AMD XP 2100+ ( Tbred B AIUHB ) with Thermaltake Big Typhoon cooler
Asus A7N8X (rev1.2)
Kingston KVR400X64C3A/512 Dual Chanel 2x512 DDR 333
Radeon 9100 AGP4x
What is best combination FBS and multiplier for this components?
I have now stable:
2.337Mhz (12,5 x 187)
2,5 - 3 - 3 - 7
VCore - 1,8v
VChipset - 1,8
i need up FBS and down Multiplier?
what combination is best?
200x11 = 2200mhz
i need computer normally to edit video, sound, edit images, internet,.....

A faster FSB is always better than a higher multiplier. That becomes obvious
when you try to find maximum stable speed at different FSB settings. You'll
always get a higher core speed at a lower FSB. (As your figures above
suggest) That's because the CPU isn't doing as much work when it's not
getting the data as fast.
As you offered those two options I take it that it isn't stable at 200x11.5
(2.3GHz)? That proves my point. Faster FSB = CPU doing more work for a given
Your vcore is a bit high IMO, pretty much the maximum for safety/longevity
for a Tbred B. What is your die temp like after running at 100% for 10
minutes or more? Personally, if it were my main PC as your statement below
implies, I'd try it at 200 x 10.5 and drop the vcore until Prime95 fails,
then go back up one notch. (And re-test) You won't notice the difference
between 2.1GHz and 2.2GHz (Except for bragging rights and maybe *slightly*
faster encoding) and your machine will likely last a lot longer, have more
tolerance for exceptionally hot days or dust build-up etc. Margin for error.
