    I want to know the max fsb you can go on a n-Force 2 board. (independently of the memory)Another thing, is there a limitation on processor fsb, if you keep the frequency constant?

    That will vary greatly from board to board.

    However if you want MAX FSB nothing compares to the Abit NF7.

    Now where are you getting this? There is no "max". Only 1% of people get 250fsb and a small few crazy f0ckers in japan with LN2 have gotten 277fsb....you can't really say there is a "max". It will vary greatly from board to board.

    I meant that most nforce2 boards settings stop at 250FSB

    Here's a good round up of some nF2 boards right here at TT. The Gigabyte hit 252MHz.

    actually, my abit nf7-s lets you set the fsb up to 300mhz.

    Correct me it im wrong, it would be better to "overclock" a processor getting the max fsb out of it and then upping the multiplier to get a resonnable frequency(or insane if you want to overclock it), can a processor be fsb limited or it will always be the mainboard that max out?

    Yes the FSB is what you want. However a lot of boards will be limited FSB wise so once you find your limit there you can finish it off by upping the multipier.

    That's where luck comes into play. Some cpu's OC better than others.
