My old K7s5a is lying around and I wanted to replace my file-server ( celeron 600 ) with this motherboard and TBred-B 1700+.
Because of power consumption I wanted to underclock this CPU to 800-900MHz with lowered Vcore. This board used to be overclocking one ( VCore and multiplier mod was done), but now I want to go in another direction
Is it possible?

it's working. I modified L11 bridges for default core voltage 1.1V. It didn't wake up on such love voltage ( before I set it to 11x100Mhz ) so I raised it to 1.2V ( thanks to vcore mod ) and it is working perfectly. I will play a little bit more to find perfect combination
quote: Another important consideration is that power consumption gets reduced by voltage not in a linear way (as does with frequency), but by its a squared. So undervolting is much more dramatic in reducing power than lowering the clock frequency.
