  1. hello all,

    I recently looked at the CPUZ programme from this site and saw that in the clocks section at the bottom it says:

    Core Speed: 2034.4 MHz
    Multiplier: x10.0
    Bus Speed (fsb?): 203.5 MHz my memory is ddr2 533 DUEL CHANNEL??
    HT Link: 1017.8 MHz

    Looks about right to me. 10x203.5=2035 which is close enough to the reported 2034.4

    Your ht link should be 203.5x5=1017.5 which is close enough to 1017.8.

    In other words nothing's wrong, you should be at 10x200=2000, and 200x5=1000, but your board(or the owner) is overclocking a very small bit.

    Memory speed is determined by the bus speed x a set memory multiplier in the bios, most likely 1.33 in your case, since ddr533 runs at 266mhz(1.33x200=266).

    And no, amd's don't have a fsb, that's on intel chips.
