it only looks to see if the results are the same, however it will still pass you if the results are negative, you have to look to see if the result is negative and you failed if it is
you will find i am highly against most fsb ocing, however i run mine at 300. i have primed for 24 hours, rendered/encoded and ran every stress i can for countless hours ( proof is though out this thread ) so i wanted to comment
i run 2400 ram, i see a distinct difference @ 2700 cpu/nb and i can prove it via benchmarks
300fsb lets me run 2400 ram and 2700 cpu/nb
as an added bonus i also run 3900 ht, which helps my quadfire. do i really think i get 3900 ( x 2 ) no but again when i bench i can see a VERY distinct difference, (last time i compared which was i dunno amd 14xx drivers i was over 1k higher in 3dm11 ) since i stabilized my oc i have not had any corruption, i am betting for 2.5 year of the top of my head. - not including if i was benching !!!! esp suicide runs
i know the ht is stable every time i was not i would pass all benchmarks, but fail when ripping blurays
i have since adj ht voltage and never failed since !
he is correct as usual
ht and cpu/nb being the same are not a thing people keep trying ot make it a thing that they have to match, there was a large rumor that even kyad said that it helped bulldozer, with that said i have never seen proof.
but vishara has had ZERO proof presented that making cpu/nb/ht the same helps ocing , but people keep spreading the rumor
one uses old instructions and generates 40gflops, the avx uses avx instructions and generates 80+gflops ! ( in windows 7 you need the first service pack installed iirc for this to work right )
no you need to know your chip, ime you use the same vcore at just multi then with fsb and multi. this is same for cpu/nnb as well it uses same vcore as at stock fsb and using just multi to stabilize
