You might want to consider an ClawHammer with 1MB of L2, and I'm sure you know what motherboard I'm going to recommend. What it means by the FSB is integrated into the chip, is exactly that, the FSB is the link of the memory controller to the cache, and since the memory controller is in the core, it's all insie there and it's 128 bits wide and runs at the core frequency.

The chip has a built in memory controller, which means it communicates with directly with the memory which means (faster and more efficient). CPU - MEM, and MEM - CPU

On the old XP's the memory controller was found on the Northbridge of the motherboard, not on the actual chip itself. CPU - NB - MEM, MEM - NB - CPU.
