Although at some point in the future that will be less true, right now and for years to come its for the most part true. CPU speed is King: not necessarily everything but its king. Anyhow if you really are interested in the topic make sure you review that thread for complete information. Although I used to think that too due to more bandwidth it would be faster but the bottom line is the cpu is utmost important factor here and the main reason for lowering the multi is for stabilizing your pc or running your memory within spec or etc. For more options pretty much.

I'm not saying you are dead wrong as clearly that will boost memory bandwidth but its just not that important right now or wont be for a while.
Well i did say once you hit the wall with the CPU clock then to further increase performance increase the FSB and memory clock.
