It's for CPU overclocking. FSB*multiplier=clock speed.

Oh, and if u don't know what u are doing don't change it. This could result in a bad overclocking and that means CPU destroyed or performance decreased. And the 200 mhz/230mhz prolly means that the mobo is locked so that u can't make ur FSB go slower than 200mhz or faster than 230mhz.

My last post was still about the FSB. BIOS=basic input output settings. From there u can for example monitor temperatures and change many things. (some of these things are changed when overclocking so be carefull if u mess with BIOS)
