I'm new here and have done some searching but can't find the answer to my question. I have an E7300 cpu. When I run CPU-Z it tells me that my bus speed is 267 and rated FSB is 1066. From searching this I understand that CPU speed equals bus speed X muliplier. My question is why is the "rated" FSB 1066 when the actual bus speed is 267?

You take the fsb and multiply it by 4 to get the rated speed. This is what the rest of your components (nb and sb) will run at.
