I would have to say voltage and clock speed since most multipliers are locked so you can't change it.

System Specs
Opteron 165 cooled by Zalman 9500A LED // DFI Lanparty UT NF4-D // Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATA 3.0Gb/s 320-GB Hard Drive // Sapphire X1950XT 256MB cooled by Zalman VF900 Cu LED // 2x1GB OCZ EL Plantinum // Enermax NoiseTaker 430W // Pioneer DVD & Combo Optical Drive // 20" Samsung 206BW Monitor // Logitech Z-2300 Speakers // Logitech G11 Keyboard and Microsoft Sidewinder mouse // Antec Nine Hundred Case

you can change it down, usually. sometimes that is good if your mobo can handle high fsb speeds, as it raises the external clock of your cpu to a higher frequency to achieve the same result.
ie: 200 x 10 = 2000 (2ghz) OR
-----> 250 x 8 = 2000 (2ghz)
yeah, your clock speed is most important...that is what increases the performance of your computer.
you will reach a certain point ot where either your computer wont boot, or it will be unstable without more voltage. so it is important, too.
does that bios have an area where you can change the ht multiplier? it will probably be in the memory or advanced memory section..? i'm not familiar with your mobo, so i dont know the exact wording.
it will be a single digit number, probably 5.
