Phenom II X4 Multiplier overclock vs Bus speed

    Basically changing the multiplier only speeds the processor up while changing the bus speed changes the speed of everything on the system.
    It's easier and kind of safer to just change the multiplier but you might not see much of an improvement on benchmarks over changing the bus speed
