Will I benefit from HT off turbo off and a higher blck?

I have DDR3-2000 memory running at 10x, would running it at 6x or 8x result in less performance?

In my testing, I have found that higher blck, with HT/Turbo on requires a lot of vtt (1.5 or more) for stability with temps going into the 80s on water. Will I see a noticeable performance gain 24/7 and is it worth the stress on the components?

Thanks
I prefer HT on but you hit the nail it comes down to Temps.. Encoding or rendering (with the right app) and HT provides a big benefit. I also have 2000 memory and if you like to fine tune then there is a gain from higher freq. Also setting memory to Extreme and with command rate 1 provides tighter internals and hence performance.

You would save some vtt (depending on mem brand and capacity i.e 6 or 12 gb) so may suit you better if temps are a concern. I use a 25 mutli with 960 and have utilised 21, 23 and 25 and find the higher the multi the less IMC stress/heat and hence less voltage required (be it slightly 2-4 deg). So a benefit there also..

First is stability then slowly tweak your way up.. but it's worth the extra effort to push memory and multi.. high blck doesn't provide much benefit over higher multi, but then again higher mem freq over 1600 doesn't provide much benefit either - to add context.

Fortunately i've acheived both so mem bandwidth is about 20% higher and internal level 2 and 3 ns cache delays is also optimal..

If you need a hand post your settings via the template and i'll have a look for you mate.

Good luck

ok guys i need some help ive recently built a new rig ( see link in sig) and when i go to power it up i get nothing except 2 led's ( next to the ram and in the middle one orange one green ) on the mobo that apparently mean ddr something and the enermax power supply goes red which means power guard or something.. so i unplug both graphics cards ( as per gigabytes troubleshooting guide) except the cpu and mobo and it works the mobo has all its leds lit up and the power supply went green.. yay but that leaves me without graphics cards.

whats this mean????

Try one card at a time. Might be a bad seat on a GPU.

so dismantle my whole water cooled pc to reseat the gpu's? no way. there seated fine they dont look loose at all they dont feel loose and the clips are solid as . will do if it is my last option though thanks

I never said dismantle the whole PC. I just said take one card out and try it with one card in.

Like Sin has said it does support the CPU.
If you plan on clocking higher then 5.5 this is what LSDMEASAP said, "The hard mod is OCP/OVP mod for when pushing past 5.5-6Ghz so the system does not shut down."

Yeah, that makes it tough with two cards.
I know on a few occasions I have just unscrewed my single card from the block and left the loop in side so I could get to the card but you probably don't have that option.

well i can but i just didn't want to drain the loop cause it was a pain getting the air out of the rads the first time. ( turning the comp upside down and crud it was that bad.) plus it means ill have to get some more utopia.
