Simple Overclocking Question - Page 2

post #11 of 26
It really depends!

OK say you want to better FPS in gaming. You would OC Processor and Graphics Processors First. Then add a little more umf by tweaking memory timings and speed. NB and HT OC as well. It all adds up see?

What happens when you tighten memory timings is you decrease latency time. It may be only .2 seconds. But then you go from 1600 to 1866 and open up a little more bandwidth. So from 8-8-8 800mhz you go to 9-10-9 933mhz. Some of that latency drops when those memory timings loosen though.

The crave for faster and faster and faster is why you see a LN2 pot bubbling lol. It can get addictive.

You then start benchmarking right? Pushing things to the limits. I broke IMC running HT in access of 4000mhz and NB past 3000mhz.

Most NB gets unstable at 2.5ghz. FX HT is stock 2.6ghz. There are limitations.

If you want the biggest boost, find a way to gain another 200mhz Processor speed. (psst more cooling wink.gif )

Thanks buddy really helped me out. If you want the biggest boost, find a way to gain another 200mhz Processor speed. (psst more cooling) I don't know overclock slang just yet but can you tell me what you mean by that? Cause I am just gonna assume you mean overclock the CPU higher than 4.5ghz.

Yes lol. overclock the cpu higher than 4.5ghz. But it requires more cpu voltage and in turn creates more heat.

The cooler they run, the further they overclock.

Alright. 5.0ghz on the multi here we go! Thanks again Shrimp!

5ghz would be nice!

Old rig. 5.2ghz. Water Delta was 50F.

I got this by just messing with values.

It seems you hardly need much help at all!!

Lol good show biggrin.gif

Got this before I gave up overclocking.
