For some reason, when I first boot up my system it tells me I am running at 400mhz FSB, yet in my bios I have it set to 200mhz..

Also, i'm overclocking my Barton to 2GHZ (200mhz FSB x 10 cpu mondifier) and I have ALL voltage (mem, cpu, etc) set to [Auto], someone told me to be careful, it could fry my memory... is this true? And if so what should I set the voltage to?

Yeah, 200 MHz front side bus, double pumped = 400 MHz.

One issue of confusion is the labeling of front side bus speeds. Typically a FSB today is dual or quad channel, meaning a FSB speed advertised as being "333 MHz" may actually be 166 MHz dual channel, effectively meaning 333 MHz of speed. Nowadays, PC (X86) CPUs work with front side bus speeds ranging from 133 MHz dual channel (266 MHz effective) to 133 MHz quad channel (533 MHz effective).

OHH! Ok.. well how about the voltage on everything, am I at risk of frying it all?

Since you're using a Barton you should be in better shape than if you were using a Thoroughbred-B. But if you notice your system is unstable, you should bump up your voltages.

ok thanks.
