I think it makes your RAM run at a lower frequency. When you overclock you'll make up for that.<br><br>
Edit: Also helps achieve a higher overclock.

it makes you able to raise the FSB past the speed that the ram can handle

<div style="font-style:italic;">an someone clarify the whole ram divider thing for me? help would be greatly appreciated</div>
Sorry to jump in late:<br><br>
FSB x Multi = CPU speed<br>
FSB x Divider = Memory speed<br><br>
As you raise FSB, eventually either the CPU or the memory will fail.<br><br>
So you can use a divider to control the Memory speed separately from the CPU speed. And use a Multi to control the CPU speed separately from the Memory speed too.<br><br>
You could download one of these memory calculating programs and play with it. They will explain alot for you.<br><br>
