You're making the assumption that your final system settings will have your fsb and ram at equal speeds and that might not be the case. For instance, I run a 286 fsb, but ram at 230. Knowing your fsb max is nice,regardless of what your ram can do. It'll help when we use Gogar's Tool to find your final system settings. If you have the time, I'd continue until it stops or you hit 300 mhz, whichever comes first. Yes, you should leave your cpu on a low multiplier for this step also.
