My question is about Front side bus I noticed my motherboard says it only has 1000 fsb. My cpu however says it has 3600.
What I want to know is
A.Is the cpu Front system bus truly 3600 cuz i see most motherboards have 2600fsb.
B.is my motherboard slowing down my cpu
c.When i update my motherboard what would i need as far as fsb to support that cpu or another one with equal or grater fsb.




my system is

FSB Is different from your CPU

Your MOBO isn't being slowed down.

If you have doubts look for the latest BIOS update.

fsb * multiplier = cpu speed, fsb is normaly 100, 133, 200Mhz depending on generation of processor.

Look up FSB on wikipedia, and follow it through to processor clockspeed and memory speeds.
