OK so in theory your speed is 400MHZ
But the actual Bus is 100mhz Quad pumped so
100 times by 4 is 400

The same idea as DDR ram , like DDR400mhz actually runs at 200Mhz Doubled

Default Re: FSB question

did you set the setting to manual instead of auto? Also is it a prebuilt computer by a company or custom built?
