Default Fsb

does the FSB of the CPU have to match the FSB of the mobo, or will a higher speed mobo clock down to the speed of the CPU?

The front side bus is a part of the motherboard, it is the bus between the CPU and the northbridge.

It's easier to explain if we have more info. For all we know, you could be talking about an AMD platform.

um pretty sure with AMD platforms, the FSB really dosnt have as much of an affect as it does in Intel platforms.

There is no FSB on an AMD platform, but we don't know if he knows that.

The fact that the FSB has become a bottleneck is mentioned in the FSB link I posted above. Maybe I should also post a link to HyperTransport.
