well the Socket 939 Athlon 64's
have 5 200Mhz Hypertransport connections from the Processor to the North Bridge

If you might notice on the Athlon 64 your ram(dual channels) is connect into the Cpu instead of the North Bridge like the Athlon xp and the P4's
you can overclock the processor's Hypertransport without overclocking the ram. u can overclock the ram without overclocking the processor :-). so the Front Speed Bus is basicly non existant.

When the PC is off and you are putting it together you slot the ram into the correct slots.
If you are asking these kinds of questions you need to read some more stuff on building.

Ok, basically, when you look at the athlon 64, you do not need to worry about the front side bus. You do not have to mix and match. All you need to do is have the correct socket processor fit into the correct socket mobo.
