If possible, what about running the cpu nb at 268 x 10 = 2680? is that to high for cpu @ 3.75Ghz? I read somewhere that to high cpu nb vs cpu speed would give less improvment than a slightly lower cpu nb. You know anyting about that? Im quite a noob at this,hehe
less improvement doesn't mean less performance
It just means that for example from 2000 to 2300 you'll get 15% better performance, from 2300 to 2600 you'll get 10% better, and from 2600 to 2900 - 5% or less.
As of the HT - from the benches I've seen it starts to lose performance around 2200. But even if it begins to lose performance instantly past 2000, 200 over would still be faster than 200 under.
For example, at 1800 you lose 10% performance, at 2200 you lose 4%. You'd still lose, but lose less
Also, this is just a theoretical situation in case that performance drop starts from 2000Mhz onwards. I believe the treshold is a bit higher, around 2200-2300 (at least noticable performance drop).
Stability effect is instant.
Actually it's been long since I last read on the HT freq dilemma of AthII / PhII CPUs, I need a refreshment course Edited by ronnin426850 - 4/17/12 at 12:49am
