When you put that number into the bios when you boot up and open CPUZ or what ever program to see the speed it'll show 4.0 Ghz. To get the ram at 1:1 just take the 444.4 and double it, put that number in the ram setting and voila it's done. Was just wondering if there was another formula to figure out the FSB at a X6 mulitplier.
Actually, to know what settings i need to set in bios to get my CPU to run a 4Ghz (For example) I just use a calculator and try various numbers. For example i know that 400x9 = 3.6Ghz so ill try something around 450 x 9 until i reach 4Ghz on my calculator. Then, i know what FSB and CPU multi i need to set in bios to reach 4Ghz. As for ram, i just set the FSB i want in bios and it automatically update the RAM dividers... The one in the middle is the 1:1 divider... Kinda lame but is quite easy method!
