Default mobo system bus compatibility

if the system bus speed on my mobo is supposed to be for 533 mhz cpu, is it possible to use a 400 mhz cpu instead?

i.e. i'm looking at this mobo here http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2....od_id=1037688#

but my cpu is 400 mhz fsb

Yeah I don't know about running a higher FSB, but like gaming freak said, either of those two things would probably happen, try googling it maybe.
