the front side bus (or FSB) is the highway that data takes to get anywhere inside your computer. When data travels to or from the processor or the memory or any of the cards in your computer (network card, video, sound or other cards) it takes the FSB to get there. The FSB cannot be upgraded without replacing the motherboard, unlike the processor or memory.

Is there any link between processor's fsb and ram's fsb?

They are the same thing. The front side bus (fsb) is primarily used by a computer as the communication line between the processor and RAM. (with some other technical components involved) However, the speed of ram should be the highest the computer can handle to get optimal performance out of it. (faster ram can keep up with the speed of the fsb and reduce idle time where the processor is waiting for a specific line of code)
