My MSI 5136 motherboard on paper said it supported
cyrix P166+ CPU. It supports voltages OK.
It supports up to a P200.
As P233 or P200Mhz MMX are hard to get in Oz,
i thought i would get a Cryix MII 333 and underclock
it at 200Mhz.
AMI BIOS boots but i get 25% of the performance
of my P166 at 200Mz !!
Award will not boot.
>> What are the issues ?
>> can i fix the situation with correct settings
via something like TWEAKBIOS ??
If the board supports a Cyrix at 133, why not at 200 ??

Any info appreciated.
