    FSB gives better performance than multiplier, I'd leave it where it is. Mhz is not everything.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    Well sort of....You want to get the max FSB you can achieve with the highest multiplier rather than simply raising the multiplier to get the highest core speed out of the CPU. But in Athlon systems it is generally more important to run your RAM in sync with your FSB so when you clock your FSB your RAM is generally the limiting factor. I have found that beyond a certain FSB the performance gains become less significant.

    Unless your RAM is so crappy that you have to leave it behind to run out of sync with the FSB but then you should invest in some better RAM IMO for the most significant performance increase.

    For each system it would be best to experiment with different combinations of settings to see which gives you the best performance. Patience is virtue when it comes to overclocking. Your system will find brick walls in many different directions.
