  1. Can a (SOYO) SY-K7VTA-B (200 MHz Host Bus Speed) and a 1.3 GHz 266 Athlon work together?
    Thanks :)

    I dont see why it wouldnt work. It chip would just be downclocked to the 200mhz bus.

    I agree also, however, I was doing some testing and underclocked my 1.4 XP and it wouldnt work at all. No boot, no post, no anything...not until I set it back to 133.....

    Uncleel is right - it doesn’t like it at all.
