What does blck tuning actually do for Sandy Bridge?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So explain to me for dummies - what does it actually do? What are the implications for the operating speed and health of devices related to blck? (I may go down as well; not simply up) I'm thinking of fine tuning overclocks by shifting blck from 97-103. My computer won't POST at 105.

Any help is appreciated.

Increasing your FSB overclocks your CPU just like increasing your multiplier does, the difference is that it also overclocks everything that operates off of the FSB. When you bump your multiplier, your CPU speed increases. When you bump your FSB, your CPU and basically everything that operates off your CPU is increased. Its more stressful and it can be harder to get stable overclocks when you manipulate the FSB. If youve got an unlocked multiplier, just use that.
