    I don't think that P4 processors work like that. I know with AMDs it is possible to sometimes just run the processor at a lower fsb speed but i think p4 processors are different. Why would you want to do that in the first place? You could get a good quality p4 board for about 50 - 80 bucks on newegg anyway.

    Just make sure you don't put a Prescott in there. If it can't even support a 800mhz FSB P4, then it's quite likely that the VRMs can't handle all the power Prescott pulls.

    It should. I have a 533FSB P4 in a 400FSB board and all I lost was core speed.
