yessssss its called overclocking :clap:

you have you FSB and you have a multiplyer taking a chip that runs at 333mhz and making it run at 400 will increase its core speed (unless u lower the multiplyer)

ex. a 2.08ghz Barton runs at 333 fsb which is really 166..its multiplyed vy its multiplyer 12.5 to get that core speed of 2.08ghz...if you changed its fsb to 400 (200) it would change its core speed to 2.5ghz. :)

the chip does not need to be unlocked for you to change the fsb...only the multiplyer depends on it being locked or not...and what kinda ram you getting pcXXXX?
