What to choose OC Profile

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 2 OC profiles which are similar to each other. Core voltage, Core temps are same in both situation. Core temps for 4 cores are hovering around 33-38C at idle

First:
CPU FSB: 367MHz x 9 = 3.3GHz
Memory Bus : 490MHz x 2 = 980MHz effective DDR2 (4-4-4-10)

Second:
CPU FSB: 413MHz x 8 = 3.3GHz
Memory Bus : 495MHz x 2 = 990MHz effective DDR2 (4-4-4-10)

I am not sure which one to use. They both seem stable although the second profile does give better benchmark score in 3dmarks06 and synthetic memory benchmark in EVEREST. In contrast, the first profile does feel quicker respond computing in application opening....

In that case, I'd choose the 2nd one.

Go with practical feeling, a benchmark won't satisfy your every day computing. If the first feels faster then go for it, you should however be able to run lower temps using the lower multi.
