Default Re: why lower the mulitplier?

One reason to lower your multipler is so that you can run your CPU and memory at a 1:1 ratio ,like if your computer will just do 3.2gigs then ypu could lower your multipler to 8 and run your memory at 800 (400DDR) which would be 3.2 gigs ,and you would have more memory bandwidth.
