cpu/nb question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok i have a couple of questions:

1. If i keep my ram at 1333, then is there a limit on how much i can raise my cpu/nb?

2. How many volts typically do u need for my motherboard to have 2600cpu/nb

3. Lastly, How is everyone doing?

1. No, the CPU/NB is the reference clock times the CPU/NB multiplier, at stock its (200 x 10). Still, if you can increase your memory clock or tighten the timings that'd help with performance.

2. I have mine running at 2730 (210 x 13) at 1.3 volts fully stable on a Gigabyte 870A-UD3 with a Phenom II X2 555BE. Some people can run 2800 at 1.275, others need up to 1.35. Some boards reach their limit at around 2600, others can go past 3200. I suggest starting at 1.35 and working your way down.

3. I'm doing good, my laptop comes in the mail today so I'm pretty happy.

I can do almost 3000mhz on the northbridge using 1.35 volts on my Crosshair IV. I wouldn't go higher than that without watercooling the mobo.

Max on a good air cooler for the CPU/NB voltage is 1.5v.

Yeah you can safely hit 1.5V on the CPU-NB voltage just as you would with the CPU voltage.... but chances are, you won't ever need it. A 3Ghz NB will be enough for adequate bandwidth even if you were running 2000Mhz RAM.
