Base Clock or Multiplier?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Running an i7 975EE on an Asus P6TD, and I'm wondering if I should push for a higher base clock or a higher multiplier. If anyone can help me out here, it would be greatly appreciated.

I just posted a thread on this a few hours ago:

TL,DR: It doesn't matter what you use for your CPU clock as long as you can make your other components stable. Focus on your other parts and use your unlocked multi to fill in the gaps for a maxed out CPU frequency.
