To temper that; I can anecdotally say the members of our club seem to weigh-in in two clumps. One clump is around the 2.4-2.45 mark, the other is around the 2.75-2.8 mark. What stepping you possess may effect this, as does the chipset, RAM, and PWMs.
For these timings, how would I get to a nice safe number? Would I be able to overclock it higher if the ram was put at some nice timings? And what is this about disabling cores to overclock higher? I've noticed duo cores and quad cores don't seem to act any different in gaming performance. What about clock per clock on 1 core core verus 2 core? Anyone have any benchmarks? I would supposfully get a higher clock with only running 1 core eh? And this multiplyer, dropping that down to 9 and put a higher fsb work any better? Or is it higher the multiplyer the better?
