I have a question about the north bridge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Now that I have raised my FSB to 1300. CPU is at 2.6ghz. Voltages are fine and my temps are great. Only thing is, do I have to change anything regarding the north bridge? I was reading an article talking about 'straps' and stuff. In my BIOS..the north bridge voltage is set to auto?

Is that OK? Do I have to do ANYTHING else?

Thanks!

You don't have to, but I'd raise volts on NB to 1.5v or less. Helps with higher OCs, just make sure to watch your temps. I got an aftermarket for mine (in sig). Yourz is fine, unless u want to OC higher.

dont change anything if you rig is stable. also, try putting your FSB to 1333 for 2.66ghz, you should have no problems, and then your cpu will pretty much be a e6750.
