Multiplyer Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi

I'm a bit of a noob at this and to put it bluntly the question i need an answer to is.

Why does a processor overclocked with a lower multiplyer and higher FSB perform better than a higher multiplyer and lower fsb?

Also

I currently have my processor overclocked at 3.3 from it's stock 2.6 (E6700) it is on a thermalTake blue orb to keep it cool and is currently clocked at 333x10 (3.3) with defualt 1.3250 voltage running at 58-63 degrees.

Is there somthin i should take into conideration?

High FSB = Greater & Faster Bandwidth all round

Although the key to a successful High FSB is great ram so you can keep the 1:1 ratio

When raising the FSB you are raising the speed of the system as a whole (you are raising the FSB, RAM SPEED, and CPU SPEED). When raising the multiplier you are only raising the speed of the CPU. The idea in overclocking is to get every part going as fast as possible. This is done to decrease bottlenecks. So. Some Examples...

AMD Athlon 3700+ @ Stock is

11X200=2200 MHZ. This means the FSB is at 200, which means the ram is running at stock settings. However, if you do

10X220=2200 MHZ, then your FSB is 220, which means your ram is overclocked, and will send information back to your CPU faster.

That is a very simple example, as there are alot more variances to take into consideration such as ram timings, etc, etc. However, that is the just of it, and why a higher FSB performs better.
