besides I dont see it on this list either.
(hell, Im sure even the P5Bdlx would struggle a big getting past 533 fsb.)

But with this stuff I could drop the multy to 6, FSB @ 533 and get the same thing....Is this practical?
Ahh... We got a smart one. taking advantage of RAM bandwidth

Youre right - if you drop the multi to 6 and run 533 fsb, you will get a noticable performance boost. But note that youre putting strain on your NB chip (memory controller) - so be sure to put a fan on the board's heatsink.
