In windows you can install CPU-Z in Linux you can use lshw but that will only get you the the system clock and the module speed it will not tell you if the ram is overclocked or anything like CPU-Z will tell you in windows.

Ok thanks,
using cpu-z
I've two ram sticks one of which i doubt is not 400 fsb.
In SPD section of CPU-z its showing for two slots, slot 1 and slot 2.
for one RAM its showing "Max bandwidth" as 200 and for another one 166 Mhz.
What does it indicates ???


regards

Ya, you are absolutely right. I called my vendor to check that and it comes out to be 333fsb.
Thanks
