North bridge overclocking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So after running Intel for years I have switched back to AMD. Right now I have a Sempron 145 at 4ghz which is fun, but I know AMD benefits greatly by overclocking the north bridge.

Its not the NB but the CPU/NB which is different. The Phenom II line was the one that benefited from it the most. Not sure how Semprons do but I wouldnt think it would be too much different. Usually 2600 MHz is about the sweet spot. Anything much more than that doesnt seem to help that much. Dont bother with the HT Link speed as that does nothing (works on FX chips though). You can actually drop the HT Link speed down to 1800 MHz and it can help with your stability at higher clocks and buy you an extra couple MHz.
