I'm really into computer hardware just like everyone else here im pretty shore. Ok Question is: Lets say you have a mobo rated at 800mhz FSB (Yea I know allot faster out there but trying keep this simple). Anyways even thou the mobo rated at 800mhz, the REAL FSB is 200mhz 4x (4x=multiplier). If the mobo is really has a 200mhz FSB then why is it rated at 800mhz? Dose multiplier mean there four times the data wires moving data (which would move four times the data but the data still moving from point A to point B at 200mhz or is the multiplier a like a amp for a FSB speeding it up by 4x? Im confused when it comes to this, I was hoping if one you guys that know your stuff can clear this up for me. Thanks for all the help and taking time to read this.
