Get the answer aquabob23 March 16, 2010 5:11:17 PM never mind i think i answered my own question. to reach max for my ram i would have to adjust my fsb to 533mhz and that would give me a processor speed of 3.73 ghz (533*7) which is probably not feasible for the e6550 does this sound right? Kralnor March 17, 2010 6:22:40 PM According to Intel themselves, the multiplier for the E6550 is 7, so that sounds correct. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=30783 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
