    Can Athlon 266 FSB's happily run at 200 FSB?

    Can Athlon 266 MHz happily run at 100 FSB?

    Rather than the 133 FSB they're designd to.



    Just I'm having problems running a motherboard at the higher FSB, so is it OK to leave it 'Underclocking'?

    133 = 266DDR

    yes its fine to underclock them, you will loose some performace though.

    Up the multi if you can to compensate.

    I ran an Athlon 1.4GHz (266MHz FSB) CPU at 10.5x100MHz for ages. It'll run no probs, but won't be as fast.
