Please tell me why / higher FSB

OK, I understand that, generally speaking, a higher FSB is more desirable when overclocking.

For example, my understanding is that 200 FSB x 10 is more desirable than 166 x 12.5 .

I have my own understanding of why that is. But I don't feel it is informed enough. Please help me to understand better.

Definition of overclocking: To push ur computer hardware harder than they were originally desgined for. When you push your FSB higher, you are not just pushing one hardware to it's limit, you can push your RAM to sync with the fsb, and in return, you get higher processor power/RAM transfering rate. When you only push the multiplier, the 12.5 you mentioned, it only pushes the processor.
