Thread: Underclock?

    I have a little money burning a hole in my pocket, so I'm thinking of buying a mobo (Abit SE6 or Micro-Star 815e Pro) and a PIII 700. Until I get some more money, I want to use the boatload of 66mhz memory I have laying around. My question is, can I underclock the CPU to a 66mhz bus (or a little higher, if the mem can stand it) for the time being?

    Then, once I can get my hands on some PC150 memory, I'll turn up the dial and see what it'll really do.

    I can't think of a reason it won't work. Anyone else?

    That should work.

    I actually do that a lot. I usually clock my Pentium III 700 down to 466 MHz.

    It'll register as a Pentium III 466E.

    I do it when I'm don't need the power and when I'm trying to finish 3D Mark 2000 with the lowest possible score.
