    Front side bus is 100 and multiplier is 22 to give a total cpu speed of 2.2 gig.


    System bus speed is400 . Is that the speed of your ram as well ?

    100 is kind of low for a pen4,i always thought P4 always came with a 400 or 553m front side bus.

    BTW,im likely not making total sense in this conversation in using computer terminology.

    Trt changing some of the numbers a bit. a processor with a higher bus speed will outperform a processor with the same end result but with a lower fsb.

    400 X 5.5= 2200.

    400mhz FSB is a 100mhz fSB just that its quad pumped sort of like the so called 266mhz DDR fsb which is really only 133mhz

    Cheers
