I haven't seen it personally, but you may be able to try it and Underclock the CPU.

Underclcok? wouldn't this be overclock?

anyway, I'm planning to buy new cpu but not sure which one yet that's why i'm finiding out if xp1800+ can be run at 166mhz FSB.  The original FSB for xp1800+ is 133mhz.  Just wondering if cpu can handle 166mhz FSB.

Most likely wii not handle 166. Highest I've seen is 150 with special cooling, memory,etc.T

Hum, the new KT333 chipset offers 166mhz FSB and it's for socket A cpu's.  Now there must be some chip that can run at 166mhz FSB otherwise what's the point of having the support of 166mhz FSB.

Memory bus runs at 166(333), cpu core remains at 133(266).T

PS...can be set independently in most cases...but stii no processor at present for core frequency of 166 and I don't believe current cpus will be stable at >150. T

tmj883 is correct...I have a MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU mobo and the AthlonXP 1800+.  The memory bus speed runs at 333MHz (DDR, 166 in reality).  You can increase the FSB to push the CPU, but almost certainly not up to 166MHz.  Visit http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=Mjcw or www.overclockers.com.au among others to see what you can do with the VIA KT333 chipset.

Yes i'm aware of the memery bust speed that's why i'm planning to get pc2700.  The thing is I can't test the cpu because I haven't bought it yet.  I'm just finding out whether it can handle it.  I'll wait for a day or two for more input.  Thanks

Also take a look at http://pcdb.overclockers.com.au/

They have a database that people have put together.  There are a few others at www.tweakers.com.au and www.sysopt.com, and also www.overclockers.com (which seems to be down ATM).

The other thing you need to consider is your motherboard choice...there are many many articles at www.hardocp.com www.overclockers.com and any other page.  http://www.cluboverclocker.com/reviews/ also has plenty of info.

I have a feeling you're aware of these sites already or you wouldn't know about overclocking anyway.

I'm gonna have to give dog the point because apparently you can run a cpu at 180mhz FSB.  You've provided good links.
Thanks everyone.
