    Working with some old AT's at work today and i came to the conclusion:
    I say bring back the turbo button!
    with the amount of people overclocking these days you could program the turbo button to quick switch between 2 different FSB's.

    Neat idea, but I doubt you could do that while you were running. I am sure that would bolix up everything already in the ram, and Windows for one, would have a fit. Maybe a software supported option to reboot to an alternate bios configuration?

    I once had a small program that came with an asus mobo that let me change the cpu speed from windows desktop and apply it without reboot.

    Now I get your idea, but wasn't the idea of a "Turbo" button to actually allow the computer to be slowed down to play games designed for older comps?

    Kinda silly to call it a "turbo" button eh?

    SoftFSB can be used to change the FSB while running on some motherboards.

    But you want the button there!
    It's not the same if you don't have the little (or big in some cases) turbo button that trigers a little display showing the alterd speed.
    Someone could combine an LCD display with a button or two and have/make the right software for it, and BANG moden day turbo button! monitor the temps and all.
    Too bad i'm to lazy to acctually carry through with the idea
