What performs better? Higher cpu clock or higher NB clock.

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I dont think i will be able to run the setup i want to:
CPU: 3625 NB:3750 HT:2000 RAM: 1666, 6-8-6-20-1T

So i will lower either the NB, CPU or the RAM timings. Which would give me the least decrease in gaming performance?

Sorry, cant edit for some reason.

By the way, the clocks will be:
CPU: 3500 NB 2750 HT:2000 RAM:1666 or
CPU: 3625 NB 2500 HT:2000 RAM:1666 or
CPU:3625 NB 2750 HT:2000 RAM:1666 with looser timings.

CPU:3625 NB 2750 HT:2000 RAM:1666 with looser timings will be better.

Try 1600 9-9-9-24 with NB @ 2800 with 1.35v on the cpu/nb voltage.

To be honest i think its my CPU thats not receiving enough voltage, because i could run P95 for a bit longer with cpu voltage at 1.375 but temps got too hot...
Maybe i should try cpu 3500 nb 2750 ram 1666 6-8-6-24?

2800/1666 9-9-9-24 looks likes its going to pass, has passed 9 tests so far
Been running 13 minutes
