23x vs 21x @ 4ghz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is a 21x multiplier @ 4ghz better than a 23x multiplier @ 4ghz?

I heard it was so I switched to 21x but now my voltages and temperatures are much higher, so i'm not sure if there is even a benefit and if there is one if it is even worth it.

Only benefit would be that you can have a higher memory speed, which in real life terms doesn't help you much - just go with the 23X multi, lower voltage and heat

23x. My memory is running at 1400mhz because of it. But I see no difference between 1600mhz and 1400mhz.

Temps are nice too. 27.5*c avg idle, 65*c max temps under load. All at 1.272v.

Darn! I've been running the 21-200 for the longest time, and was trying for 4263...
