    no different issue entirely, the above post is a condensed cry for help from the lost post, so in what way do speeds relate to fsb? help me please!
    I probably wedited post and inadvertantly deleated it!

    looks as if you are asking about an intel buss relation, which is sorta different from amd...

    that being said the bus on an intel is whats called quad pumped or 1333FSB. So in actuallity the FSB is actually divided by 4 to gives you an actual bus speed of 333MHz in say CPU-z. Depending on the dividers because of the controller being different between intel and amd, if memory is linked it is the running the RAM at 667 MHZ.

    The real difference is that on intel the RAM is no longer controlled by the CPU, it controlled in northbridge on an Intel CPU.

    Sorta confusing to read but it is the general jist of how it works.
