Picture this in your head....you're alone on the freeway driving along, would it matter to you if you had 5 or 6 lanes? Same thing with the HyperTransport Bus speed, it's overkill for your computer system. Lowering it from 1ghz won't make a difference. Is there a magic number to not go lower than? No,not really. Just keep it below 1ghz by using the next lower HTT multiplier as you raise your htt. To explain further, your system bottlenecks lay elsewhere in your system. Your computer can't sustain the use of a 1ghz HyperTransport Bus.
