New to AMD: What's HT link control?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is my first AMD OCing. I know FSB, RAM timing and voltage, etc. But I'm totally loss about HT link control. below are HT Link value of my motherboard (GA-MA69GM-S2H)
HT link: Auto, 8bit,16bit
HT link frequency: Auto, 200,400,600,800,1000
HT Drive strength: Auto, Manual: HT Drive strength (P) 0-31
HT Drive strength (N) 0-31
HT receiver control: Auto,Manual: 0-31
HT PLL control: Low speed, High speed
Please help me learn about these value. And its effect when OCing.
Thanks

I have never seen these values, you must have a very sophisticated BIOS.

The HT Links are the reason K8 beat out Netburst, they connect the CPU and its integrated memory controller to components on the mainboard. The HT Links also permit inter-core communication on the die instead of through the very slow FSB. They allow cores to work together better and increase AMD CPU performance on applications optimized for multi-core CPU.

Theres more info on this page. (Information above was from memory.)

Well the HT Link is the datapath that information uses on an AMD system, it's stock speed is 1Ghz, now you always want to keep it around 1Ghz otherwise it gets unstable. As you overclock your system, your HT Link speed goes up along with your RAM FSB, so to keep the HT Link stable at higher speeds you lower the multiplier, on a 600Mhz overclock I run it at 4x (800) which works out to just over 1Ghz HT Link speed.

Gigabyte's HT values are no listed like most other! .
The 1000=5x, etc are easly understandable as stated.
The rest, not a clue and none of those are represented in those fashions in my Crosshair.

Gigabyte huh? I'm getting a mobo from them, hopefully it will have as much in depthness to the BIOS in every area as it does in HT links.

I have the Gigabyte -k8nsnxp, they are great mobo's, and excellent control for overclocking.

sorry to just barge in like this, I did not even check the date on the thread so it may even be outdated. I am overclocking AMD 9950 Phenom and have only set the multiplyer to x15 to raise the cpu from 2.6 up to 3.1mhz. The problem is I do not see the HT Link value increase? It stays at 1004.6mhz?

Any suggestion welcome because i am an absolute noob

Thanks
Chris

the reason why the HT stays at the same value because your FSB stays the same 200.9x15 if you raise your FSB your HT link will go up but you dont have to increase your FSB since your CPU is unlocked hope that helps
