Processor Multiplier question

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the cpu Multiplier in my system is too high...

x38 seems awful high. I remember my old computers multiplier going to 12ish or so ?

 

I just built a brand new rig and I havent been in the computer scene lately. The last time I knew about current gen parts, Intel E8400's and 680i chipsets and DDR2 were the hot new thing.

 

Well I tried to change my signature so that I could list the specs in there, but I don't know how.

 

Intel core I7 2600K 3.4 ghz

Asus MAximus IV Extreme

G.skill DDR3-2200

OCZ Vertex 3 SSD

2600K's get 48x. The new intels are based on multi not FSB.

:withstupid:

The base clock (or FSB in the old days) is only 100 instead of 333 or 266 like the some older systems. Higher multipliers are needed to keep normal frequencies
