What actually happens when you've got other than 1 : 1 FSB ratio? As I understand it, that would produce some empty clocks in the system and reduce the overall preformance. So, is it better to put the FSB 1 : 1 at highest possible speed, or to force max FSB speed but with a multiplier as my memmory just can't take any higher? I've tried with 5 : 4 and the moment Windows logged on I got and error msg!

Usually with intels using the divider is OK and doesn't reduce performance. I would go with max FSB with multi if needed to lower the clock on your mem.
