PCI Express x1 instead of x16 :( - Page 3

Most of the time, I had to unplug my cpu for a couple minutes, then restart and adjust, before the 'lock' would go away.
PCI-E goes through the northbridge?

- No, SB= south bridge, not NB. Memory information is run through the NB to the CPU, Graphics information is first routed to the SB, then to the NB, where it is passed to the cpu. The 'LDT' speed is the link between the SB and NB. Raising the LDT can improve graphics scores on games and benchies, as it raises the TxRx links between the NB and SB, causing for faster throughput, between the chips. Although, FSB and cpu/ram speeds will affect scores more significantly, the LDT speed is a good way to provide a little something extra. On older Nforce mobo's, LDT speeds over 2ghz, would cause issues for the system, and heat up the mobo and NB excessively.

Ty, for the small correction Mr Paul. It would seem as if my statement should read like this->

So why does raising the Pcie on the Intel make such a difference and not AMD so much?
103MHZ on the PCiex gets me stable OCs on my card?!

Core 2 Duo is a very good chip. The Intel P965 / 975X are good too, but they are not good enough for the Core 2 Duo. Core 2 Duo can take a Intel NB beyond what it was designed for, meaning you need a little extra juice () to keep things running.

Raising the PCI-e freq on an AMD, would only have marginal benefits, because the memory controller [part of an Intel NB] is inside the CPU. With the intel design, you can 'tweak' the mem controller a lot more.

Ok I see the beginnings of the extra BIOS options now...
Will PM with more questions...had no intentions of stealing the thread...
Thank you both
