<Seriously, how slow can you clock a Pentium and still have it run?

I think it's dynamic processor like the 8080 so there is a minimum clock
that is likley a few Mhz.

<More generally, can you build an IMSAI style box (with more LEDs :-) aroun
<a Pentium and be able to single step the processor?

Well, the imsai front pannel would have little relevance to the activities
of the CPU due to internal cache and prefetch.
