IlijaPlayerP Posted December 7, 2008 Posted December 7, 2008 (edited) Hi. I wanted to know what stops the CPU to go more if the cooling is not a problem? Let's say I have LN2 Cooling on the CPU, on the Motherboard and liquid cooling for the RAM. The RAM Frequency is not a factor since the ratio can be lowered. What actually is holding the CPU to reach a higher freq.? I've seen two guys with two different mobos and other hardware but the same LN2 cooled CPU and they reach exactly the same frequency. I have two opinions about why the CPU won't go over that frequency: 1. The motherboard's BUS frequency is too high for the mobo so it's can't handle more. 2. The components inside the CPU (many transistors and other stuff) can't transfer heat fast enough to the cooling area because they're producing heat too fast, so the inside components are hot even if the CPU temp is -150 degrees Celsius (for example) so the CPU can't go more. Is any of my opinion correct, and if not, then what? P.S. And if you know about what holds RAM to go faster you can tell me too. Thanks Edited December 7, 2008 by IlijaPlayerP Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
