Well, if you change the multiplier to x14 the (3.8ghz) CPU will run at 2.8ghz because it will run at the full FSB speed of 200mhz. You can drop the multi but won't drop the fsb.....if that's what you're asking.

The reason why the multi can be dropped is so that you can overclock the FSB higher than the speed clocks, for example; my 660 does 309x14 or 240x18, lowering the multi it's for gaining more bandwidth but honestly I don't see "that" much of a difference between 309x14 to 240x18.

Follow this link to learn everything you wanted to know about Lock-Free. This was a safety method intel built into the cpus so that a potentially low vcore mobo would not ruin a high powered cpu. Asus' marketing department turned it into a "feature".

What is lock free?
