Difference in FSB & Multiplier at the Same Clock

Recommended Posts

What are the real differences between:

- High FSB x Low Multiplier = X Ghz

and

- Low FSB x High Multiplier = X Ghz

 

What are the pros and cons? How each method of overclocking can benefit in terms of performance, stability, and temp?

 

Thanks! :)

As far as I know , the only difference is stability . The lower FSB and higher multi gives more stability .

I have been thinking about the question in this thread for a while now and I want to learn more about this for my own benefit as well :)

 

Is it true that, although the lower FSB + higher Multi give you more stability, it sorta limits the amount you can tweak your overclock and thus sometimes doesn't allow you to reach a higher yet stable OC?

I dont think so , the only disadvantage is that it makes it harder to oc ram .

I for example am unable to get 2000mhz on my ram with anything higher than a 16.5 multi and still be at 4.2ghz
