Wondering About Fsb And Multi.


Recommended Posts

poeple have told me that have a higher fsb is better than a multi.

many poeple lower their multi so they can have a higher FSb

 

uhh i don't know how to say this.

i'll try to make a a scenario. ok

 

computer A

fsb- 250

multi-10

speed-2500Mhz

computer B

fsb- 200

multi-12.5

speed-2500Mhz

 

I don't know what i'm asking. but wouldn't the computer A run hotter if the hight Vcore.

or would it run the same temp.

 

me, thinking outside the box.

 

If computer A does run hotter, because of higher FSb.

and you have to run it slower so it will have the same temp as computer B

 

computer A

fsb-250

multi-5

temp-60 c

speed-1250Mhz

computer B

fsb-200

multi-10

temp-60 c

speed-2000Mhz

 

would it still be better to have the higher fsb even if ir cost you speed in ghz.

I hope you understand my questions.

I see what you're getting at, but I'm not quite sure the temp differences are drastic enough for you to worry about. CPU and video card generate most of the heat in your case. And yes, you could drop the multiplier in order to cool the CPU, but there will be a noticeable performance hit at some point. Cool 'n' Quiet works similarly to the situation you're describing.

 

As for heat differences from changing the multplier, I'm not really sure how much it would be, or if it would be noticeable/measureable.

 

And I'm with Lobbdogg on the high FSB thing. The idea is to get your CPU and your RAM working at their top speeds.
