You have decided to turn off two cores in order to increase the frequency of the other four to a higher level but at the end the performance of your four core is worse that the performance of a six core at a lower frequency.
Overclocking is done to increase performance not to achieve impressive numbers (at least for machines intended to be used normally and not just for contest benchmarks)

You have decided to remove your replies content but the quotes of them still exist in my replies and bottom line is that you never answered to my specific question about the NB voltage, you said that something was wrong in what I was saying but when I asked further explanation you told me to not care about that and learn things how they are and attached your overclock validation.
Anyway it is up to you to participate in whatever discussion you like but removing the content of previous replies is quire childish.

CPU/NB provides increased bandwidth to the CPU. It's the gatekeeper of incoming data to the CPU if you will.

Yes I have read the guide you refer to and that was why I opened this thread, I only intend to raise the cpu/NB frequency and keep the HT frequenxy at about 2000MHz so there shouldn't be a need to increase the voltage of the NB chip (890FX) but I see a lot of overclockers increasing it and it makes no sense.
For example in the Asus CH IV Formula Owners : Sheet1 , there are a lot of members that have increase the NB voltage to 1.25 or 1.3v with no reason since they still use HT of about 2000MHz.

Thank you very much for your links , actually I haven't seen el gappo guide and xd_1771 guide.

NB voltage might need to be bumped a notch or two... for stability if your RAM or NB clocks go pleasantly high... So if you're scratching your head at instability try bumping that voltage up a few notches, shouldn't be anything major though since it's not a component that's directlyaffected by your OC'ing.

I think when you say that you see some OC'ers increase the BOARD NB, sometimes I think you might be getting confused... they're both "the NB" but I would bet at least 60% of the references you saw in reference to the "NB" were actually CPU/NB.


BTW HT Link is on the SB no?

It may be the case with some entries but I see several others that have a different voltage value for cpu/NB and NB.
Anyway, I just mentioned it because it seemed strange.

I don't think so, maybe there is no north bridge in the traditional way like before the integrated memory controller, the NB is as it used to be but now the RAM has nothing to do with it and connects directly to the CPU, the rest of the peripherals still go through the so called NB (I have posted a couple of block diagrams in post #3 of this thread).

For example in my motherboard the chipset is AMD 890FX/SB850 , the first one is considered to be the NB and the second one the SB and this is how their voltage supplies are referred to the bios too, there is NB and SB voltage (and of course another for the internal cpu/NB).
The HT is between the cpu and 890 or 990 chip etc, aren't these NB chips?
