Default FSB specs

Hello, I'm a little confused about what Everest has to say about my FSB on my new system. Here is what it says:

CPU FSB 200.58 MHz (original: 200 MHz)

DIMM1: Corsair VS1GB533D2 1 GB DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM (4.0-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)

DIMM3: Corsair VS1GB533D2 1 GB DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM (4.0-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)

I thought that ram at 533mhz, with this cpu (P4 640), and Motherboard (Asus p5ld2) would mean the FSB speed would be 533 mhz. Is something set up incorrectly, or am I just not understanding things? My old system was pretty straight foreward. CPU, MB and RAM were all 133mhz, so the FSB speed was 133mhz.

thanx for any help

fsb is 200 but your bus speed should be 800. As far as the ram goes, that should be correct 4-4-4-12 @ 266MHz. I'm not sure why it doesn't actually run at speeds shown, i'm kinda curious about this myself. I have the same board as you, and ram timings, actually i changed them to 3-3-3-9, but looks good to me.
