What performs better? Higher cpu clock or higher NB clock. - Page 6

post #51 of 56
Only good way to find out is to run your own benchmarks after you change settings. I noticed that with high FSB but same CPU clock speed (dropped cpu multiplier), my applications would open up noticeably faster--after a cold boot, photoshop would open in half the time with a high FSB.

I would think with your CPU at 3GHz or above, you won't notice any decrease in performance from your CPU, so try to maintain that with the highest system bus speed possible.

Didn't read through the 5 pages of replies to see if this was stated already, so apologies if it was.

one core stopped , lasted 34 minutes completed 27 tests. Do i leave the other 5 running? or is that one core critical to stability?

two cores gone...

If any cores fail that means your system is unstable. I think you should set your RAM to stock timings and on the lowest divider. Work on getting your CPU OC'd then work on RAM.
