Fsb Vs. Multiplier!

Recommended Posts

okay, been awhile since i posted in this part of occ. good to be oc'ing again.

 

although i'm not a noob, this is probably a fairly simple question. i have a week 14

 

barton 2500, so it's unlocked(yeah!). i can run it like a 3200, 200x11, like any good

 

barton. that works out to 2.2ghz. right now i'm running at 220x10. same clock speed

 

higher fsb. i realize that this is preferable if everything stays stable. but what about

 

when your overall clock speed goes down, but fsb goes up? example: i was running

 

at 210x10. so which is better, 210x10 or 200x11. higher clock in the second, but lower

 

fsb. this is all really moot for me, since i did get it up to 220, but if i hadn't, would i have

 

been better off with the lower fsb and higher clock, or higher fsb and lower clock?

 

thanks

 

btw: 220x10 on stock vcore and vdimm.

Its a bit tougher to say if they are close like that and the actual clock speed is effected.. get your benching programs out, think thats the only way to be sure.

well, so far the benches (sandra) are showing that the memory scores go up

 

with the fsb. i just wondered because, since i have an unlocked cpu, i know i

 

can hit higher clocks with the multi instead of the fsb. i suppose i'll ljust have

 

to test it all ways and see.

The only change that I have noticed is a boost in mem scores when OC with a higher FSB, you really want to try to get the highest FSB possible so that your whole system will be boosted instead of jsut the CPU

Reading this post got me playing around more with my 2500 barton. I have it at a stable 210.5 X 11 @2.315 on air. Boost your fsb. Much better results. Keep up with vcore and and don't forget to monitor your temps.
