Overclocking CPU vs Graphics Card

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm curious...does a higher CPU overclock allow you to overclock your graphics card higher? Because after finally hitting 2.5Ghz with my processor, I can get higher artifact-free overclocks on my graphics card...

No, not directly anyway. EMF harmonics change as you fiddle with FSBs and what not. Can create some stability that way. Also increasing your memory bandwidth might indirectly help in ways I still don't understand.

It could affect the PCIe bus somehow...or maybe the CPU drawing more power makes the PSU increase its voltages.
Very nice!

what it has to do with is a more stable voltage/signal flow to the PCIe slot as NB Voltage and Bus width increase, thats it
