FSB HT Speed question

Hi
I have a Biostar A770E3
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=450&tab=3

The spec's say the FSB speed is 2600Mhz... I don't get what this means because right now I have it OVERCLOCKED to 2500Mhz (3.5Ghz OC) and normal it runs at 2000 with no OC.

I don't get why the spec's say 2600Mhz, because I have stably gotten it to 2720Mhz (It was just running too hot with stock cooler @ 3.8Ghz)

Can anyone tell me? My guess is that 2600Mhz spec is Biostar's estimated max HT speed, and you can still OC past it, but i'm inexperienced so I can't be sure

  1. Would this be more appropriate under "Overclocking" threads?
  2. Of course it's an estimate, all clock speeds chosen by the manufacturer have some headroom for variability in silicon batches.
