Will a high fsb(like 270) kill in the long run my Ultra-D?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My question is simple. Please disregard the impact high fsb has on ram(will use a divider) and tell me if a high fsb will damage my DFI NF4 mobo itself. Is it safe to be running 270fsb 24/7?

thanks

It will not damage the motherboard. I believe the FSB is the communication speed between the Northridge and the CPU.

Just like anything, if you apply enough voltage it will kill that part. I really don't remeber what the stock voltage was or where to change it. We are talking pre 2008. Over 12 years.

Should be safe, fsb does not effect voltage as far as I know, worst that can happen if too high pc will not boot or will bluescreen during use, then it's time to lower it.

I use to run 333+ fsb with opteron 165, on ultra d and cfx3200 for years without trouble. Frequency doesn't kill, voltage will.

 

I swear we played around with 400 to 500 fsb too. But you gotta play with multis

It can absolutely kill your mobo, don't listen to people saying otherwise. I don't know the standard FSB for your motherboard but there's a line where if it is too high - it won't boot and go into BSOD and a little lower - it will still work. If this safe value is ~10% higher than your standard FSB - it's going to be fine. What if it's 50%? You'll need a really good cooling on your mobo and airflow in the case because otherwise, you'll burn it in a few months of such stress. It's almost the same as overclocking your RAM or CPU. Yeah, you can make your 1.6V RAM work on 2.0V and +400-600-800 Mhz by some miracle, but for how long it will last?
