I am assuming you mean these lines?

..... CPU clock speed is 1793.3087 MHz.
..... host bus clock speed is 99.6280 MHz.

ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx

Host bus clock speed is also the one that has me worried. The guys here believe that it is merely the multiplier for the bus, or rather the "base" clock speed of the bus. I haven't found anything to prove that otherwise.

PIO modes are an old transfer method for hard drives. Since your using UDMA this is not a problem.

The pentium 4 series of processors uses a quad pumped f.s.b. This is where it sends four signals per clock. e.g. A 400 f.s.b P4. will need a host bus speed of 100 mhz. A 533 f.s.b p4. would need a host bus of 133 and so on. This is why some mother boards will only work with certain chips. Anyway, google around for the term ¨quad pumped bus¨ . you will soon get all the verification you need.
cheers.

Exclamation FSB and other speeds

The bus speed is 400MHz because it is "quadpumped" from 100MHz to 400. This is similar with DDR. That is why 400 (100MHz) and 533 (133MHz) FSB processors can run with PC-100 and PC-133 ram. Basically, this is what every P4 system does, and it's not bad. Because the FSB was reported to be at ~99MHz, which is practically 100MHz, you're fine.

The motherboard uses a "divider" for each other bus. There are multipliers, too (FSB × CPU multiplier = CPU speed; i.e. 100MHz × 20 multiplier = 2GHz CPU, 400MHz bus if it's a P4). The PCI divider is set to 3 for 100MHz FSBs (effectively reaching ~33.3MHz for the PCI bus) and 1.5 for the AGP bus.

Motherboards have worked like this for a long time, and they continue to work like that. Multipliers and dividers do not affect performance because even if they do, we have no systems without multipliers and dividers to use as benchmark standards to see that we're doing something wrong. This is one of the reasons for why you have the northbridge and southbridge chipsets.

You have checked that your FSB is all right because you have found out that it is working at a native 100MHz FSB, effecitvely 400MHz (QDR), and your motherboard showed that you have a 33MHz bus, so that was for the PCI slots because you can't have two buses for one component.

By the way, I was looking for PCI bus transfer rates on Yahoo when I stumbled upon this forum. I apologize to all whose posts came before mine. I scrolled down to the bottom of the page, registered, and posted a reply without looking at the latest posts.
