RE: [OT] jumper for CPU Host Clock
Well Robert, it is and it isn't. Some boards run Memory and FSB on the same
speed no matter what you do. The newer ones can asynchronously run the
Memory and FSB on different speeds. AFAIK the motherboards with a jumper do
not allow this asynchronous mode of operation. There probably are exceptions
to this. Also, in this case it really doesn't matter, jh is using PC133 ram
so he's safe (wich he was asking)
All depends on the chipset you're using really :)

Sorry, this is wrong. FSB and memory can run at different clocks.

The 700 Mhz was only available for 100 Mhz FSB afaik. So set it to 100 Mhz.
The newest Athlons are available for 100 and 133, that's why it says
reserved. Don't overclock the FSB unless you know what you're doing.
You can still use 133 Mhz memory with 133 Mhz memory clock.
