    So, I decided to see what what might happen if I put my pentium 4 3.2ghz in a biostar g31-m4 v.7 after passing the warning it had underclocked it to 2.13ghz & slowed my ram from 800mhz to 266mhz.
    If I continue to do this, what will happen? Or will it be just fine?

    According to biostar website, your cpu isn't compatible with the mobo.

    Maybe something, probably nothing.


    There is a possibility that your computer will be unstable but i doubt that it will cause physical damage if your cpu is well installed and the heatsink correctly seated.
