Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, AthlonII 170u (S) 2.0 GHz (25W) 2000 MHz HyperTransport 3.0 Socket AM3 / 2 GB
Considering a Compaq Presario Desktop (CQ5600F) with:

Hardware
Base processor
Athlon II 170u (S) 2.0 GHz (25W)
2000 MHz HyperTransport 3.0
Socket AM3
Chipset
GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
and
Motherboard
Manufacturer: Pegatron
Motherboard Name: M2N68-LA
HP/Compaq motherboard name: Narra5-GL6

Can somebody tell me the Bus Clock Speed?

As I understand it, this it the throughput speed and can be a real bottleneck.

"As I understand it, this it the throughput speed and can be a real bottleneck"

You're understanding is incorrect if what you're asking about is "Front Side Bus" (FSB). AMD systems don't use a FSB & haven't for a long time. It was replaced with the HyperTransport bus (HT) over 5 yrs ago. All modern AMD CPUs (Sempron, Athlon II, Phenom II) use a 200MHz reference clock but the HT speed varies from system to system depending on the hardware. For instance, you listed "2000 MHz HyperTransport 3.0" which is somewhat confusing. HT 3.0 can support several different speeds, the max is 2600MHz. But since the HT bus is bi-directional (similar to DDR), it can also be reported as 5200MHz or 5200MT/s (Mega-Transfers per second). It's unclear whether the 2000MHz HT you mentioned is actually 1000MHz x 2 or 4000MHz / 2.

The Athlon II 170u supports 1800MHz HT aka 3600MHz HT aka 3600MT/s.
