Overclocking For Audio Production?????

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Using Nuendo 3 and Vst's, what factors will increase performance the most? I've been leaning toward cranking the FSB to 2600Mhz and lowering the multiplier to 10.

Any advice is appreciated.

with that setup, and since audio processing and converting is mostly a cpu-memory item, I would say overclocking the cpu and ram, and trying to keep the ram overclocked but with low timings, would be the best way to go.

Just make sure to stability test occasionally.

Thats what I thought. Since, I can't crank the CPU speed too much without error, I'll work on maximizing the FSB.

259 Fsb x 10.0?

How do I monitor the FSB temps? and, which multiplier to I change? in my Bios it has FSB x cpu and cpu multiplier.

I'm on stock memory timings at 534.7Mhz, I want to get it to the rated 1066.

Also memtest the OC'd rig, as VST's are ram-abusive and cycle in & out constantly.

Are you running samplers, synths, or FX? If cash allows, the Waves plug-ins offer a really nice performance-to-cpu ratio... not to mention PHENOMinal sound

if you have the BE model phenom, you shouldnt have to play too much with the reference clock (fsb) except for fine tuning and/or overclocking ram. BE chips are designed with unlocked multipliers to make OCing easier. To oc 400mhz just raise your multi by 2 and that should OC each core by 400mhz (1.6ghz total cpu speed increase)

I haven't installed my production software yet, I'm trying to get this thing tuned first. But I would like to be able to run all my processing on top of my midi, which takes alot of cpu and memory. I know the mutiplier is an easy way to get the speed up, but I'm more looking to speed up the memory. It seems the best way to do that is the fsb according to the Ultimate guide.

This board has the HT 3.0 for 2600 Mhz. Runs at 2000 default. I'm gonna play with it now and Ill post the results here and in the thread I made for my MB CPU combo, which it looks like I'm a loaner with since I'm the only one who has posted about it.
