HTT and NB Overclocking?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is it worth Over clocking the Hyper Transport or the North-bridge? im not seeing much of a gain in performance when i do. Also it seems to make my system really unstable. Should i up the Voltage on the HT or North-bridge to stable it out?

Yes, the FSB limits your CPU's performance so it is more beneficial to raise that before doing your multiplier. Only raise voltage if you get crashes on testing.
