Was stock, now I just raised the bus speed from 200 to 240 (So I could keep my ram speed at 1600) but now I'm on, my computer says my processor is still at 3.2Ghz *what it was at first)
and CPU-Z says multiplier x 4 bus speed 240 total of 960 unless I'm doing something then the multiplier goes up to 16x and to core speed of 3800. Whats happening?

More about : raised bus speed raise voltage

Why do you want rise the FSB, when that CPU has unlock multiplier and you can rise it without affect the RAM speed, HT link speed and NB speed?

And yeah, in some point you will need rise the voltage for get the rig stable, just test the rig with prime95, LinX or OCCT to know if it's stable.
