When a motherboard is described as having a "1067MHz FSB", does this mean you cannot use CPUs with lower FSBs (eg. 800MHz) with the board, or does it mean UP TO 1067MHz?

Thanks

It means up to. Usually the mobos that support 1066 (not 1067) also support atleast 800mhz and some support 533mhz as well, but if your gonna use something lower like 533 id suggest checking the mobo's specs on its vendors website to make sure.

You can still use other cpus with less fsb. All that really means is it is capable of running the extreme editions of the processors. They are the ones with the 1067 fsb.

Heres whats coming up now.

On this website click on the "view specification chart" and you can find what cpu's are the 1066 bus.

Thanks guys
@ jigga - I was under the impression that the actual value was 1066.66 recurring - depends whether you want to round it up to 1067, or leave it as 1066. :whistling:
