FSB vs Multiplier

Hi, i've got a Duron 1300 or whatever AMD calls it. (WCPUID says it's internal clock is running at 1300 mhz so i'll stick to that.) The mobo i have is an Asus A7N266 and for now i've fitted it with 256mb of DDR266.

The "problem" is that the fsb is 100mhz, so the memory is running at 200mhz instead of 266mhz.

Would it have any consequences if i raise the fsb to 133 and lower the multiplier to 10 (cpu is unlocked) so the memory is running at full speed and the cpu is still running at (close to) normal speed??

it all depends on your mobo. just try it and check if its stable. if the mobo is able to take it, then everything's gonna be ok

it would be fine...i would actually recomend it...

3 386DX-25's...12 volts...glue some ln2 and a wicked amount of overclocking and you get a willamantee minus 36 pins, 33.75 million transistors and a couple hundred mhz... :cool:

Should work perfect and give a nice boost in performance.

I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:

133FSB would give u more than 100FSB
but i don't know if you can do that..100 to 133FSB..a little far..but i'm not sure

If he lowers the multiplier to 10x or 9-9.5x it should run perfectly.

Isn't Duron's multiplier locked?

it can easly be unlocked however...unlike the pentiums..
