weird idea for performance boost, lower multi, raise fsb
I know, confusing title... but here is my idea:
If you take a 333 capable motherboard and an AthlonXP, unlock the AthlonXP and LOWER the multiplier, but in turn increase the FSB to 166/166, would you see a great performance boost because of the faster data rate?
AthlonXP 1600 = 133 x 10.5 = 1400mhz
unlocked 1600 = 166 x 8.5 = 1411mhz
I figured the advantage of this is you don't overheat the AthlonXP nor do you require extra equipment like water cooling, yet you get the benefits of a faster bus, yes?
What do you all think?
