    North Bridge strapping and memory dividers in Gigabyte X48T BIOS

    I understand the divider part FSB:Memory but where does the Mhz strapping come into play in the BIOS?

    Northbridge Strap Available Memory Dividers
    200 MHz 5:3, 2:1
    266 MHz 5:4, 3:2, 2:1
    333 MHz 1:1, 6:5, 8:5, 2:1
    400 MHz 1:1, 4:3, 5:3, 2:1
    .
    Leaving this function on Auto, results in the 2:1 divider being picked for overclocking by default. For manual use, we found the 333 strap 2:1 divider to be the most stable combination to use for quad-core processors. For dual-core processors, the 266 strap and 3:2 divider worked best for us.

    This is from Anandtech review of the new Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6

    So basically it's said that for my E6750, 266 strap and 3:2 divider might work better. How so?

    Note that I don't see any difference between my X38T and the new X48T in this BIOS.
