB chips underclocked to 100. I
    understand the processors core clock will also decrease by the same
    ratio.. its still cheaper.

    Or does it fry the whole thing?

    Underclocking a CPU does nothing bad except running it slower.
