, I humbly apologize for what I restarted. I did not know this topic stirred so many..... emotions.
Now, as to the thread you listed, I read the whole thing. I understand what pauldovi is saying, and I see that he is right.
However, this thread, or more specifically the one I started focuses on a different topic. In the words of paul himself, here is what I want to know:

All I want to know is which one out weighs the other. A highest FSB I can attain with lower multiplier and a 1:1 RAM ratio (only that because that is what mine can do) or a lower FSB and higher multiplier with a different RAM ratio. (I guess this is beginning to get specific with my system...) (read my other thread about this if you want)
But then I read this and got muy confused:

6.29MB/s/MHz * 999 = 6284MB/s
You should get near those numbers if what you're saying is true. Or, at least, in a 1.28/1 ratio to one another. If it's GREATER than 1.28/1 better at 1:1 then you can blame it on the extra FSB and your theory MIGHT be/is likely true. If it is equal to 1.28/1 better on the 1:1 then you're likely right. If it is less then 1.28/1 better then you're 100% wrong as the extra FSB only serves to HELP the 1:1 look faster than the other and still falls short.
The ONLY way for you to REALLY test your idea is on an unlinked 680i chipset, and even then, that does away the very divider you're trying to test... which really means that there is NO WAY to test your hypothesis.
Now, this was solely my guess, but when I saw unlinked and put my RAM up to the max (800) it still did not run at 800. Therefore, I assumed (I know makes an *** out of u an me, lol) that it still ran a divider, just a more specific one.
However, take note that I assumed this, therefore I'd say it has a .001percent chance of being correct and a 99.999percent of being incorrect. If it is incorrect, then the above statement is right, and there may be no way to test my question.
PS- I am going to delete the entire post above, just to make sure no one gets overly angry again...
Again, sorry for coming across harsh, I was in the middle of cleaning my house for a showing, and I was frustrated by that too, but as I said, I am going to delete it! I don't want to be ****y and mean to any1, just want the best oc, u know?
Also, mr. bundle I dont understand this(NO sarcasm intended)

Could you explain why that is, I believe you I just like to know why, ya know?
