Default fsb difference

my athlon is overclocked to 2.5ghz (200x12.5).i set the fsb to 209x12 to get same overclock but with more fsb to see what the difference would be but i got nearly identical benchmarks. thats with same ram timings too.so is there really a big advantage from a higher fsb.

Yes, 260*10 will be MUCH better than 200*13.

Small amounts like 9MHz increases won't yield REALLY noticable difference. Maybe 0.001 seconds faster in super_pi?

209x12 vs 200x12.5 is pointless, you can choose either one and it wont matter....flip a coin and a decide if you want, you wont notice a performance difference with such a small increase on the FSB..

if it were 260x10 vs 200x13 like 4W4K3 said I'd go with 260x10 hands down because that WOULD be a noticeable performance gain
