importance of matching FSB and memory speed
Posted on 2004-07-31
this is probably going to be considered a newbie question, but the systems I normally work with are preconfigured. Basically I'm wondering how important matching FSB and memory speed is. I'm looking at building a machine and I've got an atx motherboard, atx case, and a 450 wt power supply. The motherboard supports the follwing:
RAM: 4x DIMM Dual Channel DDR2 400/533 Max 4GB
I'm wondering what FSB/memory speed combination would provide the greatest stability and allow the memory to run in synchrounous mode. Would it be
FSB 800 DDR 400
FSB 533 and DDR 533?
What would be the best configuration in this case.
It's a P4 LGA 775 motherboard, I'm probably going to be putting a P4 3.2 in it
thanks in advance,
