    This is probably a stupid question, and the answer is probably real simple, but.. check this out.

    If I run my FSB at 166MHz and my memory is set to 133MHz, the RAM runs at, as one would expect, 166MHz.

    But if I run my FSB at 166MHz and my memory at 100MHz, it says that my RAM runs at 125MHz.

    Anyone know why?

    Yeah i can feild that one...

    166/125 = 133/100 Its a 4:3 ratio.

    Check it on your calculator... it comes out to within 1 mhz or so.
