Re: Should I leave FSb on auto?
You're gonna need to be more specific on the 'FSB' setting. If you put your FSB on auto that's just as good as having Speed Step enabled. If you're talking about the FSB:RAM ratio, then if auto works for you at 3ghz and your RAM works fine, then don't worry about it. You should be able to set it lower than 1066 with that board. It also depends on what kind of RAM you have and how high you can set it. What RAM do you have?
