How do I increase HT link speed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
motherboard is m4a785gm AM2+.

cpu deneb X2 5000+ unlocked to quad.

NB multiplier at 8, cpu HT clock at 245, so NB is 1960mhz.

EDIT-- in BIOS it says HT Link Frequency> HT speed is 200mhz increments from 200 to 1600mhz.

Ive tried 200mhz and it shows 200 HT link in cpu-z, I tried it at 1.2ghz in BIOS cpuz gives 1225mhz.

1.6ghz also gives 1225mhz.


in BIOS the HT link width can be 8 or 16bit I have at auto.

HT Link multiplier and (CPU-)NB multiplier are only unlocked on Black Edition processors. The only way you can increase either of these past the highest setting is to increase HT Clock.

Doesn't the HT link speed have a very minimal effect on performance anyway?

My understanding is that the stock HT link speed is 1800mhz shown in cpu-z?

when I had 245*11 HT link speed was shown as 1225mhz in cpu-z.

Now I have 260*11 and HT link speed is 1300mhz, seems as if the HT link speed is HT clock*5.

I hope so, maybe there is a HT link multiplier in my BIOS that I'm missing, it seems to be at 5.

Anywa I think Ive seen ppl run the NB frequency above 2000mhz but I think having it 1800-2000 is ok and actually safer?

EDIT-- in BIOS it says HT Link Frequency> This I can change from 200 to 1.6ghz in 200 increments.
HT Link does not go above 1300mhz

Keep HT Link 2000Mhz +/- 100Mhz always. HT Link (Hypertransport bus/link) will degrade performance and increase instability (due to signal degrading) beyond 2350Mhz - and there's no guarantee that yours will go that far without degrading. Having said that, there is nothing gained by overclocking the HT Link - it's merely a pipeline (albeit a pipeline used to carry data for just about everything on the board).

CPU-NB (IMC/NB) should be overclocked as high as you can get it. For each 10% you increase the CPU/NB speed, memory bandwidth is increased 3-4% and latency is reduced 3-4%. The minimum for RAM is 3x the base speed, so for example 1600Mhz RAM would be base of 800Mhz x 3 = 2400Mhz CPU-NB, but that's just for the RAM, you'll still need to close the gap for the CPU. Anywhere from 2600Mhz to 3000Mhz at 4GHZ for example. I run my CPU-NB at 3250Mhz at 4.5GHZ CPU. You may need to bump CPU-NB voltage up to reach those speeds and anywhere up to 1.5v is ok.

seems I'm locked at 5 multiplier on mobo.

is 1200mhz HT link enough?
