Fast CPU, Slow Motherboard

  penny 02:37 07 Jul 03

Well faster than the 800 Duron I am using at the moment. The problem is that when I bought a 2000+ Athon, I did not realise my Motherboard could only handle up to a 1200mhz CPU.What would happen if I went ahead and fitted the 2000 Athlon, would it blow up, work at 1200 mhz, or not work at all? Would like some helpful info before I try. Thanks, Penny
