I could do with the motherboard model you have, It will give me an idea where the CPU frequency setting are (or someone else on the forum).

If you look yourself, It maybe where the FSB is set, it will be @ 133 change it to 100 and try it.

You could update the Bios as it's usually a good thing but, I dont think that's your problem.

From what I can remember about that M/B, you wont be able to under clock it as it detects everything automatically.

I would buy an Akasa 825 carnival cooler. They are cheap and Very good. Install that and see if it makes a difference. I'm sure it will.

Manually drop it to 133, this will reduce the speed of both your processor & ram thus, making it run cooler.

The CPU host frequency and the speed are the same thing.

Say you have a cpu that works at 1333Mhz, that would be Cpu host frequency of 133Mhz x 10 = 1333Mhz

Lowering the Fsb (host frequency) to 100Mhz would result in 100Mhz x 10 = 1000Mhz at machine running at 1ghz
