Simple math my friend, from 400 to 533, what is the perectage increase in fsb? That is the same percentage increase in CPU speed.
1.7 yields 2.26, 1.8 yields 2.4 and 2.0 should yield 2.66 if you can find the right chip. My super chip...
It is risky, but if you're feeling lucky and put a blindfold on then it won't hurt... much.
Me personally, I wouldn't do it. But if I was saddened enough that my pretty 7800 was lying there, dead, I just might.
But since I don't want...
Simple, a normal desktop system also stops the POST when it doesn't detect a working videocard (well, depending on the system and the bios settings obviously).
Maybe want to try a hot swap? (works for bios chips)
I was hoping to be able to use it thru the internal speakers, just to reduce the CPU overhead of the onboard sound (= more FPS). Oh, well. Thanks for checking!
That's exactly the reason I bought it. I was...
