My question is, Does it matter what the multiplier is as well as the bus? WHich makes a bigger difference? Is there a difference with a higher fsb and lower bus w/ the same mhz?

I've heard that the higher FSB at the same frequency (300 x 8 vs 240 x 10) is supposed to be faster, but I haven't seen any noticeable gain. There are supposedly some programs that utilize massive FSB over pure speed, but I'm yet to find one.

I always like tho have a higher FSB so I'd choose 300x8.<br><br>
That way you Ram & Chipset are running at the same higher rate........I think thats how it works anyway

Assuming RAM speed is the same, doesn't matter.<br><br>
There will be a difference, but benchmarks probably couldn't even pick it up.

Faster ram speed is usually better.

Are you running 1:1 at 240x10?</div>

I don't really care about benchies, I'm talking about games. Will there be a diff in games 300x8 vs 227x11? 227 ram running 5:6 while 300 ram runnign 1:2

Although faster ram speed would be ideal, ex. 1:1, AMD systems run better with tight timings and a lower memory freq. versus loose timings and higher bandwith.

it can't hurt though....if your board will run it...might as well. You might be able to get a bit of extra performance...FSB is the communication tool of everythign in your computer...other than teh Hyper Transport thinger...

Keep the HTT as close to 1000 an possible for the memory. The only way it hurts if it's excessively low. <br />
4x up to 260 3x beyond that.<br />
Some MBs are fine above 1000, 1080 is a known wall with many MBs but some can excede that and be stable but there is no advantage to it.

Which ever one uses 1:1 if any is the best because it allows to have tighter secondary timings.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

If your MoBo can pull it off, do it. OCing my HTT to 1320 stabilized my ram overclock by 5MHz (ON BH-5 at it's limit 5MHz is big) It allowed me to run near 3.0GHz on the next higher divider and added 3.5k+ to my 3dmark01 score.
