Simple Question

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Good day

1. I just want to know if HTT and FSB are desame? And what does HTT means?

2. I downloaded CPU-Z and reads that 3,4,4,8 @ 200Mhz as a default. I want to know if when overclocking which is better running a memory @ 133,166, or still @200Mhz? Sorry for being a noob.

Thanks in advance...

Basically yes they are the same. HTT Stands for HyperTransport Technology. 200MHz is the best, but if you can make your CPU go faster but your RAM can't hande it then you want to drop the speed of your RAM so your CPU can go higher.

It is best to run your ram at the highest mhz possible while maintaining stability. @200 is good, @250 is better, and so on. Later on it gets more complicated, but for the most part, in all instance more mhz is better.

Thanks for the info guys. Here's a scenario the FSB of my pc @ work is lock @ 1600 AMD Sempron 2800+ Palermo, But my memory frequency is unlock. i want to change it to 216Mhz for a try should i also change my memory timings as well? Will it run better if i change it to higher like 3,5,5,9?

Higher timings are worse, try lowering them. 3-3-3-6 or even 2.5-3-3-6 is possible. The first number has the largest effect on performance. The other's don't change it much, but they don't affect stability as much as the first number either.

What you are going to do is first change your timings to something like 3-6-6-12 2T. Then up your FSB. If you cannot boot or it is not stable you will have to use a ram divider, 166. If it does boot, you can start lowering the timings. You have to play around with them, and it takes time, but its well worth it! at 216 depending on your ram I would imagine you could go with 2.5 3-3-6 2T or better!

The 166MHz and 133MHz speeds you posted in the first post are called dividers because they "divide" the RAM speed so it runs slower than th CPU. If the HTT is locked on your board though, you won't be able to OC the traditional way.

Sir i lower my timings to 2.5,3,3,6 2T @ 233Mhz its fine right now. CPU-Z reads the frequency 228.5Mhz is it okay?

Thank you very much for the info's its extremely helpful

Sounds good to me. Try to post a screenshot of CPUZ if you can though.
