what does FSB Strap to North Bridge" really mean? i mistook it as memory mhz?


in CPU configure

Code:
Max CPUID Value Limit

CPU TM Function
Execute Disable Bit
why red texts must be disable and green text is enable?

FSB Strap to NB means it will allow your memory to properly run at a 1:1 ratio.

1:1 is the best method for Intel.

Load Line calibration .. leave off.. its kinda like building a dam in a ram and not allowing it to flow properly.. it can cause damage.

Speedstep and C1E don't allow for stable overclocks if your overclocking otherwise leave them on.
