CPU Multipliers? Whats the tradeoff?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so whats the deal with multipliers and clock spd? Is it better to run a lower multiplier and higher clock sp thereby increasing your RAM spd? what is the trade off for reducing the multiplier in favor of higher clock spds?

The Idea is to get the lower muti's with a high fsb will give you the best performance

Ya...it's harder to get high speeds, cause either the ram or mobo will limit the FSB.
