9x333, 8x375, or 7x428 on a Q6600 - Which is faster? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Ya I just keep my 6600 and 6400 at stock multi, at around 380 and 430fsb respectively. I've never really noticed much difference, and I can run lower volts too. I've played with the multi to see what my ram can do, but 24/7 I don't see a reason to really.

I just read the FSB1333 Intel Processors & New 2007 CPU Charts article over at TH.com and am happy to see that the testers over there have drawn the same conclusion that I have about fixed final core speeds with higher and higher FSB speeds: faster FSB speeds w/ a C2Q/C2D don't equate to faster real-world benchmarks.

Have a look at page 8 from their article comparing the "old" 1066 MHz FSB to the "new" 1333 MHz FSB chips: average gain <1 %.
