FSB Query?

  1. Hi, I have just run 3dmark on my setup. Now i got a pretty good rating but when i compared it to a few other machines that were listed on there it said my FSB was 200mhz while the other machines showed up at 800mhz FSB.

    The specs of my machine are in my profile, i thought it might of had something to do with me having 2gb of ram and they only had 1gb but there was a machine on there with 3gb and his still showed 800FSB. Is this a bad thing for my computer? is something wrong? just want to clear it up so i can sort it if it's not right. Thanks in advance. :)

    It's a p4 3.2 with 2gb ram

    ht-enables p4 systems have a 200mhz fsb, which is 'quad pumped', thus yielding performance equal to a straight-up 800mhz bus. you have nothing to be concerned about, because all ht-enabled p4 systems run at a 200mhz system bus by default.
