If the mobo says that it can support 400,533,800 FSB speeds, does that mean that it won't support anything above 800? For example I buy a CPU that has 800FSB, but I decide to overclock it to 900FSB, will the mobo still support it?

So do you guys all think my Shuttle mobo would be able to handle a 1000FSB CPU? (mobo supports 800FSB).

Wudaddy you will be fine. The mobo makers dont incorporate overclocked FSBs' because you are supposed to be running at stock (800mhz) FSB. I used to have a real crappy Chaintech mobo that cost me $80 which took my prescott to 4.0ghz, well over 800mhz FSB. You will be fine, dont even pay attention to the rated values.

good luck.

Thanks guys. I'm planning to get a cheap 2.6ghz Pentium 4 with HTT, 13x multiplyer and 800FSB and overclock it to 3.2ghz (which is around 985FSB). Now the only thing I'm worried about is if my RAM can run at 246mhz...
