i currently have a 1700+ running at 215x11=2365 on a 8RDA+. Would it be better to run this computer at 220x10=2200? I can not get the 10.5 multiplier to work so that one can not be used. Thanks!!!

I dont think that sacrificing overall Mhz for higher FSB will benefit you really. I would try to get the FSB up a little more with you 11x multiplier.

I myself would say go for a higher FSB, but keep you multi.

I have got my other computer, a Barton 2500+ at 10*225, I like having a higher FSB, that is just me though.

I am a little confused, Why would you sacrifice overall Mhz for a few Mhz higher FSB?! If he is already in the 200Mhz range, what is the extra few going to do when the overall CPU Mhz is lowered?
