question regarding multiplyers and FSB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Im curious if decreasing my multiplier which is set at x11 to maybe a lower # like x9 and then increase the FSB frequency would this allow me to reach a higher CPU frequency? Just curious read someone talking about this on another overclocking forum, was wondering if there was any truth to it I got my CPU running @ 2.65Ghz stable from 2.2ghz so not really sure how much more I could take it but I would like to get to 2.8ghz.

It really depends on your situation. If your memory sucks, you're going to be better off with a higher multi, but if you are having a frequency ceiling, lowering the multi and stepping up your memory will help. That way you could acheive about the same speed with better memory bandwidth.

well im running same memory as you, so did you ever experiment with lowering your multiplier with the patriot XBL 4800 Memory?
