Default Well...

It means how fast the ram can interact with the cpu. Now don't go thinking you can put in faster ram and get a faster fsb. The cpu has to support the speed.

it stands for Front Side Bus. The 533 FBS is probably an Intel. Intel quad pumps their FSB so it is really 133mhz. Or DDR266
