I have been told that memory no mater what type will only run as fast a the MB FSB allows is this correct?
If it is, then due to the architectural design is it not better to run (for example....PC4200, 5400, 6400 at 533 667 and 800MHz respectily on a MB like the EP-8RDA6+PRO which has a FSB of 400MHz instead of PC3200 @ 400MHz?

Pro's and Con's Please.....
your thoughts.

You can run your RAM in sync (1:1 ratio), but you can also use dividers/multipliers to reach different speeds, you just have to know which one you need for your particular FSB and target RAM speed.

There are no pros or cons to it; you just need to know what divider/multiplier you need.

Thank you very much, where would I read / learn about what dividers/multipliers I would need?
