When I run cpu-z I get the following information

CPU = Intel Pentium D 940 3.2GHz Socket 775 Presler Technology 65nm Voltage1.232v

Clocks = core speed - 3200.2
multiplier - x16
bus speed - 200.0 MHz
Rated FSB - 800 MHZ

My question is, What does that bus speed refer to and why does it only say 200.0 MHz? Isnt it supposed to be 800MHz like the FSB?
Is that something I can adjust thru the bios?

My mobo is an asus p5n-E sli

Bus speed is generally the actual speed that information will flow across the system bus. The rated FSB speed is what happens after the "tricks" are applied to make it run faster (it has to do with how the information is physically transmitted over the bus and in which direction(s) that it does it).

So it sounds like you're saying that the bus speed of 200MHz is correct and I dont need to worry that the settings are wrong- thanks for the info I was a little worried when I saw that even though everything seems to be running fine.
