I wonder, why would anyone reduce the performance of a cpu? Are there advantages in stability or cooling?

No actually he didn't do it intentionally, he has a motherboard that doesn't allow the clock to be set manually and for some reason after a cmos reset it defaulted to a 100 mhz bus speed instead of 133 and he can't find a way to set it to 133 with the crippled bios.

getting extremely high performance ram and other hardware that can "virtually" access/process data at some incredible speeds is usually meaningless - thats cuz each processor has some number of data it can process in the given amount of time, and getting ram that performs at lets say 1000MHz *lolz* will not give you a performance jump if you were using ram that performs at lets say 400MHz

*just an example

Naturally, all this tweaking has its price: the default configuration of the Area-51 ALX, with 3.8GHz, 1GB dual-channel DDR2 533MHz memory, Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics card, 148GB WD Raptor HDDs in RAID 0 configuration, Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS audio card and Windows XP Professional, costs US$5458.

I can build that system for under 2000 dollars LOL
