UNDERCLOCKING

By david_grant ·
I have DOS applications that need to run at 33 mhz or less. This software can not be upgrade!. Is there a way to underclock a HP pentium 133 mhz computer. It is getting harder and harder to find old DOS computers as spares. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

It all depends on how the MB sets the clock frequency and multiplier.
Look at the jumper setting information. Ideally, you want a clock of 33MHz, and a multiplier of 1X.

I don't know if you will be able to get as low as 33MHz though.

Anotherpossability is one of the tweeking programs that the over-clockers use.
It is referred to as rain, and is used to cool down an over-clocked cpu by slowing down the clock.
It is posted at some of the freeware sites, and most of the over-clocking sites.

If you need to keep this program running, keep an eye on these 2 sites for older hardware.
486 stuff is getting to be darn cheap.
