Question about Computers & Internet
I have an Intel P4 3.4 GHz processor installed. Is it possible to increase the system bus speed from 533MHz to 800MHz or 1066MHz? I haven't found the ability to adjust it in the BIOS settings. Any ideas?
The bus speed is set by the motherboard. Only the CPU clock speed can be adjusted in BIOS.

Here's a direct link to this motherboard's technical product specification document:
Scrolling down to page 21 of this PDF docuemnt, under section "1.7 System Memory", all details related to memory specs are listed.
Based on this, the answer to your question is: Yes. You can increase your RAM to 1 GB with 400 FSB speed.

Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.
Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.
If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.

Yes you can, the speed will be increased approximately more than 50%. There's also advantage if you can install two 512mb, which you'll see it as "dual channel", sometimes this is better as per the system configuration. Good luck. Thank you for using FixYa.

make sure that you don't need to overclock your setting (in BIOS ) so as to get full ddr3 frequency.That it, you need to overclock your CPU speed and if you want to work at great speed, try you upgrade you processor.
try a core 2 duo or a quad-core and make sure that it matches with your FSB, with maximum L catch ( 12 mb)
