Can you run an XP 1700 CPU on a 200mhz FSB?

I know it will run slower but I just thought I'd double check. Because if you put FSB wrong in a 266FSB Mobo it just shows the slower speed. So surely the cpu will just run slower. I'm just building a crappy lil pc out of spare bits (can u tell :D ) to play videos for my daughter. The chipset is even worse, dirty Sis crap. Somebody agree and I'll stick it together now. Cheers guys.

yeh quite often when i inspect the new builds the 200fsb jumper has been left on. sometimes it can cause blue screens, not often.

did that once to a friend's comp to se if a "low heat/noise" setup would be a good option. like, if he didn't plan on playing games, he could boot up and change the fsb to 200mhz and disable a couple fans via an external witch, and be in "quiet" mode. but i believe i encountered some problems with this. i don't remember what, exactly. i think windows was either unstable or wouldn't even load. :huh:

worth a try, though.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
