    I got a adm cpu that has a speed several hundreds mhert highter than the
    motherboard than support. Can I still suck the higher speed cpu into socket
    A of a motherboard that supports a cpu speed less than it? The motherboard
    is amptron and it supports a cpu speed only of a duron 900mhert, but I got a
    duron 1.6ghert.

    Will my entire pc go smoking if I do that? Or will it work but the cpu will
    run at the highest speed the mb can support? Anyone have ever done this?

    Thank You.
