HTT vs Multiplier!!!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I have an AMD 64 3700 San Diego CPU and an Asus A8N Deluxe Mobo. I can get a stable 2.7GHz on stock voltages by either using a HTT of 245 and a multiplier of 11 or a HTT of 300 and a multiplier of 9. What is best??? The only difference that I find between them is that the latter setting gets more out of my RAM.

im slowly learning about amd processors myself, but i think the HTT of 300 w/ multi of 9 is the better performer... somone correct me if im wrong here please.

#2 is better because you get the added bonus of the faster ram.


Oh and welcome!

Whenver possible, run a higher HTT/FSB rather than a higher multi and lower HTT/FSB, its faster.

What should I put the HT setting at? At the moment I am putting it at x3. In the first setting I mentioned this makes the FSB 900, and in the second setting this makes the FSB 1200. Is 1200 a good value or not?

You dont want the HT over 1000. Ideally you want it at around 800. Lowering it dosent affect bandwidth that much and rasing it makes your cpu unstable.

Incorrect, no matter what, keep your HTT under 1000MHz at all times, my motherboard dosen't have a HTT multiplier setting in the BIOS but luckily it does it automatically so I believe my HTT is @ 960MHz or somthing like that, its more stable when it is under 1000MHz anyway.

Youll want the HT under 1000 so at 900 thats fine. There is a DFI board out I beleive that can take over 1000HT though, but thats the only one.

Right ok. I am getting a bit mixed up here. HTT is what you times by the multiplier to get your overall clock speed. What do you times by the HT to get the FSB speed?
