Sorry for my poor english, i'm from Spain and my english isn't very good...
Jacqlittle, your English is perfectly fine actually.

His "bus speed" is the HT Clock speed, not the HT Link speed (Hypertransport). I'm assuming he's increasing the HT Clock speed to aid in his processor overclock.

Hope that helps

The only reason I messed with NB voltage was because I was having stability issues previously with overclocked RAM and read that suggestion on Corsair's forums. After I brought the RAM frequency back to 800 (spec), everything was fine. I could probably bring back the voltage back to stock but just haven't bothered. It's only .05 volts up from stock anyway.

250x15 wouldn't boot. I would have to hit the reset switch, and then would be met with "Overclocking has failed. Adjust settings." on the POST screen.

250x14 for a 3.5GHz worked iirc, and so did 250x13, but I got errors in Prime95 due to RAM overclocked past spec.

I'm not interested in overclocking any further anyway. 3.6GHz is stable for 24/7 usage and that's all I could ask for. No overclocking is gonna amount to a quadcore CPU, and as soon 940s hit around $100, I'll think about upgrading. Hell, by that point, AMD's probably gonna have a new batch of CPUs out.

Whoops, don't know where I got 1.5V for the NB! Haha, it's only at 1.12V, which I raised from 1.10V originally. Hell, my board's settings only go to 1.4V max!

My HT Link speed is at 2.0GHz. Should it be set lower? Higher? What difference will it make? Also, my PCI-E frequency is at 100. Is there any reason to touch this?

MiataMike, it's worth looking into. It may lower your memory temps a tad.

The current HT Link speed is fine. Factory is 2Ghz so I don't see any reason to adjust it. You would probably see a difference if you overclocked the NB Frequency. Try also adjusting your memory sub-timings. You may notice a difference with lower CAS (ie. 6) and high NB Frequency.

For the PCI-E frequency I'd suggest leaving it at 100Mhz. In the past some users found that overclocking the PCI-E frequency (1-5Mhz) yielded better overclocking with the processor but that wasn't always the case. If anything, raising it can actually damage your hardware (from what I heard).

Good luck

I don't follow. My CAS is at 4 already.

MiataMike, my apologize. I thought you were running DDR3. In any case, you would still benefit more by overclocking the NB Frequency than the HT Link speed (Hypertransport).

Sorry for the confusion.

Good luck
