Which is better?
200x11 or 210x9 at 210 fsb I get 3183/2960 and at 200 I get 3042/2849
....which do you think is gunna be better for gaming...the 210 fsb may have better scores but is at a lower clock speed so whata you guys think?

I dont think that sacrificing clock speed for FSB Mhz is going to do you much good. It is a good idea to get the most FSB and highest clock speed ratio that you can, but 10Mhz FSB isn't worth the extra clock speed that you are looking at.

alrighty now I got it to 210x10 3187/2961...very small increase in scores for another multi I think.....whata you think?..I think 210x10 is gunna be my setting....best score and only 100mhZ lower..you agree?

uhg 210 aint stable so I think I am going to go for 200x11 for sure as it is ultra stable and the trade off is so minute it isn't worth the hassle....I could try 205x10 but then where is the point would be probably minute gain and might not be as stable.....so 200x11 I guess thats not bad for this ram:D....I should also probably try lowering by 1 so like 209x10 etc....ya think it's worth it?

200x11

210x9 = 1890MHz on the processor and 420MHz FSB
200x11 = 2200MHz and 400MHz FSB

The second option results in:

- 16.4% increase in Clock Speed(1890->2200)
- 4.7% decrease in FSB Speed(420->400)

While the first option gives:

- 14% decrease in Clock Speed(2200->1890)
- 5% increase in FSB Speed(400->420)

Now granted, there is probably all sorts of problems with my numbers haha, but that should give you a general idea.

Best bet is to try both and run 3DMark and PCMark and compare your results
