Do ya know the program CPUZ? i found it sometime ago and found it somewhat useful for info on the comp. Under Clocks (Core#0) there are Core Speed (3200 MHz) and Multiplier (x 16.0) among others. What does the multiplier mean?

Multiplier X FSB (Front Side Bus) = CPU speed.

This explains better than I.
