  1. Best answer
    FSB * Multiplyer = CPU Speed

    EG: 333MHz FSB * 10x Multiplyer = 3.33GHz

    Note: Most FSB are measured in speeds ranging in the hundreds of Mz, although they are sometimes stated as 1332, 1600, etc. If so, divide by 4 to get the actual FSB speed. [The FSB on intel chipsets is quad pumped, hence the divide by 4 operation.]

    On newer systems, the equation is simplified to:

    333MHz * Multiplyer = CPU Speed

    Note the only way to OC now is to change the Multiplyer, as there is no more FSB.

    Hello! Have you ever found the answer to this question?! I see this was asked nearly 6 years ago and still no one has answered you.
