stock FSB is 1066. Multiplier is 9. so 9x1066 = 2400mhz. If you up that FSB to 1333mhz, you get 3Ghz. If you up it to 1423mhz, you get 3.2Ghz, and so on...

If you've got a G0 stepping, then you can probably push the processor a little more. 1200mhz on the FSB is a modest overclock. If you've got a nice aftermarket cooler on the CPU, push that sucker!
