This computer is pretty old now, but it still works great. I want to underclock the CPU (FSB or Multiplier) during a game I play, but not through BIOS as I will only do it during the game. It has nothing to do with being able to run the game or anything, it's an advantage for this particular game is all. I have tried EasyTune 5 & 6. 6 would not open up at all (no message) and 5 worked the first few times but now REBOOTS my computer when opened. I've also tried using nTune. Both did not seem to affect anything.

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 2800+
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-K8NS
- Chipset: nForce 3-250
BIOS: Award Modular 6 (F10)

Thanks!

how far are you underclocking it.
i would think there is a lower limit on a 64 bit architecture.

I went down to around 900-910mhz from 1872ish. There was nothing noticeably different except for the crash when I went beyond that (probably my limit since the multiplier is 9).

probably unless you can clock your fsb down to like 66 but your memory might start throwing fits
