    yeah, that's not very impressive. You got a good total speed by sacrificing FSB? On an archetecture that can only shine with the FSB to feed it? Please. You need to UP the FSB, not go down.

    stock is 166MHz. But 196MHz is still not high enough. You're much better off with 220 and a lower overall than 196 and this. See what you can get on the FSB; afterall, the P4 arch is bus-hungry.

    P4 FSB's are quad pumped, it's 196x4=784mhz...

    P4 A's and B's are 166x4 by default, C's are 200x4, and there's also a 266x4 (1066mhz) version out now as well...but i dont recall the designation right now.

    220x18 would be 3.9something GHz :dunno:

    what mobo?

    and no, you couldn't use the same multi with 220. And 220 was just an example. you may get more/less.
