Default Overclocking Question

I am sick and tired of my CPU. I got screwed when buying a mobo... but anyway, until i can find a guy willing to sell me an old socketed p3, i am stuck at 700, so i decided to OC:

Well, for almost a year i had been running at 890MHz (7x127) at 1.8v (yes, i have a ghetto cpu, wont oc at default voltage even with copper heatsing)

Then i started to get instabilities.

I realized that i may have overstressed the PCI components. They were running at 42 MHz.

Anyway, the dividers on my mobo suck.


My question is this: Can I run my PCI bus at LESS than 33MHz?

Specifically, I can use a divider and run it at 31.75MHz, allowing me to keep a 900MHz oc.

1) What would happen if i did run at 31.75? Would it work? Would it be safe?


2) CAN ANYONE SELL ME A FASTER GOD DAMNED PENTIUM III???!?!?
