FSB and RAM: 1066 and 533 vs 667

I just read this on wikipedia:

Unlike the previous Pentium 4 and Pentium D design, the Core 2 technology sees a greater benefit from memory running synchronously with the Front Side Bus (FSB). This means that for the Conroe CPUs with FSB of 1066 MT/s, the ideal memory speed is PC2-4200. In some configurations, using PC2-5300 can actually decrease performance.

However, there is no reference.  Has anyone stumbled across discussion of this "fact"?

The guys at spcr have been very helpful smile [link] This inevitably leads to the subject of overclocking and, for someone who has never even taken the remotest interest in this area, it's a good example of why you might start doing it.

Thanks for the question and information, I intend to buy a new computer in a couple months when I have the money.

spcr is an awesome resource, and another great forum...I had read that "fact" as well, but that's a very informative thread.
