i didn't understood one thing !! in another guide it was said that your ram in frequency by 4 means 1333/4 in my case ! which is euqal to 333.25 ! My multiplier is 10 ! So if i want to go to 4 ghz than that isn't possible am i correct ? my multiplier is locked and can't go more than 10 so if i decrease the multiplier to 6 and increase the fsb than it would be more than 333.25mhz which is my limitation of ram so can i increase the fsb more than 333.25mhz if i decrease the multiplier ?

it's DDR for "Double Data Rate" so your RAM is actually 1333/2=667 MHz
Your FSB (if your CPU still has one of these it's already quite old...) will probably be something like 100 MHz, 133 MHz, 166 MHz, or 200 MHz.
This FSB is multiplied by the multiplier, resulting in your CPU Clock speed

ex: AMD XP 2000+
FSB: 133 MHz
Multiplier": 12.5x
Clock speed = 133x12.5 ~ 1.67 GHz
RAM clock needs to be matched to the FSB speed, for old DDR RAM, they had DDR266, 333 and 400 which was divided by 2 for FSB speed.

The modern Intel CPUs only use a "bus" now, and I'm pretty sure they arent locked to RAM speeds any longer as they were in the past.
You can only really overclock "K" series CPUs by increasing the multiplier and voltages these days, the BUS is not very flexible.

Past: Buy faster RAM, increase FSB
Now: Buy whatever RAM, buy K series Intel or AMD Black CPU, over-multiplier like crazy

To get 4.0 GHz, u would for example, do
Intel i5-2500k:
BUS: 100 MHz
Multipler: 40x
Clock speed = 100x40=4000MHz

first post was from 2004 - This article needs to be like.. locked please? lol

I can't see the first post. I see only a couple of sentences instead of a full article. Is that normal? I have the same problem with other articles too.

I'm having difficulty with my overclock ever since I have gotten the 280x. I have my Multiplier set to 42 and I have disabled all power saving features. I boot into windows and my overclock is showing up correctly. After playing BF3 or BF4 for a couple of minutes, the multiplier jumps down to 16 and the game starts to lag horribly. I have a 650w PSU and I am using an MSI motherboard. This motherboard does not support manual core voltage changes. I have it set to auto and it jumps up ti 1.3+ when it's on 4.2Ghz. Does anyone know why my CPU is doing this without my permission? Here is my original thread, where at first, I thought it was my GPU having issues.

The first memory bus was created by Data General when they came with one of the first computers. Each memory board could hold one bit, so they needed eight memory boards, they were using actual transistors, with resistors and capacitors in the board, and they were called a "Flip-Flop". So the computer bus was called a "byte" for the eight "bits". The main memory consisted of magnetic cores that were magnetized to hold the data. For quite a while the main problem holding back, progress in computers was the semiconductor memory.
